The Kia Stonic gets its name from the combination of the words “stylish” and “iconic” and was first unveiled at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt back in June of 2017. It’s sold in markets across Asia and Europe, and in China it is badged as the Kia KX1. It is still in its first generation, but it received its mid-generation facelift in 2020.

In the same crossover segment one can find the Ford Puma, Nissan Juke, and Renault Captur, all of which feature a unique and edgy design, just like that of the Kia Stonic exterior. These kinds of fun, “creative” SUVs are popular among younger city-dwelling drivers who want a good mix of utility and style.

For powertrains, Kia offers drivers 4 main options, from a 1-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder engine, up to a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine, with a 1.2-liter and 1.4-liter gasoline engine in between. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual, a 6-speed manual or automatic, a CVT, and a 7-speed DCT option.

The interior of the Kia Stonic is clean, straightforward and practical, not unlike you’d expect to find in a decent Toyota or Nissan. It also has very comfortable seats, an 8-inch infotainment screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, USB connectors, cruise control, rear parking sensors and more useful features.

Those concerned with safety should opt for the higher trim levels that pack in more safety options. With standard gear, the Kia Stonic only scored a 3-star rating on its Euro NCAP safety testing, but that was bumped up to a 5-star rating for models equipped with the optional safety gear.

While people generally love the styling and features in the Kia Stonic, the main criticism of it is with the lack of space in the rear seating area. It’s a bit of a squeeze for taller passengers, or for three adults sitting across.
