Kia Picanto: sizes and dimensions guide

The Kia Picanto city car has earned an admirable reputation for its quality, style and seven-year warranty. Its compact dimensions make it an excellent ally around tight city streets but does it make it too small to fit the weekly shop in?

To help, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide to the Kia Picanto’s key dimensions. If you like the look of this city slicker, put the Kia Picanto in our car configurator to see how much carwow could help you save.

Kia Picanto exterior dimensions

The Picanto’s compact size makes it very easy to manoeuvre around city streets and squeeze into tiny parking spaces. It’s noticeably narrower than its main rival, the Volkswagen Up, meaning gaps in traffic become that much more welcoming.

Exterior dimensions
Length 3,595mm
Width excluding door mirrors 1,595mm
Height 1,490mm
Wheelbase 2,385mm

Kia Picanto interior dimensions

The increased wheelbase over the previous Picanto adds some welcome extra interior space. It’s hardly what you would consider cavernous, but four adults can fit in provided you’re not undertaking too long a journey.

Interior dimensions
Headroom (front/rear) 1,002mm/962mm
Legroom (front/rear) 1,070mm/820mm

Kia Picanto boot space

The Picanto is some way off the leaders in its class when it comes to boot space, but it’s still better than the diminutive Fiat 500. The 60:40 split rear seats help increase capacity, especially on five-door models.

Luggage capacity
Seats up (three-door/five-door) 200 litres/200 litres
Seats folded (three-door/five-door) 605 litres/870 litres

Kia Picanto turning circle and fuel tank capacity

The Picanto’s tiny 9.8 metre turning circle matches that of the VW Up – you’ll struggle to find a street narrow enough for you to really put it to the test. It matches the Up again with its 35-litre fuel tank that, thanks to some efficient engines, should still deliver respectable range.

Turning circle 9.8 metres
Fuel tank 35 litres

Kia Picanto weight

The Picanto is small which naturally makes it light. Its light weight brings benefits in terms of improved performance and enhanced fuel efficiency combined with making it more responsive and entertaining to drive. Bear its light weight in mind if you’re planning on using a heavily loaded trailer.

Lightest 915kg
Heaviest 1,076kg
