Discovering the Kia Stonic (Sponsored)

Why the Kia Stonic should be on every small SUV buyer’s shortlist.

With more SUVs on the road than ever before, it takes something stylish, daring and multi-talented to really stand out.

The Kia Stonic is just that - a stylish and compact SUV that looks right at home in the city, and is perfectly capable on a country lane or motorway. That’s thanks, in part, to a trio of excellent engines, headed by Kia’s new turbocharged 1.0-litre T-GDi petrol engine. It’s smooth, quiet, and with 118bhp available, also capable and efficient.

But it’s the car’s styling that creates the first - and lasting - impression. The funky look is emphasised through a range of bright and bold colours, which on the top spec model can be paired together for a two-tone look.

Of course, it’s not style over substance. Inside, features like the heated seats and steering wheel are a godsend, especially during the winter months.

And for drivers seeking entertainment and vital information on the move, the Kia Stonic has plenty to offer. Advanced smartphone connectivity in the shape of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is fitted as standard to all models. The system allows a slimmed-down version of certain apps to be displayed on the car’s 7in touchscreen.

That means audio streaming services such as Spotify can be accessed on the move, and operated via intuitive voice control. Not only that, but Google Maps is available, allowing the driver to identify real-time traffic data for those morning commutes to work.

Owners are equally well-served when it comes to ensuring their Stonic remains on the road. All Stonics come with a seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty, which offers the same level of cover on the first day as it does on the last. That means you can be confident in the knowledge you’ll not be stung with any unexpected bills.

What’s more, every new Kia comes with 12 months of breakdown cover backed by the RAC. It covers the car throughout the UK and just register on MyKia for European cover as well.

And with a five star Euro NCAP safety rating, when fitted with Advanced Driving Assistance Pack, the Stonic has impressive credentials. Features like Driver Attention Warning, which advises the driver when to take a break, and Hill-start Assist Control really do help drivers, while Lane-Keep Assist and Blind-Spot Detection come into their own on long motorway drives.

So, whatever you want from a small SUV, the Kia Stonic fits the bill.
