It looks like Kia Philippines has a strong contender.

The 2021 Kia Stonic will be on sale in the local market this October. This Korean subcompact crossover was first introduced in 2017 so it is not relatively new to the global auto scene, but it is in the country. With that being said, let’s take a look at what the Kia Stonic has to offer for its affordable price tag.

One of the best features the Kia Stonic has to offer is its stylish look. One can say that the Stonic is the best-looking vehicle in its price range. The Kia Stonic comes with a two-tone paint scheme that instantly restrains the subcompact crossover from having a dull appeal.

In addition, the Kia Stonic comes with Kia’s signature tiger-nose grille, sharp-looking headlights with daytime running lights, and a large bumper.

Aside from the stylish exterior design, the Kia Stonic also comes with great interior features for its price. The subcompact crossover is installed with an 8-inch touchscreen that supports both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The sounds are then blasted through the Stonic’s six speakers that come as standard.
