The Kia Stonic is the Korean carmaker's entry into the subcompact crossover market. It combines SUV characteristics with the compact dimensions of a subcompact hatchback. While its design language is unmistakably Kia, its more angular lines, prominent wheel arches, and black cladding give it a rugged more aggressive look. The EX variant's black contrasting roof gives it a unique appearance. Moving on to the inside, its well laid out interior would look familiar to Kia owners. At the center of the dashboard is a well-integrated infotainment touch screen flanked by vertical AC vents. Its SUV-influence is not just for aesthetics, this little crossover has a decent 185mm ground clearance. Powering the new Kia Stonic is the Korean brand's 1.4-liter Dual-CVVT gasoline mill which puts out 94hp (99hp in the A/T variants) and 132Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels either through a five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic tranny.
