Kia’s new compact SUV unveiled
The new Kia compact crossover/SUV was officially unveiled in Europe overnight, at this stage though there is no confirmation of the model coming to Australia.
Kia say the Stonic is an eye-catching compact crossover.
Set to be offered in Europe with a choice of petrol and diesel engines, including Kia’s 1.0 litre turbo-petrol, a 1.6 turbo-diesel and 1.25 and 1.4 litre petrol.
While a safety pack that includes Autonomous Emergency Braking is being tipped to be optional, or available on upper-spec variants.
Michael Cole is the boss of Kia in Europe, he says the Stonic has been worth the wait.
“The Kia Stonic will be one of the most compelling new cars in this rapidly-expanding class, backed by Kia’s unique warranty, and the brand’s reputation for reliability, quality and contemporary design.
“As the segment expands, the Stonic looks set to become one of our best-selling cars.”
