“The Kia Stonic is competent rather than compelling and it’s hard to justify paying the extra over the Kia Rio on which it’s based”

    Very good so far. Reliable and good fuel consumption. Interior quality is not premium but doesn't feel too bad either if you go for the better trim level (you have heated leather seats/steering wheel/gear changer, you have Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, a 7-inch touchscreen and all kinds of security and safety features). Doesn't feel like a crossover or anything other than a hatchback, but if you want something very reliable and on the cheaper side, while also having a decent ground clearance, and packed with goodies, you won't find anything better.
