This is not your average sedan – not by a long shot.
The 2019 Kia Stinger mid-size four-door is the perfect balance of luxury and high performance that makes a back road thrilling and a long journey comfortable.
The Stinger’s design was inspired by classic European Gran Turismo sports cars – elegant and fast – while providing a high level of comfort on a long journey.
With its low profile, aggressive stance, and fast-back design, the Stinger cuts a sharp and fast silhouette on any street or highway.
There is space for five passengers and ample room to make any journey comfortable for everyone who’s long for the ride.
The convenience of the fastback allows for easy access for storage with a powered rear hatch that opens hand’s free for plenty of cargo area and with the folding rear seats you have access to additional space.
While intended to be a beautifully designed vehicle, the Stinger is also engineered to provide maximum efficiency and performance on the road.
With font bumper air vents, fastback design, and streamlined contours, the Stinger is built to be aerodynamic and slice through the air with barely a ripple.
A wide, unique front grille and fascia and wrap around LED headlights lets the Stinger create as much of a splash of excitement when arriving as it does on the highway.
The exterior package is finished with 19-inch machine-finished alloy wheels.
There are six colours to choose from, each selected to highlight and enhance the Stinger’s shape and smooth body contours.
The real thrill comes when you get behind the wheel and take your place in the driver’s cockpit and experience the sporty design combined with the luxury features that surround you.
With a choice of black or red Nappa leather seats, you can feel the quality in every vehicle.
The driver’s seat wraps around you and all controls are within easy reach. The instrument cluster is brightly lit and easily readable at a glance so you don’t have to take your eyes off of the road.
Attention to detail is everywhere in the cabin from the premium quality of materials used to the accented highlights in the interior design.
When it comes to technology, the Stinger is loaded with features that deliver entertainment as well as assist you when you are on the road.
Driver assist functions include Driver Attention Alert, that signals f you are drifting out of your lane, Advanced Smart Cruise Control, that monitors vehicles and ahead of you and takes appropriate action, and an available 360 degree Camera Monitoring System that gives a real-time birds-eye view of the vehicle making parking and manoeuvring quick and safe.
Staying connected to the world while on the road has never been easier.
The Stinger keeps you in touch while you’re on the go with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. You can make calls, reply to messages and enjoy your favourite apps easily and safely.
When it comes to power, the Stinger was road tested on race tracks in Europe to test its capabilities and level of endurance.
Under the hood there is a 3.3 L, Twin-Turbo, GDI, V6 aluminum engine that takes you from zero to 60 in 4.7 seconds – faster than the closest comparable automobiles.
With 365 horsepower and 376 lb.-ft. of torque, keeping up with highway traffic is easy and efficient. The powertrain is complete with an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters on the steering wheel.
All this is matched with a standard All-Wheel Drive system that allows a confident grip on the road in any driving conditions.
The Stinger must be driven to truly appreciate what this fine automobile is all about and what it can do.
Awarded many honours for its design, including AutoGuide.com Car of the Year, Reddot Award for Best of the best car design, and Best of the Best from the Canadian Automotive Jury, the automotive industry has taken notice of the Stinger and reviews have been overwhelmingly positive about engineering, design, and performance.
