2018 Kia Stinger Review

Overview
A true GT car is nimble and fast luxurious and quiet. It balances ride comfort with dynamic handling. It seats five—and has room for their luggage. Yes the Kia Stinger is a true Gran Turismo. Choose from five models starting with the Stinger and moving up to the sublime GT. A true GT doesn’t sacrifice luxury and grace for raw power and razor-sharp handling so the Stinger is built on a longer wheelbase. That means the Stinger has more interior volume than a Lexus GS and available features like air-cell lumbar support add even more comfort. But just because the Stinger is designed for long-distance luxury don’t think it skimps on performance. It’s more powerful than an Audi A7 Sportback and quicker than a BMW 440i Gran Coupe. And from its UVO connectivity system to Kia’s available Drive Wise driver-assistance features there’s enough technology to make every drive more connected and protected. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a Stinger that’s all yours. The Kia Stinger. It’s a true GT value.
Technology
Everybody stays connected in a Kia Stinger. Manage your music make phone calls get directions and more with Kia’s UVO connectivity system. It comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and every Forte comes with Sirius satellite radio and Bluetooth wireless technology. Navigation is available and comes with real-time traffic information. Download the free UVO eServices app and use your smartphone to access your Stinger. Contact roadside assistance find your car in a parking lot and more. The Kia Stinger. True GT-car connectivity.
Safety
When you think of safety think of the Kia Stinger. Be more confident on the road with Kia Drive Wise. Blind-Spot Collision Warning Lane-Keep Assist Forward Collision Avoidance—these are just a few of the driver-assist features available. Sick of overriding cruise control when someone’s in front of you? Available Smart Cruise Control uses radar to track your speed to the vehicle ahead. And don’t ever back out of a parking space or driveway again without the Stinger’s available Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning. The Kia Stinger. The safer GT car.
Performance
A true GT car is nimble fast and comfortable. With the highest performance of any Kia ever the Stinger checks all the GT boxes. Choose between a two-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a 3.3-liter V-6 with 365 turbocharged horsepower. Both come with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. A true GT car doesn’t sacrifice comfort and grace for dynamic handling. Get all three with dynamic Stability Damping Control Kia’s first continuous electronically controlled suspension system. The Kia Stinger. The best value in true GT cars.
