Kia Stonic generations

The Kia Stonic is a subcompact front-wheel drive 5-door SUV produced by the South Korean automaker Kia Motors since 2017. Its name consists of two words: "fast" and "tonic". The Stonic is a smaller sibling of the Hyundai Kona SUV. The SUV has "passenger" proportions and looks more like a "raised" hatchback than a full-fledged SUV. Despite its compact dimensions, the interior offers sufficient space for the driver and passengers. The compact Kia Stonic has some of the best head and shoulder room in the segment, and an impressive leg and head room.

The Kia Stonic is a typical youth car, perfectly fitting into the "golden" standards of Israel.

A small urban crossover, whose name comes from the words "quick" and "tonic", has a bright exterior, decent basic equipment, and a high level of driving comfort under any road conditions. The steering and suspension ensure instant reactions to steering actions and vehicle stability while in motion. Modern technologies focus on ensuring safety, comfort, and ease of use. But most importantly, the Kia Stonic saves your family budget, being quite affordable.

In Israel, the Kia Stonic is popular. Introduced in 2017, the car reached 8th place within the brand in terms of sales in 2018, climbed to 4th in 2019, maintaining that position in 2020/2021. This compact crossover, 4.1 m in length and with a 2.5 m wheelbase, has "passenger car" proportions and looks more like a "raised" hatchback.

Despite its compact dimensions, the cabin provides passengers with ample head and shoulder room and an impressive legroom. In these aspects, the Kia Stonic is one of the best in its segment. Before the 2020 facelift, the Kia Stonic in Israel was offered with a 1-liter GDI engine and a 1.4-liter MPI. Both engines are complemented by a 6-speed "robot" and front-wheel drive.

The updated Kia Stonic received a modernized multimedia system with new features and an 8-inch display (instead of 7-inch), a larger instrument panel, and new finishing options. After the facelift, the crossover became safer: the number of airbags increased to 6, and there was a significant expansion in electronic assistants. The automatic braking system now recognizes not only pedestrians but also cyclists, lane centering, and adaptive cruise control work at speeds up to 180 km/h.

The current Kia Stonic 2023 model is available in Israel in two petrol versions. The first comes with the previous 1.4-liter engine. The second, 1.0 T-GDI, is now equipped with a 1-liter "turbo-triple" paired with a 48-volt electrical add-on. In this system, the starter-generator, feeding energy to the traction battery, uses energy recuperation during braking and turns off the gasoline engine when coasting. During acceleration, the starter assists the engine to reduce fuel consumption. In combined cycle, the Kia Stonic 1.0 T-GDI consumes 5.7-6 liters per 100 km, while the Kia Stonic 1.4 MPI consumes 6.6-6.8 liters.

Buying a Kia Stonic in Israel is an opportunity to purchase a quality car at a reasonable price. This bright and dynamic crossover is an excellent choice for young, energetic Israelis aiming for self-expression.
