KIA INTRODUCES THE STONIC: AN EYE-CATCHING AND CONFIDENT COMPACT CROSSOVER

Wednesday, 7 June 2017

  • The all-new Kia Stonic is inspired by larger Kia SUVs
  • New vehicle brings compact dimensions and a low centre of gravity to the class
  • Customisable options offered like never before on a Kia
  • On sale in the second half of 2017

Kia’s new B-segment crossover will be named ‘Stonic’. An eye-catching and confident compact crossover with true European design flair, the Stonic is inspired by the form and function of larger Kia SUVs.

A sweeping roofline and uniquely designed roof rack add a sporty look to the vehicle. The unique tail lamp graphics amplify Stonic’s young and futuristic appearance. The car blends sharp horizontal feature lines with softer sculpted surfaces, and brings compact dimensions and a low centre of gravity to the class.

The European-designed cabin echoes the appearance of the exterior, with straight lines, smooth surfaces and geometric design forms. The Stonic’s interior places technology and ergonomics at its heart, with smart packaging maximising space for all occupants, and a ‘floating’ HMI (human-machine interface) seamlessly blending smartphone access with the car’s many functions.

On sale in the second half of 2017, the Stonic will be the most customisable Kia ever, inside and out.
