The top of the range K4 model (from €24,599) has the 120 PS 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine and equipment includes Smart Key, metal pedals, blind spot detector, and dual auto air con.

All K3 and K4 models come with the option of two tone roof and interior trim personalisation.

James Brooks, Managing Director of Kia Motors Ireland, said: “The Stonic will be an important conquest model for Kia in one of the newest and fastest-growing vehicle segments. In Ireland, the B-SUV segment is expected to grow by 100% in the next two years as demand for traditional B and C segment cars declines. We expect Stonic to become an extremely important part of our product mix here in Ireland and become as just as successful as our flagship Sportage and cee’d models.”
