The Parkers VerdictShould you buy a Kia Stonic?

The Kia Stonic isn’t an especially bad car – it’s just an unimpressive effort when the class it occupies has moved on so far. We can’t imagine opting for the dowdy and staid Stonic over rivals with more space, greater efficiency, and more inviting interiors.

That’s not to say there’s no place for the Stonic – its long warranty, hardwearing interior and sturdy construction mean it should be a painless ownership experience, while there are no doubt those who’ll love the way this little SUV looks – especially in sporty GT-Line trims with its two-tone roof.

Generous equipment and a low starting price also make the Stonic more attractive as a cash purchase, while its high driving position and uncomplicated dynamics mean (and we say this in as nice a way as possible) that we can imagine it being rather popular with older buyers.

We just think other rivals simply offer more bang for your buck, especially given the impressive finance offers often available that Kia rarely offers. The Parkers Award-winning Ford Puma or hugely practical Skoda Kamiq would be our pick in this sector.
