As for the Picanto Wave, Kia says this version of the popular supermini has been ‘inspired by sunny beaches and blue skies’ – meaning it’s painted in a blue hue, with matching denim-style upholstery.

Standard equipment on the Wave includes 15-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, a reversing camera and the same infotainment system as the Stonic, support for wireless phone charging.

Powered by a 1.0-litre petrol engine mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, the Picanto Wave is available from £11,895. Both models are now on sale in Kia dealerships around the country.
