The Stonic is a subcompact cross-over sport utility vehicle manufactured by Kia motors since 2017. Regardless of which size engine or transmission is chosen, the Stonic is only available in front-wheel drive.
This model is closely related to the Hyundai Kona and is based on the same platform as the Kia Rio supermini.
The first unveiling of the Stonic took place at the German International Motor Show on 20th June 2017, then later debuted at the South Koran show on 13th July 2013. Where it’s known as the Stonic in most markets, the name was changed to KX1 in China.
The Stonic is the smallest of all the Kia’s in their lineup, with the larger models including Niro, Sportage and Sorento. There are four engine variants available, turbocharged 1-litre 3-cylinder engine, 1.2-liter 4-cylinder, 1.4-litre 4-cylinder and 1.6-liter 4-cylinder turbodiesel.
Where the vehicle performs well for its intended use, there are other vehicles in the same category that outperform it such as the Nissan Juke and Skoda Kamiq, for this reason, Kia experienced slow sales and ultimately made the decision to discontinue production in South Korea in September 2020 and moved assembly to Pakistan with a view to selling locally in 2021.
Without the safety package, the overall safety rating is not great with just 3 out of 5 stars, but with the addition of the safety pack, the score rises to five out of five. The Stonic has won a few awards, including the IF Product design award in the ‘transportation design’ category, and the Red Dot award in the car design category.
