Kia's first compact SUV, the Stonic, will go on sale in Q3 2017.
The new Rio-based model is key for the manufacturer to compete in the growing B-segment – one which is expected to account for one in 10 new cars sold in Europe by 2020.
A choice of 20 colour configurations make the Stonic the most customisable Kia to date.
It will be available with a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.6-litre diesel, alongside a 1.25-litre and 1.4-litre petrol.
Kia says the car’s steering and suspension have been tuned for a more engaging drive, while its compact dimensions belie a spacious interior.
Specification will include keyless entry, heated seats and a range of safety tech such as autonomous braking.
