Urbanization has brought us so much convenience and saved us time getting to places, but it also came at a price tag not at all negligible for some: nearly-impossible-to-find parking spots, and if any, often a crammed street corner. And that’s exactly why small and compact cars - small enough to efficiently navigate through busy streets yet not lacking in performance - are growing in popularity amongst urbanites. To fulfill the increased demand for city cars, Kia offers a solid lineup of small and compact vehicles that are perfect for city dwellers looking for a car that cater to their everyday needs.


Kia Soul: Compact Body, Big Personality


A total package that delivers design, performance and affordability altogether, Kia’s award-winning compact crossover Soul drives like a car yet has the ground clearance of an SUV. Thanks to its fun, squared-off design and rainbow of exterior colors to choose from that bring so much personality to the car, the Kia Soul has been named one of the 10 Coolest New Cars of 2018 by Kelley Blue Book, a world-renowned automotive valuation and research company.


Despite its compact size, the Soul has been noted for its outstanding ergonomics and tech features that make it a great choice for families. The Kia Soul’s just-right height makes it easy for young children and elderly with limited mobility to get in and out of the car. Its spacious interior has also been highly praised. Additionally, the Soul has proven its quality and performance by receiving the 2017 J.D. Power Quality Award and Performance Award.


Kia Picanto: Full of Energy, Never Out of Style


Boasting stylish contours and striking looks, the Kia Picanto is undoubtedly at the center of attention, even in the busiest city street. Its striking curves and robust colors make a bold statement wherever it goes and captures the hearts of city drivers.


In order to provide the flexibility that city life requires, the Picanto offers folding rear seats and dual-level luggage board that allow for a more efficient use of in-cabin capacity. An added bonus is its advanced sensing technology, so drivers can stay out of tricky situations when driving or parking in limited space.


Unsurprisingly, the Picanto has won the 2018 Red Dot Design Award and iF Design Award for its standout design that fits perfectly in urban setting.


Kia Stonic: Always Getting Things Done


A relatively new addition to Kia’s full vehicle portfolio, Kia’s compact SUV Stonic came in hot at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, showing off its muscular design. Available with customizable two-tone body color, the Stonic is the prime choice for urbanites looking to express individuality in a grey-toned concrete jungle. 

The Stonic’s spacious interior and cargo flexibility allow for more versatility; whether you’re driving through the city or going on a weekend getaway, the Stonic will offer maximum use out of its space and the ability to get more things done throughout the day.


With its confident, athletic appearance, the Stonic brought home the 2018 Red Dot Design Award and was particularly highly evaluated for its customizability and spacious interior.


Combining practicality and fun design, Kia’s small and compact vehicle portfolio provides ways to remain stylish amidst a hectic city life. Hop on one of these stunning cars, and get ready to take on the day ahead of you!
