Spy pictures of the prototype of KIA for the first time appeared on the Internet. It is believed that the novelty will receive a name Stonic, and its design will be significantly different from the model of similar size KX3 sold at the moment in several countries. At the same time it is expected that the novelty will follow the lead of the new Rio, and borrow some features from the Provo concept presented in 2013.

At the present time the model is tested on the snow-covered highways of Sweden. The machine is quite good; nevertheless, it is quite difficult to see its appearance completely. Hiding camouflage does not allow seeing the details.

New model will share with the fourth generation of model Rio most of the power trains, including a 1.0-liter 3-cylinder petrol turbo engine producing 100 and 120 hp, and the 1.4-liter diesel engine, which develops 76 hp and 89hp. Remains unknown whether Kia and Hyundai plan to offer cars with naturally aspirated engine and optional all-wheel drive or it will be front-wheel drive only. Kia Stonic will debut this year, probably in September at the auto show in Frankfurt.
