VEHICLE buyers have developed a different taste to perfectly suit the modern palate. Kia Philippines, the official importer and distributor of Kia vehicles in the country, is introducing the all-new 2021 Kia Stonic, with a “Style that is Iconic” to tickle the tastebuds of the young and trendy crossover market.
Since this segment has also become very picky and their set of considerations goes far beyond aesthetics to ensure they get their money’s worth, the local arm of the Korean vehicle maker is giving its customers six reasons why the highly-anticipated Kia Stonic is a good pick in today’s drive.
A looker is always a keeper. First unveiled in 2017 at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany, the Kia Stonic immediately earned the attention of many—especially the millennial car buyers—with its stylish and hip design.
This crossover was inspired by Kia’s chief designer Peter Schreyer’s European Design Language and has shown more straight lines and smooth surfaces to provide owners a preview of what they would experience inside the vehicle.
These modern lines and edges complement the signature Tiger Nose Grille and the projector headlamps, flanked with the LED Daytime Running Lamps (which is exclusive to the EX variant) in the front fascia.
The sleek roofline has highlighted the lively hues, befitting the dynamic and chic persona of the vehicle. The top-tier EX variant sports a two-tone color option, making it more vibrant yet pleasing to the eyes.
The rear end exudes parallel charm, thanks to its fashionable tail lamps, making the vehicle stand out even during nighttime.
All these effects led to its host of global recognitions from prestigious organizations such as the iF Design and Red Dot Design Awards in 2018.
Built to be enjoyed. Since Kia has the Power to Surprise, their offering goes beyond being trendy.
Beating cabin fever and traffic boredom will be ensured as the forthcoming Kia Stonic is fitted with an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen unit.
