2021 Kia Stonic GT Line Adds To The Small Crossover

2021 Kia Stonic GT-Line

Kia unveiled the new Kia Stonic GT Line, the latest model from the brand to earn the sport-inspired GT Line specification

Kia Stonic GT-Line

The upgraded Kia Stonic GT-Line now features a lineup of efficient new `` Smartstream '' T-GDi petrol engines with a capacity of 1.0 liters, with cutting-edge innovations that enhance efficiency, including the new Kia's lightweight 48-volt hybrid vehicle. EcoDynamics + technology. It is available with a new intelligent 'wire-clutch' manual transmission (iMT) or a seven-speed dual-automatic automatic transmission (7DCT

Inside, Kia's new phase 2 UV remote communication system is combined with a new, larger 8-inch touch screen infotainment system, with the navigation system standard on the GT-Line, Connect and GT- versions. Line S ". UVO Connect's second-stage system provides customers with many new benefits, such as more accurate flight times and assistance in 'last mile' navigation, as well as a host of features to enhance connectivity and ease of use. It can be accessed via the UVO-enhanced smartphone app or via the vehicle's touch screen

  • The latest model line to earn the sport-inspired GT Line specification
  • Sporty exterior design with new customization options
  • Unique GT Line interior upgrades using Kia's latest "connected car" technology
  • A choice of 1.0-liter T-GDi engines, including lightweight hybrid options

Enhancements to the latest Stonic model include the launch of Kia's new "EcoDynamics +" light hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV). It mates the T-GDi 118PS 1.0L (turbocharged gasoline direct injection) “Smartstream” system with the 48V MHEV system, providing enhanced efficiency by smooth harvesting and subsequent release of recovered power during idling and when braking. The built-in 48V lithium-ion battery pack combines motor torque output with electrical power and can extend Engine Downtime with a Moderate Hybrid Starter Generator (MHSG) unit

Engine, power and transmission range of the 2021 Kia Stonic GT-Line

The MHSG is connected to the engine's crankshaft by a belt and switches seamlessly between 'motor' and 'generator' modes. Under acceleration in 'motor' mode, the MHSG provides electric power assistance to help reduce the load on the engine and therefore results in lower emissions. As the car decelerates, the MHSG has the ability to switch to 'generator' mode in certain conditions, recuperating energy from the crankshaft to recharge the battery

The new 'Smartstream' engine replaces the Stonic's earlier 'Kappa'-generation 1.0-liter T-GDi powerplant and is equipped with Continuously Variable Valve Duration (CVVD) technology. CVVD enables the engine to switch seamlessly between different combustion cycles depending on load, maximizing efficiency in all driving situations. The Smartstream engine produces the same power as the previous Kappa engine - 99bhp or 118bhp - but enables slightly higher peak torque output, depending on transmission. For instance, the peak torque output from the 118bhp edition with a seven-speed double-clutch transmission (7DCT) is 16 per cent higher at 200Nm

The new EcoDynamics + powertrain is offered with the 118 hp version of the new engine, with a drive mode select system that allows drivers to customize the driving experience with the 'Eco', 'Sport' and 'Normal' modes. EcoDynamics + models are also available with Kia's new smart manual transmission (iMT). The "wire-by-wire" clutch system increases the fuel efficiency of the MHEV system and reduces CO2 emissions, while keeping the driver engaged in the traditional manual transmission. Instead of a mechanical connection, the iMT clutch is electronically actuated. It integrates seamlessly with MHSG for earlier engine shutdown than Kia's Idle Stop & Go start-stop system on landing to stop. Both the iMT and 7 DCT transmissions allow the engine to "cruise" stops to improve fuel efficiency. This operates at speeds of up to 77 mph, and the engine is activated when the driver applies the throttle, brake or clutch pedal
