Upmarket and assured, the Kia Stinger is a midsize hatchback that handles like some of the industry’s top sports sedans. Launched for the 2018 model year, the Stinger offers bold sheet metal, compelling performance and a generous list of feature content.
The Stinger’s sheet metal melds European refinement with muscle-car aggressiveness. A long hood leads the way up front, and the top trims come with high-gloss hood vents that add some bite to the car’s look. A distinctive grille features black and chrome elements, and flared automatic headlights brighten the path ahead. In profile, the Stinger is low and long, with a sloping roof and a rising beltline. The rear view showcases a hatchback with a wide opening, which facilitates easy loading of cargo.
Within its cabin, the Stinger maintains the assertive design cues reflected in its exterior. The interior is spacious and upmarket, with comfortable seating for five. An available flat-bottom steering wheel lends a sporty vibe, and the door panels feature intricate sculpting that mimics the look of the car’s front fascia. A standard manual tilt-and-telescoping steering column makes it easy for you to find an amenable position behind the wheel, and you’ll also find amenities such as dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery and heated front seats. The Stinger aims to credibly compete with top luxury models, and it has the upscale options to meet this challenge.
The Kia Stinger was introduced with two engine choices. A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine good for 255 horsepower is standard, while top trim levels come with a turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 that provides a robust 365 horsepower. An eight-speed automatic transmission, and both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are offered.
Kia’s Stinger should be cross-shopped with hatchbacks and sedans such as the Audi A7, BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Jaguar XF. While the Stinger lacks the brand cachet of these rivals, it makes a strong case for itself in the area of overall value.
