Kia confirms Stonic name for their new crossover

Kia confirms that its new B-segment crossover will be named “Stonic”.

The company describes it as an eye-catching and confident compact crossover with true European design flair, inspired by the form and function of larger Kia SUVs.

A sweeping roofline and uniquely designed roof rack add a sporty look to the vehicle. The tail lamp graphics amplify its young and futuristic appearance, says Kia.

The car blends sharp horizontal feature lines with softer sculpted surfaces and brings compact dimensions and a low centre of gravity to the class.

The European-designed cabin echoes the appearance of the exterior, with straight lines, smooth surfaces and geometric design forms.

The Stonic’s interior places technology and ergonomics at its heart, with smart packaging maximising space for all occupants, and a “floating” human-machine interface seamlessly blending smartphone access with the car’s many functions.

On sale in the second half of 2017, the Stonic will be the most customisable Kia yet, inside and out, Kia says. – BD Motor News
