Local specs and pricing have been announced for the 2021 Kia Stonic SUV which arrives to take on cars like the Mazda CX-3.
At launch, Kia will offer three trim levels: S, Sport and GT-Line with prices ranging from $22,990 - $29,990 drive-away.
According to Kia, the S and Sport variants are optimised for comfort while the flagship GT-Line is tuned for a firmer, sportier ride.
S and Sport models are powered by a naturally-aspirated 1.4-litre four-cylinder producing 74kW of power and 133Nm of torque. It’s matched to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
The GT-Line uses a turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine offering 74kW and 172Nm. It’s exclusively paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
