The 2019 Kia Stonic is the second edition of the youngest crossover from the Korean carmaker. It is expanding very quickly, and the result of it is new vehicles we are seeing every year. Stonic joined the lineup, taking the position in the subcompact class. It is light, small SUV, perfect for cruising around the city. However, we can use it for longer journeys, since its cargo area offers enough room for storage and luggage.
Prices of the 2019 Kia Stonic are unknown at this moment. But, wide offer of engines will make difference, since buyers can opt for more powerful options. Dimensions and assist features of the Stonic SUV will make parking in tight spots easier. The appearance of the crossover is also worthy of mention, especially with a wide palette of colors it offers in the USA and Canada.
2019 Kia Stonic Specs and Performace
There are four engines for the upcoming 2019 Kia Stonic. The base models will use a 1.0-liter mated to a six-speed manual transmission. This tiny engine is pretty powerful with an output of 120 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque. It uses a turbocharger to achieve better numbers.
Less power comes from larger displacement, a 1.2-liter petrol unit. The four-cylinder mill is capable to create 85 hp and 90 pound-feet of twisting power. It also uses different drive configuration, including a five-speed manual gearbox.
This is not all since 2019 Kia Stonic will come with the even bigger engine. A 1.4 MPI powertrain add ponies and pound-feet to total output. With it, the crossover will be able to deliver 100 hp and 100 lb-ft of torque. Again, drive system brings back the manual transmission used by the base SUV.
Last, but not the least important drivetrain is diesel. It pairs a 6-speed manual transmission for 110 hp and 190 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy for this engine will get a boost for 2019 Stonic. Automatic transmission boxes and AWD are optional for the entire squad of subcompact SUV.

These vehicles are powerful and stylish as models from Ford, Toyota, Honda, but buyers can get them for less money. The new Kia Stonic will be especially interesting in the USA and Canada since buyers there love something new, but still proven.

Bigger engines will raise the price, but with base equipment, the 2019 Stonic won’t cost more than $25,000.
