Don’t Stop It Now: Kia Wants to Make a Super Stonic Out of You

Today, the compact crossover for urban driving comes a cost. Luckily for you, it’s worth its cost ‘ cause it comes to Kia. The 2018 Kia Stonic debuted for Europe aimed to rival with such successful segment players as the Honda HR-V, Toyota C-HR or Nissan Juke. Dubbed the Stonic, another subcompact crossover will reportedly cost around £14,000 making its world debut at the upcoming Frankfurt Auto Show.

Rio-based, the Stonic will be offered with a reasonable choice of engines including a 1.6-liter CO2-low diesel, a 1.25- or 1.4-liter gas engine, naturally aspirated, or a 1.0-liter turbo three-cylinder gas one good for 118 ponies. No four-wheel-drive, though. Instead of, customers will get eye-catching paint options (20 variants for two-tone body finishes and 5 ones for a targa-styled roof). In terms of exterior, the Stonic follows the branded Kia styling boasting a distinctive tiger nose grille and bright orange trim add-ons to match the appropriate color roof. In addition, the 2018 Kia Stonic packs a full list of standard tech equipment and safety technologies (such as driver attention warning or autonomous emergency braking) coming with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto normally.
