Depending on the spec, the Stonic has touchscreen sat nav, lane departure warning if you drift over the white line, a driver tiredness warning, reversing camera and even a heated steering wheel.

This is Kia’s upper-mid sized saloon that also comes as an estate.

Kia fits 215/55R17 and 235/45R18 tyres.
This cross-over SUV was the first hybrid from Kia, with an eye on the future its chassis and basic structure was designed from the start to be only used for hybrid or electric cars. The Niro is a parallel hybrid which means that both the petrol engine and electric motor work together most of the time but it can operate in battery-only mode for short distances. From April 2019 a battery-only and zero emission e-Niro will be added and which Kia says will have a range of around 280 miles on a single charge. It was voted What Car? magazine’s Car of the Year 2019. The standard Niro runs on 205/60 R16 or 225/45 R18 tyres and the e-Niro on 215/55 R17s.

The Sportage comes in 16 different versions based on six engines, three gearboxes and five trim lines.
