UK Kia Stonic pricing announced
First details of specification and pricing in the UK for the all-new Kia Stonic have been announced.
There will be five versions at launch, based on two trim grades (‘2’ and ‘First Edition’) and three powertrains.
Kia has based its decision to offer only mid- and high-grade versions of Stonic in the UK in-line with demand from both retail and fleet customers, the company says.
The grade ‘2’ Stonic will be available with three engines, while ‘First Edition’ is being offered with the 1.0-litre T-GDi and 1.6-litre CRDi units.
Pricing will start at £16,295 for the 1.4-litre petrol grade ‘2’, rising to £20,495 for the ‘First Edition’ 1.6 CRDi diesel. All models are front wheel drive only.
Equipment includes active safety features Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), as standard. The latter is linked to Torque Vectoring, Straight Line Stability and Cornering Brake Control – each designed to keep the car on the road. In addition, all Stonic will have Hill-start Assist.
Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane Departure Warning System are standard in the ‘First Edition’ and optional on grade ‘2’.
A 7.0-inch display with a DAB radio and MP3 compatibility adorn the dashboard in grade ‘2’, while the ‘First Edition’ is upgraded with a 7.0-inch touchscreen navigation and infotainment system featuring Kia Connected Services with TomTom.
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration are standard across the range.
Stonic is based on the new Rio supermini and will be built on the same production line at Sohari in South Korea. While the Rio and Stonic both share some mechanical components, Stonic has a bespoke body and interior.
Stonic will go on sale on October 23, 2017, order books are open now.
