Kia Unveils New Mini Crossover Stonic

Kia has unveiled the all-new Stonic mini-crossover as the brand aims to rival Nissan and other SUVs as more manufacturers jump onto the bandwagon of mini-crossovers.
The Stonic – a new Nissan Juke-sized crossover – is expected to become one of the best-selling models across the globe, Auto Express writes.
It’s too soon to say whether the vehicle will make it to Iran, but several of its rivals are already in the local market.
The Stonic is set to sit beneath the Sportage and Sorento in the range, and serve as a rival for the likes of the Juke and Renault Captur, as well as the new Hyundai Kona.
In order to make the new Rio-inspired crossover stand out in this increasingly crowded marketplace, Kia promises this is its most customizable car to date.
The styling lends itself to a two-tone paint finish, and up to 20 two-tone combinations will be available, alongside five unique colors for the roof.
In terms of design, contemporary Kia cues such as the ‘tiger-nose’ grille and strong, swept headlights define the Stonic’s face, but Kia has made an effort to distance the crossover from the Rio hatchback on which it’s based.
Kia has turned to past concept cars to influence the design – the ‘targa’-style roof loop at the C-pillar is plucked from the Provo coupé concept of 2013. In the cabin things take on a much more Rio-inspired bent.
The dash is near identical, while the switchgear is carried directly over. Again, lots of customizable color schemes are promised.
