Kia have an established position in the market as manufacturers of stylish, robust SUV's. Bucking the trend of the traditional European off-road vehicles which have historically been all utility and no beauty. Kia expect the current global SUV market to double in the next 2 -3 years and have positioned their latest innovation, the Kia Stonic, launched in Autumn 2017, at the heart of this ambitious expansion. Kia have joined the Far East charge upon the European market with their design being more athletic than body builder. A sleek, toned body shape and simple approach to layout has made Sportage one the most popular SUV's in the UK.
Kia's first SUV, the Sportage won the IF product design award in 2016. The stylish, urban Stonic is very much built with same DNA as it's big brother. Smaller in size than the Sportage, the Kia Stonic is very familiar in design - being styled in the family likeness.
Whether wanting to upgrade from the Cee'd or down from a Sportage due to family changes, the Stonic sits perfectly in the middle ground offering the best of both worlds. For customers looking to upsize from a supermini or small family hatchback the All-New Kia Stonic provides a generous space upgrade without breaking the bank. For those who may be looking to downsize from a full-size SUV, Stonic strikes a happy medium between size and economy.
Specification and Trim Levels
At launch there will be two trim levels: '2' and 'First Edition'. The Kia Stonic '2' is very well equipped with a long list of standard features. The Kia Stonic 'First Edition' includes a range of premium features in addition to the ones included in the standard Stonic '2'.
Performance and Economy
Stonic is a nippy, urban SUV, with several engine options. Designed for agility rather than for its' pulling power, the roll is minimised due to anti-roll suspension bars and responsive suspension system. Responsive in curves and giving a great ride due to the smooth handling, even on rough terrain.
The Stonic SUV is equipped with a small, powerful but incredibly economical engine. For petrol fans, there's a turbocharged 1.0-litre (T-GDI) unit producing 118 bhp, for a little more thrust there is also a 1.4-litre naturally aspirated 98 bhp engine option. Should you prefer a diesel powertrain, a 1.6-litre 108 bhp CRDi diesel engine is also available, this version provides the lowest CO2 emissions of the range with combined fuel economy ratings of between 51 and 67.3 mpg depending on your choice of engine.
