The All-New Kia Stonic compact crossover SUV is available now at Allen Kia dealerships in Bath and Solihull.
This completely new model is available with either 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines.
Taking several design cues from its larger sister SUVs (the popular Sportage and Sorento), the All-New Rio, and the Kia Provo concept car, the stunning Stonic has Kia's instantly recognisable 'tiger-nose' grille, a low centre of gravity, a sweeping roofline and roof rack, plus sharp horizontal lines and tail lights. These lend the SUV a beautifully well balanced and sporty look.A ‘Targa’-style roof will let owners opt for two-tone paintwork. There will reportedly be up to 20 colour combinations as there will be arange of up to five different roof colours.
Driver aids feature cruise control, Electronic Stability Control and
Vehicle Stability Management (including Torque Vectoring by Braking,
Straight Line Stability, and Cornering Brake Control). Customers can
select options from Kia’s DRiVE WISE Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
for additional safety technology, such as Autonomous Emergency Braking
with pedestrian recognition and Forward Collision Alert, Blind Spot
Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, a Lane Departure Warning
System, High Beam Assist, and Driver Attention Warning.
A range of lightweight, turbocharged petrol and diesel engines will be available with a manual transmission to provide optimal driving feedback and efficiency. Owners can choose from 1.25- or 1.4-litre naturally-aspirated MPI petrol engines, a 1.0-litre 120PS T-GDI engine, or an efficient 1.6-litre diesel engine. The car’s low centre of gravity and specially tuned steering and suspension offer an exciting drive, responsive handling, and a stable ride.
The All-New Stonic will come with Kia's unique 7-year/100,000-mile warranty.
The cabin's design reflects features from the exterior, with straight lines, smooth surfaces, and the potential for personalisation with different colour packs from which to choose. The comfortable cabin contains class-leading shoulder room and ample legroom and headroom, as well as a highly practical 352-litre boot with a two-step boot floor.
Inside, the Stonic’s technology includes a ‘floating’ HMI (human-machine interface), heated front seats, keyless entry, and smartphone connectivity and infotainment (Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ as standard) to enhance safety, comfort and convenience.
