Kia Stonic 1.6 CRDI Interior
With a targa-style roof and that SUV height you’ll get a lovely feeling of spaciousness inside the Stonic. Kia driver controls have come a long way in the past few years and the Stonic is another step in that evolution. There’s no room for poor interiors so the step up to compete with the like of Nissan is necessary in this segment. A good feel and sensible layout exists – satisfying to use and suits the look of the car.

The 108bhp diesel engine in the Stonic is a perfect match for this fun-size SUV. It offers enough grunt to compete on the open road and delivers a really high MPG and low emission so you can feel good on those long journeys. Learning from their production of some more sporty models Kia has produced a tidy suspension setup that will let the driver in you forget that you’re in a high-sided SUV, the handling feels more like a smaller, agile car.
