Shell V-Power: Fuelling your passions
Friday 9th June


What should I be paying?

Given Kia’s reputation for reliability, and that now-expected seven-year warranty, owning a Stonic should be painless. The entry-level ‘2’ spec car starts off at a reasonable £20,100, which should just undercut most of the Stonic's rivals. Go for the bells and whistles of the top spec Stonic GT-Line S and you’ll be looking at £24,150. 

If you’re looking at monthly leasing costs, the entry Stonic will cost around £250 a month, while the GT-Line S would set you back about £300 a month. This looks pretty good against the Juke and Puma in similar trims, while it’s comparable with the Arona and Captur.

The real danger for the Stonic is the realisation that you’re perhaps better off getting a Ceed Sportswagon for a couple of thousand extra that’s genuinely practical, drives better and offers a broader range of powertrain options. But sadly no yellow paint option or a contrasting roof. 

The Stonic should be fairly easy on your wallet when it comes to running costs – all the models in the range are officially rated around 50mpg, which should mean a reasonable return on fuel economy as long as you’re not wearing your heavy shoes. Kia also offers servicing packages which cover certain renewables over a period for a fixed cost – certainly worth looking into.
