For a long time making a GT was on Kia’s wish list and the dream finally came true. Launched at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, the Stinger is a five-passenger fastback sports sedan aiming to add excitement in a segment currently popularised by premium European automakers, the Kia Stinger promises to be the highest-performance production vehicle in the company’s history and is backed by Kia Motors’ industry-leading quality and reliability.
At 114.4 inches, the Stinger’s wheelbase is longer than the Audi A4, Infiniti Q50, Lexus IS, BMW 4 Gran Coupe and even the Lexus GS and Mercedes CLS. It’s also longer overall (190.2 inches) and wider (73.6 inches) than the others in the segment, allowing for spacious accommodations. The Stinger’s cargo area is also larger than many in its class, with enough space for full-size luggage or golf bags and a power liftgate with Smart Trunk functionality is available.
For the Middle East two engine choices are offered – the entry level engine is a turbocharged 255hp Theta II 2.0-litre four-cylinder and the top option is the 365hp 3.3-litre turbocharged Lambda II V6 unit. Both engines are mated to Kia’s secon generation 8-speed automatic transmission.
The Stinger comes as rear-wheel drive standard and optional all-wheel-drive. Standard features include power steering, power windows, electric mirrors, cruise control, remote locking, central locking, leather seats, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Optional equipment include genuine leather upholstery, 8-inch screen with navigation, 19-inch alloy wheels, heads up display, ventilated front seats and remote start. Safety features include front, side and knee airbags, ABS, ESP, traction control and brake assist. Optional safety features include blind spot monition, front collision warning, parking distance warning front and back and rear cross-traffic alert.
