Review

The Kia Stonic handles tidily and is well equipped, but it could be cheaper and more practical

get the best price

Trim: 3

The safety equipment that's optional on the 2 comes as standard on the Stonic 3 and above. 3 Also adds the infotainment features we described earlier, a reversing camera, privacy glass and automatic climate-control air conditioning. 

Engine: 1.6 CRDi

The 1.6 diesel is better than the 1.4-litre petrol, and pullsmuch more eagerly once you get the revs above 1500rpm. It still doesn't exactly deliver swift acceleration, though.
