Kia have fully revealed the new Stonic compact crossover.
The B-SUV segment one of Europe’s fastest growing car segments and is forecasted to hit two million annual sales in Europe by 2020.
Outside design sees crisp horizontal feature lines complementing with soft sculpted panelling.
Stonic comes with a “Targa” style roof allowing buyers to choose a two-tone paint finish with a choice of up to five colours for the roof.
Inside the Stonic, personalisation continues with a choice of colour packs to choose from. For car-tech, Stonic comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, touchscreen infotainment system, heated front seats, cruise control and keyless entry.
Even with the compact dimensions, the Stonic maximises interior space for all occupants and comes with a 352 litre boot.
Stonic will come with a range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines. Petrol engines are the 120 ps 1.0-litre T-GDI, 1.25 and 1.4-litre MPI engines. A 1.6-litre diesel engine rounds up the engine range.
Electronic Stability Control and Vehicle Stability Management comes as standard to help the Stonic produce an enjoyable drive.
There’s also the option to add Kia’s DRiVE WISE Advanced Driver Assistance Systems which include Autonomous Emergency Braking with pedestrian recognition, Lane Departure Warning System, Forward Collision Alert and Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
“The Kia Stonic will be one of the most compelling new cars in this rapidly-expanding class, backed by Kia’s unique warranty, and the brand’s reputation for reliability, quality and contemporary design. As the segment expands, the Stonic looks set to become one of our best-selling cars.”
said Michael Cole, Chief Operating Officer of Kia Motors Europe.
The new Kia Stonic will go on sale later this year.
