Default Stonic crossover



The Stonic could debut in Frankfurt.
Kia's crossover offensive is set to continue with a brand-new model named Stonic. The soft-roader could make its global debut this fall at the Frankfurt Auto Show.
The South Korean company explains the Stonic name is a combination of the words "speedy" and "tonic." The teaser sketches hints at a bolder evolution of Kia's design language characterized by thin angular headlights, sculpted bumpers, and pronounced haunches. However, keep in mind sketches can be spectacularly misleading.
The cabin features a clean, tech-oriented design. The dashboard is dominated by a large color touch screen underlined by a piece of U-shaped trim. All of the buttons typically scattered across the cabin are grouped in a cluster on the center console, which gives the rest of the cabin an uncluttered look.
Kia isn't ready to divulge what lies under the sheet metal. British magazine Autocar reports the Stonic is closely related to the funky-looking Hyundai Kona that will debut next week, meaning it will come standard with front-wheel drive, a four-cylinder engine, and an automatic transmission.


We'll bring you more details about the Kia Stonic in the coming weeks. When it lands, it will slot below the Niro as the company's smallest and most affordable crossover. Its main rivals will include the Nissan Juke -- which is allegedly getting axed in the United States -- and the Toyota C-HR.

2018 Kia Stonic Mini Crossover Gets An Early Reveal





Hereís our first look in and around Kiaís brand-new Stonic subcompact crossover that follows barely a week after the presentation of Hyundaiís Kona.

Despite the Korean groupís efforts to give each model a distinct character on the outside, especially up front where each car incorporates their respective brandís styling features, you can tell that the Hyundai Kona and Kia Stonic are related.

They have a similar footprint and silhouette with both companies offering customization options such as two-tone schemes with different color roofs, with Kia going a step further by adding the exterior mirror caps as well.

From the single image we have of the Stonicís cabin, the interiors seem to be a bit more differentiated, with each car getting a different dashboard and trims. Again, thereís a splash of color in the Kia with orange accents around the center consoles.

We should have official details soon on the Stonic, but expect similar dimensions to the Kona thatís 4,165mm (164 in.) long, 1,800mm (70.9 in) wide and 1,550mm (61 in.) tall, with a 2,600mm (102.4 in.) wheelbase.

Powertrains will most likely be common too, with Hyundai having already announced the availability of an optional all-wheel drive system, along with several engines, including a 147hp (1459PS) 2.0-liter and a 175hp (177PS) 1.6-liter turbo. Markets outside North America will get a 1.0-liter T-GDI turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine and 1.6 diesel units, while Hyundai also announced a pure-electric version too.

The new Stonic will have its global motor show premiere in Frankfurt this September.

New Stonic Sub-Compact SUV Is The Most Customizable Kia Ever





If you not really feeling the funky styling of the Hyundai Kona, then you can always go for its cousin, the Kia Stonic, and its more understated design.

It's shown publicly for the first time in Frankfurt, almost three months after its online presentation, and it will go on sale across Europe later in the fall, with pricing to be announced.

The new Kia Stonic can be had in up to 20 two-tone color combinations, with a choice of five distinctive roof finishes, and plenty of personalization inside, and this makes it the brand's most customizable model ever.

Customers will also get to choose from a range of lightweight petrol and diesel engines, each one paired with a manual gearbox. Once they finish configuring their version of the SUV, they will get to enjoy the steering and suspension, which are said to have been specially tuned for the European market.

As expected, the small SUV gets a generous range of equipment, depending on the specification, and the infotainment system, which is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, comes at no extra cost.

Driver assistance systems are also be part of the offerings, with the list counting the usual amenities, from the Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Recognition, to the Lane Departure Warning.
