Kia Stonic and Picanto special editions announced

Picanto Wave and Stonic Mixx add variety to Kia's model range

Special edition versions of the Kia Picanto city car and Kia Stonic crossover have been announced, starting at £11,895 and £18,200 respectively.

The Picanto Wave is based on Kia's popular rival to the Hyundai i10, Volkswagen up!, Peugeot 107 and Ford Ka, and is powered by a 66bhp 1.0-litre petrol engine. Key features are a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a reversing camera. There's a wireless phone charger too.

On the outside, the Picanto Wave is distinguished by special Celestial Blue premium paint, set off by 15-inch alloy wheels and tinted rear windows. Inside, blue denim-style cloth meets faux leather for the upholstery, and white accents enliven the air vents, lower centre console and door armrest. Claimed to return up to 49.6mpg, the five-speed manual Picanto Wave costs £11,895.

Kia Stonic Mixx

No less distinctive, the Stonic Mixx brings a fresh look to Kia's rival for the Nissan Juke, Peugeot 2008, Vauxhall Mokka X and Hyundai Kona. The crossover SUV is powered by a turbocharged 118bhp 1.0-litre engine and is offered with a six-speed manual gearbox or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The Stonic Mixx gets the same infotainment setup as the Picanto Wave.

'Clear white' paintwork contrasts with an orange roof, 17-inch alloy wheels and privacy glass to give the special edition of the Stonic a look all of its own. Inside, black cloth and grey faux-leather upholstery is adorned by orange accents to reflect the car's exterior, with matching trim for the lower centre console and infotainment display surround.

The six-speed manual Stonic Mixx costs £18,200 and is claimed to return up to 46.3mpg. The seven-speed automatic costs £19,200 and offers the same fuel economy. All Kias sold in the UK have a seven-year/100,000-mile warranty.
