When people think luxury sports sedan, Kia is probably not the first brand that pops in mind. However, things have changed for good and Kia has stepped up its game and moved into the big boys’ world with the all-new 2018 Stinger. The 2018 Kia Stinger will compete the likes of Jaguar XE, BMW 3 and 4-series, Mercedes Benz C-Class, Audi A4 and A5.
It is very much evident from the exterior design that Kia wants a piece from the Germans. Korean-made cars are not really known for their performance or design but Kia Stinger is quite the exception. The 2018 Stinger GT has a hatchback like BMW 4-Series and Audi A5. The 2018 Kia Stinger packs a powerful punch with quick-step agility making it another feather in the prized luxury sports sedan segment.
2018 Kia Stinger features an upscale interior that has touch of elegance everywhere. A 7.0-inch touchscreen is standard and for the music lovers, there’s option to up your music game with a 15-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. There’s plenty of room for a sports sedan and the well thought out upholstery and dash design will leave little room for complaints.
Under the Hood
The 2018 Kia Stinger features a 255 horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter, inline-four as a base engine. You also have the option to upgrade to a bigger and better: 3.3-liter V-6 that generates 365 horses. Both engines are coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission. You can choose between a rear or all-wheel drive Stinger. Kia Stinger can clock 0 to 60 in just 4.8 seconds and while the official EPA results are not yet available, unofficial benchmarks suggest you can expect 17/26 mpg (City/Highway).
The 2018 Kia Stinger comes at a base price of $40,000. A more practical Stinger will probably cost you around fifty grands but for the quality craftsmanship and performance that Stinger delivers, we must say this is a bargain especially when you compare the Stinger with its German counterparts.
