New Kia Picanto is Great for Savers

The new Kia Picanto is a dream come true for those car buyers looking to save money in these troubled economic times.  One of the main costs of motoring today is road tax, something which for the modern vehicle is calculated using a sliding scale that is based around carbon emissions.  The more pollution your vehicle pumps out into the atmosphere, the more money you have to pay out in road tax.  The great majority of the worst offenders in terms of polluting vehicles sit in the "M" tax band, which costs those motorists upwards of £460 per annum.  Over a period of five years that comes to a total of around £2,300, which pretty much amounts to the price of a good quality second-hand car.  In comparison with this, however, the least polluting vehicles, which sit in the A/£0 tax band, mean that their owners have to pay precisely zero in the way of road tax.

The new Kia Picanto comes in no less than 11 different versions, seven of which are tax free.  Even the least efficient of all the 11 versions will only cost their owners £95 per annum in tax.  Several of the variants come with a fuel economy rating of 67.3 miles per gallon, which should save plenty of money in itself, and can even return up to as much as 78.5 miles per gallon on the extra-urban cycle.

The Picanto range starts at just £7,795 and comes with a seven year Car Warranty as well, which certainly removes the cost of expensive repairs.
