KIA registered the appellation Stonic, what your new crossover?


Mule testing of the variant Hyundai.

As many brands, KIA is expanding its range to forced marches. Following the presentation in Detroit of the new Stinger, it will arrive the turn of the third generation of the cee’d, although the next novelty will be a new crossover from B-segment. Model as the cee’d will share platform and engines with a similar model with the emblems of Hyundai and to which we have already seen on several occasions.

The development of this new crossover is already in its final stages, so we expect to see the presentation of the first of them already this year. At the moment it is unknown to both the release date as the order of arrival. It is believed that it will be revealed the variant Hyundai in the first place, but this is at the moment is only a conjecture based on the sighting of the mules of tests.

In terms of its name, KIA precisely recorded the name Stonic recently, so that this name is a great candidate to baptize the future urban crossover. A word that sounds fresh and modern, ideal for the spirit of the model. Although we really can’t secure it.


Up to now we have been able to see these mules on several occasions.

For the moment, the brand just confirmed that the model will arrive and that will have some inspiration of the Provo Concept, a prototype of 2013. This will be the response of the Korean company to the buoyant segment models B-SUV, where we met the Mazda CX-3 or the Peugeot 2008, among others.

Will be available in very different markets, such as Europe or the united States.

For the moment, there are no more details, neither of the variant Hyundai or own KIA, just what we have been able to analyze in the spy photos of the mules testing of the model, which in the case of the Hyundai already beginning to show their first features, as the curious design of double optic front, separating them into two different groups.
