Introduction

What Car? says...

The Kia Stonic is the South Korean car maker's take on the higher-riding small SUV style that's so irresistible to buyers who once drove handy little hatchbacks.

Following a familiar formula, the Stonic takes the bones of the Kia Rio hatchback and adds chunky wheels and tyres, a bit more height and tougher styling for a bit of SUV flavour. If you really want to jazz things up, there’s sporty GT-Line trim and the option of snazzy two-tone paint.

To find out how the Kia Stonic stacks up against those rivals in terms of the driving experience, interior quality, spaciousness and costs, keep reading this comprehensive review, which covers all that, as well as making engine and trim recommendations.

Then, once you’ve picked your ideal make and model of car, use our free What Car? New Car Buying service if you want a hassle-free way to pick up your new wheels at a great price. It's a good place to find new Kia Stonic deals.
