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.

Building on the GT-Line trim, GT-Line S adds special 17in alloy wheels, two-tone paint with contrasting roof, smart cruise control, keyless entry/start, front parking sensors, blind-spot collision warning, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

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.
