If you’ve been waiting on the local launch of the Kia Stonic, you won’t have to wait much longer. The subcompact crossover is being introduced to the market in October 2020, but Kia Philippines has decided to reveal the vehicle’s official prices and variants way earlier.
The Korean car manufacturer’s upcoming crossover will be available in three variants: The Stonic LX MT, Stonic LX AT, and Stonic EX AT. All units will come equipped with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine paired with either a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Manual units will generate up to 94hp, while higher-end automatic ones produce up to 99hp.
Check out the Kia Stonic’s official Philippine prices and variants below:
2020 Kia Stonic
- Kia Stonic LX MT – P735,000
- Kia Stonic LX AT – P835,000
- Kia Stonic EX AT – P925,000
Those prices look affordable enough, but Kia Philippines is sweetening the pot by offering exclusive discounts to those who reserve a Stonic unit before October 15, 2020. All Stonic orders also come with a five-year (or 160,000km) warranty, as well as 24/7 roadside assistance for five years.
Below are the rates if you order a unit prior to the deadline:
2020 Kia Stonic (pre-launch discount)
- Kia Stonic LX MT – P675,000
- Kia Stonic LX AT – P785,000
- Kia Stonic EX AT – P875,000
Other highlights include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, the availability of features like rear parking sensors and hill start assist, as well as a top-notch design that looks like it’ll fit right in inside Metro Manila’s urban jungle.
Expect more details to become available as the Stonic moves closer toward a local launch. So, what do you think of the vehicle? Can it take on the market’s more established subcompact crossover offerings? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
