New Kia Stonic compact SUV heading for NZ

Kia’s compact SUV offering is set to extend in 2021 with the arrival of the all-new Stonic.

To be available with a choice of two turbocharged petrol engines, the Stonic will be offered from an impressive $21,990 (plus ORCs) introductory price.

Kia’s combined SUV range will grow to five with the arrival of the Stonic, with popular Seltos, Niro Hybrid / EV, Sportage and Sorento models already leading the way in the ever-busy SUV segment.

Kia is set to inject an all-new option into New Zealand’s small SUV segment with the arrival of the all-new Stonic in early 2021.

With its sleek muscular body, sporty compact styling, exceptional handling and outstanding performance, the new Kia Stonic is a small SUV created for a bigger life.

The eye-catching Kia Stonic will be offered from a low introductory price of just $21,990 including GST (plus ORCs).

“Kia has always had the ‘Power To Surprise’ and we are living up to our brand slogan as we introduce the new Stonic,” says Todd McDonald, Managing Director of Kia Motors New Zealand.

“Stonic is a vehicle that is going to surprise a lot of people, and not just because of our special introductory price. It really does bring fresh excitement to the crossover experience.”

The new Stonic follows in the tracks of the recently introduced Seltos compact SUV and Sorento large SUV in showcasing the new face of Kia. It also rounds off the SUV range in New Zealand, which also includes the Sportage and the Niro Hybrid/EV.

Mr. McDonald says the upcoming arrival of the Stonic means that Kia now offers one of the strongest vehicle line-ups in New Zealand. And each model displays its own unique character, with the Stonic now the latest to show off its hot credentials.

The new Kia Stonic will be offered with a choice of 1.4-litre naturally aspirated or 1-litre turbocharged petrol engines and a choice of 6-speed automatic or 7-speed dual-clutch transmissions.

Dealers are expected to take delivery of evaluation vehicles by the end of November, with customer deliveries starting in the New Year.
