KIA Lucky Motors may be planning on introducing another SUV, the KIA Stonic, in the Pakistan automotive market and the vehicle will reportedly cost as much as a Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra or Toyota Corolla.
According to PakWheels, the company has imported three units of the KIA Stonic in Pakistan. However, there is no official news regarding the launch of this crossover SUV in the local market.

KIA Stonic Pakistan Variant
There is no confirmation regarding launch of the crossover SUV in Pakistan or the variant which will be introduced here if the company goes ahead with introducing the vehicle in the local automotive market.
However, if the KIA Stonic is launched in Pakistan, there will be a lot of competition for the vehicle as it is expected to be priced similarly to the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra along with other SUVs like MG ZS, Honda BR-V and the upcoming DFSK Glory 500.
