All-New Vehicle in KIA's Future?

*Photo from

Attention St. Louis drivers! The KIA Stonic has been spotted. The vehicle has not been officially confirmed, but KIA recently trademarked the name. However, the photographs confirm KIA is working on a subcompact crossover.

We may not know much about this all-new KIA vehicle, but it is expected that the KIA Stonic will debut some sort of turbo 4-cylinder engine and standard front wheel drive with optional four-wheel drive. From the photographs, it looks like the RIO but will be lifted with more body cladding, ground clearance and roof rails. The Stonic is also expected to be available with the latest safety and driver assistance technology.

It is rumored to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. We will keep you updated on the progress of the Stonic but in the meantime, stop by Jim Butler KIA and shop our available inventory!

The 2017 KIA Niro is the first of its kind!

“It’s rare that we come across a new car that hits all the right notes. So it’s hard to restrain our enthusiasm for the new Kia Niro, a small hybrid crossover.”

The 2017 KIA Niro is the first of its kind; a new approach to what a hybrid crossover can be. Unlike other hybrid vehicles you will NOT have to compromise! It is designed to give St. Louis drivers both benefits of a crossover and hybrid vehicle. It comes with a highly responsive, smooth-shifting dual-clutch automatic transmission and achieves an EPA-estimated 50mpg combine with a near 600-mile range. The Niro also offers more interior volume room than any other hybrid.

The KIA Niro has recently started arriving in St. Louis! Come to Jim Butler KIA to experience pure fun behind the wheel of the KIA Niro!
