Kia Stonic Australia, Review, Colours, For Sale, Models & Interior

Kia’ Stonic is the Korean brand’s light SUV follow-up to its well-received Seltos small SUV. While it had been on sale in international markets for quite some time before its Australian launch, the Stonic still launched in 2021 to some fanfare as a well-specified alternative to an expanding crop of light SUV challengers. 

Taking the fight to the Hyundai Venue, Mazda CX-3, Toyota Yaris Cross, and MG ZS, the Stonic has the same underpinnings, interior fittings, and drivetrain options as the Kia Rio hatchback (complete with its flaws), as well as a contemporary design which is quite unique from its larger Seltos sibling. As always, the Stonic carries Kia’s generous ownership promise. 

The Stonic’s line-up currently kicks off at $21,490 for the Stonic S and reaches to $29,990 for the Stonic GT Line (two-Tone)

Kia Stonic Colours

There are seven colours on offer with Clear White as standard, and the premium hues being Silky Silver, Perennial Grey, Aurora Black, Signal Red, Mighty Yellow, Sporty Blue.

The GT-Line is available in four two-tone colours, but if you go for this you’ll have to go without the sunroof, too.

  • Clear White
  • Perennial Grey
  • Aurora Black Pearl
  • Signal Red
  • Sporty Blue
  • Mighty Yellow
