Lucky Motors is on the verge of introducing more products in its lineup in Pakistan. After recent viral images of wrapped Peugeot 2008 surfacing the internet, we can now see the Kia Stonic wrapped in similar camouflaging livery which the company used to market various Kia vehicles in the marketing campaign captioned ‘We are Unstoppable’ earlier this year.

The Stonic has won the iF product design award in the “Transportation Design” category as well as the Red Dot award in the “Car Design” category in 2018. It also holds a 5-star crash test rating from Euro-NCAP.
Crossovers are becoming increasingly popular all around the world primarily due to their rugged appearance and high ground clearance which is considered a huge plus taking into account the sort of road conditions we have here. Although there is no trunk (diggi), still the luggage space is quite sufficient to carry goods of various sorts.
Since long it was reported that Kia-Lucky is considering to introduce a car that will entice Yaris and City buyers into opting for a crossover, and from the looks of it, Kia Stonic might be it. Although there is no concrete information regarding the pricing of Kia Stonic in Pakistan, however it should ideally be priced between PKR 2.5 million and PKR 2.9 million to take on the likes of City & Yaris. Do you think the Stonic crossover will prove itself as a suitable alternative to aforementioned sedans, let us know with your comments.
