Ever dreamt of a car that is sporty, speedy, and at the same city ready? Well, you can stop daydreaming now because Kia Stonic is here. Interestingly the name is derived from the words “speedy” and “tonic” making it “Stonic”. The Kia Stonic is designed for the young at heart, the trendsetters, the bold, the free, and the one who voices individual expression openly. This Kia car definitely lives up to that claim once you get in the driving seat.
The Kia Stonic is a subcompact crossover SUV, manufactured by the South Korean automobile giant Kia Motors. It was first launched in Pakistan in 2021 and since has gained much popularity among car enthusiasts.
It is one of the smallest Kia crossovers and boasts a strong sporty look with a bright colorful lineup. This drive is ideal for both inter and intra-city travels and will make your city drive a stylish one. It comes in two trims, Stonic EX and Stonic EX+ with all the modern tech features that you can expect from an SUV crossover.
The sleek and bold design of the Kia Stonic speaks for itself. The curves in the bodywork make it stand apart from its competitors and it's not just the looks but the versatile features it comes with. Flaunting the signature “tiger nose grille” in matte black, the Kia Stonic exterior is strikingly electrifying and is the perfect lifestyle upgrade that you have been looking for.
The front sports LED daytime running lights with front and rear fog lights. The outside mirrors are electrically adjustable, retractable, and heated with side repeater lamps. The muscular bumper also sports bi-function projection halogen headlamps with static bending lights in Stonic EX while Stonic EX+ has LED projection headlamps.
The rear of Kia Stonic is as spectacular as its front with three-dimensional combination lamps and a steep rear window. The high-mounted brake light is caped with a stylish spoiler. The sunroof and roof rack are present in Kia Stonic EX+ but Kia Stonic does not feature these specs.
The build of the Kia Stonic is aerodynamic, creating a direct airflow towards the engine and wheel wells. This allows Kia Stonic to maintain a stable drive at high speeds. The wheels are adorned with 16- inch alloy rims in Kia Stonic EX+ and 15-inch alloy rims in Kia Stonic EX.
The interior of Kia Stonic is carefully designed to make it look the best from all angles.

The seating capacity is up to 5 persons with a 60:40 split. The driver seat is height adjustable and comes with a tilt and telescopic steering wheel. The steering wheel has audio call, voice recognition, and MID controls to keep you connected on the go. The smart key and push start feature is only available in Kia Stonic EX+ while Kia Stonic EX comes with a keyless entry.
Kia Stonic EX sports a black single-tone interior while Stonic EX+ comes with a grey two-tone yellow package. The inside handles have a satin chrome finish with high-grade fabric in Stonic EX and artificial leather in Stonic EX+. The high gloss center fascia features a charging port along with the infotainment system and 6 speaker sound system that will keep you all jazzed up no matter where you drive.
Kia Stonic is also bedecked with features like luggage board, console box, vanity mirror, sunglass case, back seat pocket, cup holders with overhead console lamps, luggage lamp, and room lamp. The electrochromic rearview mirror in Kia Stonic EX+ maintains visibility under high beam lightening.
Both the Kia Stonic EX and EX+ come with 1.4L MPI (Multiple Point Injection) engines with a 6- speed automatic transmission. Both trims are front-wheel drives with a maximum output of 100/6000 ps/rpm and a maximum torque of 13.6/4000 kgm/rpm.
The 1368cc engine generates 99hp and gives a fuel mileage of 12-16 km/L. The speedy Stonic can speed up to 220 Km/hr making you leave behind the world in a matter of minutes.
The Kia Stonic is engineered for you to drive with peace and comes with a long list of safety features. Both trims have Vehicle Stability Management System, Anti-lock Braking System, Hill-Start Assist Control, automatic immobilizer, and ISO Fix Child Anchors. While Kia Stonic EX+ also has forward and reverse park assist sensors, cruise control, and speed limit assist.
Airbags are present in the driver, passenger, front thorax and pelvis, and curtain spaces to provide full safety coverage in case of any collision or accident. All these features make your driving experience all the more safe and fun with improved vehicle handling on any road you may tread down.
With the traction control system, your drive in Kia Stonic will be a smooth one regardless of bumps or steep turns. The tire pressure monitoring system alerts you whenever the tires have low air pressure giving you a heads-up to check before you drive off. The D-cut steering wheel gives a strong grip for you to experience a more comfortable drive.
