Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

You won’t be short of space in the front of the Kia Stonic – there's plenty of head and leg room, even for taller occupants. Interior width is generous for a small SUV too, so the driver and front passenger won’t be clanging elbows. 

It’s quite a comfortable place to be and you shouldn’t find yourself struggling for space. Even so, if having loads of space up front is important, the Skoda Kamiq and Volkswagen T-Roc are even larger.

While you get 60/40 split folding rear seats for those occasional trips to the tip, the Stonic does without the flexibility of sliding or reclining rear seats, which are offered by its Citroën C3 Aircross and Renault Captur rivals.

Boot space

The Stonic’s boot is nothing to get excited about. While there’s enough space for a decent weekly shop or five carry-on suitcases, having only 352 litres of storage space means it has one of the smallest boots in the class. 

That becomes more apparent when you put the Stonic up against its rivals, with the Ford Puma swallowing six of the same sized suitcases, and the Seat Arona and Skoda Kamiq managing seven.
