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

While this is the entry-level model, it still comes with plenty of equipment. This includes 17in alloys, power-folding door mirrors, automatic lights and wipers, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearknob, air conditioning, front and rear electric windows, cruise control and rear parking sensors. It also includes a 7.0in infotainment screen with a DAB radio, Bluetooth and smartphone mirroring. You'll need to pay extra for automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assistance, though.
