The Kia Stinger is a mid-size executive that has been in production since its first release in 2017. The model became Kia’s main offering of a sports sedan upon its release.
The Kia GT Concept shown at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show and the GT4 Concept shown at the 2014 North American International Auto Show were the inspirations for the Kia Stinger.
Like most sports sedans, this car comes in the typical 5-door liftback or fastback configuration. It has a front-mounted engine with options for rear-wheel or all-wheel-drive.
Since 2017, there has only been one generation of the Kia Stinger.
The Stinger sits above the Kia Cerato as a higher-performance sports sedan. While it does not face direct competition from the larger German manufacturers, there is an argument that it is somewhat of an alternative to the likes of the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, and Mercedes C-Class.
Kia outfit the Stinger with a number of engine options. Petrol engines range from the 2-liter Theta II T-GDi inline-4 to the GT version equipped with a 3.3-liter Lambda II T-GDi V6.
There was also a 2.2-liter R II CRDi inline-4 diesel option. Although, the option for a diesel engine was discontinued in 2020.
The Stinger comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission as standard.
In 2020, the model received a modest facelift. This included updated headlights and taillights, new wheel designs, and a new infotainment screen.
Although sports sedans are not typically used for towing, the Stinger is moderately capable of towing. The 2022 model has a towing capacity of 1500 kg/ ~3,307 lbs.
