KIA is back with a bang! This time it’s sleeker, sportier, and bolder. Yes, we are talking about none other than the newly-introduced crossover i.e., KIA Stonic.
KIA Lucky Motors has recently diversified its portfolio with the much-awaited crossover that Pakistanis have been eyeing for a while now. KIA Stonic comes with the promise of exceptional handling and outstanding performance. Interestingly, the word “Stonic” is a portmanteau of “speedy and tonic”.
Boasting its dynamic muscular appearance, KIA Stonic has all the ingredients of a head-turner. Whether it’s the three-dimensional front grille, vertical fog lamps integrated headlamps, DRLs, or one-tone body-color, every single part is destined to make a lasting impression.
However, KIA Stonic is much more than its spectacular muscles. The rear end of the car is dramatically raked. It comes with a spoiler-capped backlight window and three-dimensional graphics inside the rear combination lamps.
From the bold wheel arches, sculpted contours to the aerodynamic silver skid, this car has a truly urban outlook.
The interior is spacious and family-friendly. Perfect for relaxing and reclining. It is important to note that EX+ also comes with a sunroof which is an amazing value proposition in this price range.
Variants and Price
KIA Stonic comes in two variants i.e., EX and EX+. The ex-factory price of KIA Stonic EX is PKR 3,660,000 while Kia Stonic EX+ costs around PKR3,880,000.
The all-new KIA Stonic comes in four stunning colors which include clear white, cherry black, mercury blue, and sparkling silver.
Engine and Transmission
Both EX and EX+ have a 1400cc, 1.4 L MPI engine which produces 134 NM torque and 99 hp.
KIA Stonic has a 6-speed automatic transmission with a front-wheel drivetrain.
Both variants have five airbags, hill-start assist control, vehicle stability management, and an anti-locking braking system.
The top variant EX+ comes with additional comfort features like a smart key with push-start, forward and reverse parking assist sensors, cruise control, manual speed limit assist, and a rear-view camera.
The delivery time of KIA Stonic is three months. We are yet to see how Pakistanis will relish this new crossover experience. Undoubtedly, this car is giving tough competition to its rivals and can lure the customers away from some popular choices.
