Kia ushered in the new year by launching two new special-edition models for its UK showrooms – the Stonic Mixx and Picanto Wave.
The former of the two brings a white base paint colour to the Stonic crossover, with a contrasting orange roof to stand out from the rest of the range. Other features include 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights and rear privacy glass.
Inside the Stonic Mixx, black cloth and grey faux leather upholstery is included, complete with orange trim accents to match the roof.
As for luxuries, there’s a reversing camera and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system thrown in – the latter boasting support for DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity, while also offering Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities.
Powering the Stonic Mixx is a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine paired with either a six-speed manual gearbox or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Pricing starts at £18,200.
As for the Picanto Wave, Kia says this version of the popular supermini has been ‘inspired by sunny beaches and blue skies’ – meaning it’s painted in a blue hue, with matching denim-style upholstery.
Standard equipment on the Wave includes 15-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, a reversing camera and the same infotainment system as the Stonic, plus support for wireless phone charging.
Powered by a 1.0-litre petrol engine mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, the Picanto Wave is available from £11,895. Both models are now on sale in Kia dealerships around the country.
