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!
