Kia announces Stonic

7 June 2017 - Kia's new B-segment crossover will be named 'Stonic'. It is a confident compact crossover with true European design flair, the Stonic is inspired by the form and function of larger Kia SUVs. On sale in the second half of 2017, the Stonic will be the most customisable Kia ever, inside and out.

The name 'Stonic' combines 'Speedy' and 'Tonic', which refers to the first and last note in the musical scale. Thus, Stonic suggests that the vehicle is agile and offers something new and fresh in the compact SUV segment.

A sweeping roofline and uniquely designed roof rack add a sporty look to the vehicle. The unique tail lamp graphics amplify Stonic's young and futuristic appearance. The car blends sharp horizontal feature lines with softer sculpted surfaces, and brings compact dimensions and a low centre of gravity to the class.

The European-designed cabin echoes the appearance of the exterior, with straight lines, smooth surfaces and geometric design forms. The Stonic's interior places technology and ergonomics at its heart, with smart packaging maximising space for all occupants, and a floating HMI (human-machine interface) seamlessly blending smartphone access with the car's many functions.
