Review

The Kia Stonic handles tidily, is well equipped and gets a great warranty, but there are plenty of other areas where it doesn’t shine. Many other small SUVs offer more space in the rear seats and in the boot, and are more refined, too.

get the best price

Connect Trim builds on the entry-level 2 trim by adding 17in alloy wheels, two-tone paint, built-in sat-nav, privacy glass, keyless entry/start, climate control, forward collision-avoidance assistance, automatic front windscreen wipers and a reversing camera.

This 1.0-litre petrol is the pick of the range, with mild-hybrid assistance that makes it ideal for sauntering about town or getting up to speed on motorways.
