Ownership cost

What used Kia Stonic estate will I get for my budget?

Prices for a Kia Stonic at the time of writing start at £10,000 for a 2017 example that's covered 30,000 miles or less. You'll need to spend around £1500 more to get a similar age and mileage diesel Stonic because there are fewer of them. 

A Stonic with the latest mild-hybrid engine will set you back at least £18,000, which is still a useful £3000 saving over its list price.

How much does it cost to run a Kia Stonic estate?

MPG

A Stonic won’t be quite as economical as its main rival, the Seat Arona, but it will be competitive with the class.

The 1.4-litre petrol has a combined figure of 45.6mpg, but the more powerful turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol is slightly more efficient at 56.5mpg. If you want maximum economy, go for the 1.6-litre diesel, which has an economy figure of 67.3mpg.

Later 99bhp 1.0 and mild-hybrid 118bhp engines both manage 49.6mpg under the latest WLTP test regime.

Car tax (VED)

Most Stonics are subject to the standard flat-rate annual car tax (VED) fee introduced since April 2017. The only exception being the 48v mild-hybrid version that arrived in late 2020 because it is classed as an alternative fuel vehicle and gets a £10 discount.

Servicing intervals

Petrol Stonics will need servicing every 10,000 miles whereas cars with a diesel engine need maintenance every 20,000 miles. Kia servicing isn’t generally that expensive compared with rivals, plus there are the usual sorts of service plans available that cover maintenance over a three, or five-year period. You can even take out finance if money is tight by paying a quarter of the total bill upfront and spreading the remaining amount over a three month repayment period.
