Kia Stonic Mixx special edition announced

Kia has added a new special edition to the Stonic range – the Stonic Mixx. Powered by a 1.0-litre T-GDi engine, developing 118PS at 6000rpm and 171Nm of torque between 1500 and 4000rpm, the Stonic Mixx is finished in an 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 Maax 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, while emitting 130 g/km of CO2 for the manual version and 120g/km with the DCT automatic transmission. Acceleration to 60mph is achieved in 9.9 seconds for the manual and 10.2 seconds for the DCT7 automatic, with a top speed of 114 and 115mph, respectively.

With the last decade in the rear-view mirror, Kia is adding a splash of colour to the winter season with new special editions of the Picanto and Stonic, both on sale from 2 January 2020. In addition, Kia is expanding the model range of its Niro PHEV by offering a new ‘2’ specification. All models are available to order now from Kia showrooms.
