The Kia Stonic, a chic and budget-friendly crossover from the South Korean marque, holds its own in the Philippines. Despite being the little sibling to the Kia Seltos in terms of dimensions and cost, it fits in smoothly as the 11th model in the Kia fleet. Thanks to the creative prowess of Peter Schreyer, the Stonic's sleek design, imbibing Kia's signature language, bagged awards from IF Design and Red Dot Design Awards in 2018. The name "Stonic," blending "style" and "iconic," truly complements the accolades it gathered right after its market debut.
The Kia Stonic serves as a delightful entry point into Kia's crossover range, sporting a 1.4-liter gasoline engine that churns out 94-100hp and 132 Nm of torque, based on the model variant. It pairs with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Built on a unibody structure, the Stonic showcases a MacPherson Strut upfront and a torsion beam axle at the back. Its design, both inside and out, exhibits clean, smooth lines, a tribute to Schreyer's European-inspired design ethos for Kia. With standout elements like the Tiger-nose grille and its sleek profile, the Stonic is a subcompact crossover that captivates.
Launched at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Kia Stonic made an immediate impact, scooping up prestigious accolades like the IF Design award in the "Transportation Design" category and the Red Dot award for car design, both in 2018.
In October 2020, Kia Philippines launched the award-winning Stonic for the 2021 model year with an attractive early-bird offer for eager customers. Listing prices for the Stonic range from a modest P735,000 for the base LX MT model to P925,000 for the top-of-the-line EX AT model.
