The Kia Stonic is the compact crossover cousin of the well-regarded Rio hatchback. This easy to drive, practical and smart-looking mini-SUV comes well-equipped – and boasts an impressive seven-year warranty too.
An assertive stance and attractive, lightweight 17-inch alloy wheels that are fitted as standard are just two reasons why the Stonic catches the eye. The vehicle’s five-door body ensures that access to the rear passenger compartment is quick and simple, too. While there’s room for five adults inside, this cute crossover is especially suited to conveying a young family of five. An array of stowage spaces are featured throughout the cabin, including generously proportioned front door pockets, a centre console-based compartment and various cup-holders. With split-folding rear seats reclined, a 352-litre boot space quickly yields 1,155 litres of luggage capacity.
Models fitted with a 1.4-litre 98bhp petrol engine – which is installed as standard – manage up to 49.6mpg, while producing a 125g/km CO2 emission figure. Optimal fuel efficiency is delivered by a 1.6-litre 108bhp diesel unit, which returns as much as 67.3mpg and produces emissions as low as 109g/km.
Audio entertainment is provided by a six-speaker stereo system, which includes an AM/FM tuner, and a DAB radio that offers an array of stations in crystal-clear sound quality. Bluetooth connectivity is a standard feature, too, making it possible to stream music from compatible devices, as well as place and receive hands-free phone calls. With an optional Advanced Driving Assistance pack fitted, the Stonic rates a maximum five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating. Standard driver aids include Electronic Stability Control and Anti-lock Braking System, which substantially reduce the risk of skidding.
