If you’re young, image-conscious, single or newly married, and you’ve set aside a budget between P675,00 to P875,000 for a brand-new car, then we strongly advise you to hold off your new vehicle purchase until October 15, 2020 because that is the date when Kia Philippines will “unbox” the new and exciting 2021 Kia Stonic. We’re confident that with Kia Motors’ “Power to Surprise“, this all-new stylish, hip and trendy subcompact crossover vehicle will surely create waves in the local automotive scene and the Philippine car culture.
The new Stonic is positioned to meet the demands of the young and active who turn their dreams into reality day-by-day and know how to have fun in the process. Kia Philippines projects that the target market belongs to the wide spectrum of adventurous Filipino buyers who do not compromise design and function. With the catchphrase “Style that is Iconic”, this chic Kia crossover is for the first-time buyers and trendy car owners who want to showcase their exquisite taste in their vehicles. Pegged by Kia’s chief designer Peter Schreyer, Kia’s European Design Language is manifested in the compact features, elegant design, sharp lines and smooth surfaces of the Stonic, which harmonizes with the signature Tiger Nose Grille and the stylish and heavy-duty roof rails on the roof.
The well-positioned projector-type halogen headlamps and LED daytime running lights (DRLs), which are exclusive to the EX variant, give bright, proper illumination without distracting incoming drivers. The perfectly-sized Stonic is 4,100 mm long, 1,735 mm wide and 1,532 mm high with a 2,570 mm wheelbase to make sure that comfort can be stylish. These svelte dimensions house a multifunctional storage space with 60:40 full-fold flat rear seats. Even when the seats are in the upright position, there’s ample space behind the rear seats to load 325 liters of groceries or baggage. Meanwhile, the two-tone color option on the top-of-the-line variant is bound to express your bright and positive disposition.
As a young and aggressive individual, you know that road trips can be boring without the right sound track. The Kia Stonic is equipped to keep you entertained whether its a long wait in traffic or a long drive through winding roads. You can have an earful of lively concerts with peers and family with the Stonic’s 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which is compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Crisp clear music emanates from the six audio speakers that is strategically mounted inside the Stonic.
The Stonic is powered by a 1.4-liter dual CVVT inline 4-cylinder engine that is tuned to deliver 94 horsepower (95 PS) when paired with the 5-speed manual transmission or 99 hp (100 PS) when coupled with the 6-speed automatic. All this simply means that the Stonic was designed to produce a higher fuel efficiency rating so you can drive farther and make every liter count. Likewise, the Stonic prioritizes your safety and driving convenience with its rear parking sensor, rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, electronic stability control and hill start assist, which are all exclusive for the EX variant. Furthermore, the 185-mm ground clearance provides you with a sense of security when you have to drive on floodwaters while the smart entry and start/stop push button provides you with added convenience.
While Kia Philippines started 2020 with a network of 30 dealerships across the country, an additional 4 new dealerships started operations by the third quarter. The aggressive expansion to widen Kia’s footprint continues with four more new Kia dealer appointments in key locations that will operate within the fourth quarter.
