Kia Stonic made its Indian debut at the 2018 Auto Expo. Images have been revealed of the latest subcompact crossover from Kia, the Stonic. Though, the car closely resembles to its sibling, the Hyundai Kona. The Stonic is slightly longer than Rio with a length of 4,140mm, 70mm taller and rides 42mm higher from the ground to give it a clear SUV stance.

Kia Stonic is based on the latest Rio supermini and is powered by high-efficiency, high-technology petrol and diesel powertrains from Rio and the cee'd family. Designed in Europe at the company's Frankfurt studios, the input given by the main design centre at Namyang in Korea. The model gets a muscular hood with a 'tiger nose' grille that are edged by sleek-angular headlamps along with daytime running LED lights housed in it. The side profile gets a shoulder line inspired from the larger SUVs from Kia’s stable. The car gets a sporty look due to its swooping roofline with roof-rails, flared wheel arches with plastic cladding and large alloy wheels. Inside, the car would be offered with upmarket material.

In the international market, Kia Stonic is offered in a range of engine options - 1.0-litre three-cylinder, 1.25-litre and 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engines, and a 1.4-litre diesel for higher-end cars will be offered, shared from the Rio. While at the later stages, we can also expect that Kia could offer plug-in hybrid powered model with the standard petrol.

With an estimated capacity of 3 lakh units annually, the production of the model is likely to begin from 2019.
