What is it?
The Kia Stonic is the brand’s first small SUV, entering UK’s the fastest-growing car market.

Key features
High-riding stance, new-tech petrol engine, strong connectivity and safety package

Our view
Kia’s first entry into the booming small SUV market does enough to make it a contender against an ever-increasing list of rivals. Based on the Rio supermini, it offers the more muscular visuals and high-riding stance that B SUV buyers demand, while being an easy car to drive and to live with – especially if one chooses the impressive 1-litre petrol engine.

Rear-seat space is cosy, the boot more so, while the car’s road holding and handling are competent rather than impressive. But a reasonable specification and strong warranty add to the Stonic’s appeal.
