The local crossover segment is about to get a new challenger yet again as Kia Philippines brings in the Stonic. This Korean crossover will go head-to-head with the likes of the Nissan Juke, Ford EcoSport, Mazda CX-3, among others. While the official launch is yet to happen in the coming weeks, Kia PH has already revealed the specs, pricing, and variants of the Stonic.

The 2021 Kia Stonic will be available in three variants with a starting price of Php 735,000. All variants are powered by a 1.4-liter gasoline engine that can be mated to either a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. Speaking of which, the 1.4-liter engine delivers 94 hp when it’s connected to the five-speed manual transmission. On the other hand, it puts out 99 hp when it’s mated to the six-speed automatic gearbox.

The Kia Stonic was first revealed in 2017, and it was designed in Europe taking some inspiration from the Kia Provo concept that was introduced in 2013. This crossover was inspired by Kia’s chief designer Peter Schreyer’s European Design Language. It comes with the brand’s signature Tiger Nose grille along with sharp-looking headlights, LED daytime running lights, and a large bumper.

Turning at the side, you can see the Stonic’s sleek roofline that’s highlighted by lively hues. The top-spec EX variant comes with a two-tone color option, making it stand out and more vibrant from the rest of the Stonic model lineup.

Meanwhile, the rear is fitted with distinctive taillights, giving the vehicle its unique look during nighttime.

Inside, the 2021 Stonic is equipped with an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen that’s integrated with Apple CarPlay and Andriod Auto compatibility. Aside from that, the local-spec Stonic gets a number of safety features that will give you peace of mind while you’re on the road.

The host of safety features includes Reverse Parking Sensors, Hill Start Assist, and Electronic Stability Control all available in the EX grade, which ensure that you and your vehicle are always out of danger.
