We have known that Kia and Hyundai are working on new B-segment crossovers, but now Kia has registered the name Stonic, which looks likely to be used for its contender.

The new model is likely to be shown for the first time at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September and images we have seen show similar styling to the new Rio, making it something of a Rio crossover to take on Volkswagen’s upcoming T-Roc.

It is unknown whether it will be front or all-wheel drive but sources tell us Kia wants to take on the Nissan Juke, so all-wheel drive is a possibility. – BD Motor News
