Kia Stonic is a Subcompact Crossover SUV manufactured by South Korea-based automaker Kia Motors. Stonic, one of Kia's new projects, was first introduced to the public in 2017. The car was designed by Peter Schreyer and shares features with the new generation Kia Rio in many respects. Stonic, also known as the KX1, is also the smallest of the SUV models created by the Kia brand. When we look at the exterior, we can say that the front part resembles the Rio, and the rear part is reminiscent of the Sportage model. While the body lines with very modern lines emphasize the characteristics of the car, the strong design concept of the car according to its class makes the Stonic more imposing than most SUVs. The 352-liter trunk volume of the Kia Stonic seems sufficient compared to other cars. Finally, when we look at the interior design, we see a very harmonious and practical to use cabin layout. The colour palette consisting of dark tones, on the other hand, made the look extremely stylish and aesthetic.
