If you want to change your car this summer take a serious look at one of the Korean brands.
The Which? group took a survey and the consumers named Kia Picanto as the most reliable car for Britain.
In recent years, Honda, Toyota and Mazda, 3 Japanese brands have dominated the rankings. But the Korean marques fought their way into the list and earned their places in the top 10 carmakers.
According to the survey, small cars are the best reliable for consumers.
Kia Picanto became the first medalist in the Which? Top, scoring higher then Mazda and Daihatsu Sirion.
However, Toyota and Honda dominates Which? Car’s reliability figures, in a top of used cars. Overall, Which? survey suggests the duo are being challenged by Korean rivals Kia and Hyundai.
The Korean brands suffer from rapid depreciation, that’s why they make an excellent choice for used buys because they are comfortable and reliable. And their 5 or 7 years warranty is a huge advantage. Most manufacturers sell cars with only three years’ cover.
While Honda has moved upmarket, with inevitably higher price tags, the Korean companies have moved into its traditional territory, and the prospect of the 5 or 7 year warranty offered by Kia and Hyundai will, for many, be a deal clincher.
