Kia’s hot new Stonic and Picanto models

January 4, 2019

Kia is turning up the temperature this January with a pair of hot new special editions to rid buyers of the new year blues. Offering great value for money with a high level of standard specification, the Stonic Mixx and Picanto Wave models are available to order now from Kia showrooms.

Kia’s popular Stonic range has been widened with a bright new highly-specified special edition model – the Stonic Mixx. Powered by a 1.0-litre T-GDi engine, developing 118bhp at 6,000rpm and 171Nm of torque between 1,500 and 4,000rpm, the Stonic Mixx is finished in a particularly eye-catching combination of Clear White paintwork with an orange roof. Inside, unique black cloth and grey faux leather upholstery with orange accents is combined with a lower centre console and display screen surround finished in orange trim.

Standard equipment on the Stonic Mixx includes 17-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, front and rear electric windows, privacy glass for the rear windows and tailgate, a reversing camera system with dynamic guidelines, a D-cut perforated leather steering wheel, satin chrome interior door handles and a six-speaker audio system with 7.0-inch touchscreen display with DAB radio, RDS, MP3 compatibility and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Bi-function projection headlights with static bending and LED daytime running lights deliver a stylish look, along with LED rear combination lights.

The Stonic Mixx costs £18,200 when mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, with the seven-speed dual-clutch auto transmission priced at £19,200. The combined fuel economy figure for both the manual and DCT automatic is 46.3mpg (WLTP), while emitting 130g/km of CO2 for the manual version and 120g/km with the DCT automatic transmission (NEDC 2.0). Acceleration to 60mph is achieved in 9.9 seconds for the manual and 10.2 seconds for the DCT automatic, with a top speed of 114 and 115mph, respectively.

Inspired by sunny beaches and blue skies, a hot new Picanto special edition is now on sale called the Picanto Wave. Powered by a 1.0-litre petrol engine, developing 66bhp at 5,500rpm and 96Nm torque at 3,500rpm, the Picanto Wave is finished in Celestial Blue premium paintwork with blue Denim-style cloth and faux leather upholstery.

Standard equipment includes 15-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, front and rear electric windows, privacy glass for the rear windows and tailgate, a reversing camera system with dynamic guidelines, a six-speaker audio system with 7.0-inch touchscreen display with RDS and DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with voice control and a wireless mobile phone charger. In addition, there are white accents to the lower centre console trim, air vents and door armrest, together with satin chrome interior door handles and a centre console that features a storage box and sliding armrest.

The Picanto Wave costs £11,895 and has a five-speed manual transmission. Its combined fuel economy is 49.6mpg (WLTP) with CO2 emissions of 115g/km (NEDC 2.0). Acceleration to 60mph is achieved in 13.8 seconds, with a top speed of 100mph.

In keeping with every Kia, the new special editions models come with an industry leading seven-year or 100,000-mile warranty, subject to certain wear and tear conditions. The warranty is fully transferable should the car be sold before the time or mileage limits have been reached.
