The all-new 2018 Kia Stinger is the first GT concept vehicle from Kia. This five-passenger sportback vehicle is the highest-performance vehicle in the company's history, and offers multiple drivetrain configurations and accommodations. The design of the Stinger is powerful, sleek and versatile. It gives off an air of elegance and athleticism instead of raw aggression. The Stinger has large air intakes and air curtains in the front, a smooth underbody, and a rear diffuser that work together to enhance the vehicle's aerodynamic efficiency.
Inside the Stinger, a confident dashboard creates a strong horizontal plane for the driver. The center console is split into two specific areas: the infotainment controls sit directly below a large color touchscreen display, while the climate controls are nestled underneath. A leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel with paddle shifters and a "D" shaped steering wheel enhance the sportiness inside, allowing you to turn quicker and shift gears without taking your hands off the wheel.
The Kia Stinger has two turbocharged engines available. The first is a 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 255 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. This engine can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 5.9 seconds. The second engine option is a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that reaches 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. This model gets to 60 miles per hour in just 4.7 seconds.
Technology in the Stinger is intuitive and dynamic. The height-adjustable color Head-Up Display allows the driver to see key driving information including speed, turn-by-turn navigation, audio and cruise control settings and Blind Spot Detection information. A wireless smartphone charging pad and Bluetooth® hands-free operation comes standard, and a number of safety systems also come standard. These systems include Forward Collision Avoidance with pedestrian detection, Lane Keeping Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning.
