Kia Prepares New Compact SUV Called Stonic
|   Friday, July 21, 2017
Arona from Seat, T-Roc from Volkswagen and Kona from Hyundai. The market will be invaded by small SUVs, perfect for women, so here's another one. Kia Stonic is preparing to make its debut this autumn at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Fairly small for city roads, but quite large in design, these more bulky hatchbacks are more than popular nowadays.
In fact, according to Kia's official statement, 21 percent of buyers have been convinced to move to such a model, and the new Kia Stonic seems to be the newest competitor Nissan's Juke.


Built on the popular Rio platform, Kia Stonic takes full advantage of the current car market trends. The plastic plaques of the model promote, in our opinion, a more robust image, reinforced by the roof's self.
The latest incarnation of the front grille, in the form of a “tiger nose”, can be found on this model. The image is complemented by a very detailed set of headlights and the car can be ordered with a roof that opens wide, available in no less than 20 color combinations in two tones.

Prepared for sale in Europe towards the end of this year, the new Kia Stonic will have to face first-class competitors, but it shows signs of enjoying the good moments of the Korean manufacturer. For those overseas interested in this model, the manufacturer has announced that it will publish the technical specifications for the versions that will be sold in the United States as quickly as possible.

Interior space has been an important part of Kia's agenda. That's why Stonic offers space for a top-class car. Although we find in the cabin some plastic elements, it gives the feeling of well-built and sturdy overall.
The center console of the new model comes with the automaker's latest infotainment system with touch technology, even in the standard version, with Apple and Android Auto CarPlay.

The Korean manufacturer has not even forgotten the rear seat passengers, with enough space for both head and legs. Even the fifth passenger has more than enough space, due to the very flat shape of the car floor. Also in the back, we'll meet a trunk that has a capacity of 352 liters in its normal form.

The new Kia Stonic comes, at least in Europe, with four types of engines. The gasoline engines are the new 1.0 liter turbocharger variant, which delivers 116 horsepower, the 1.25-liter propeller that can also be found on the Picanto, but also the top of the range with a displacement of 1, 4 liters. Korean manufacturer fitted the model with one diesel engine too, the 1.6 liter, about which officials say that would be the least polluting.

As for latest technologies, the model is equipped with some equipment that should not be missing on any car: emergency braking system with pedestrian detection system, Emergency Warning for lane departure, warning system for the driver in case of inattention, and a blind spot detecting system.
