Features & Trims
The 2018 Kia Stinger has five trim levels. The base comes equipped with features such as 18-inch wheels, front and rear parking sensors, keyless ignition, leather upholstery, Bluetooth, heated front seats and steering, wheel, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, six-speaker audio system and satellite radio, Apple Car Play and Android Auto, and a 7-inch touchscreen.

The GT, GT1, and GT2 trims offer more powerful engines and upgraded safety features ranging from forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking to lane departure warning and correction.
The Stinger is easy to drive, provides quick, powerful acceleration, and responsive steering. Its 8-speed transmission chooses the gear that’s appropriate for the condition and adjusts smoothly.
The Stinger provides comfort as good as any of its pricier, European counterparts. It boasts front seats with bolsters are comfortable during long-distance drives and hold you when cornering.
With large cargo space and plenty of pockets and bins, the Stiner surpasses other hatchbacks in terms of cargo capacity. The rear seats can also be folded if additional space is needed for larger bags.
The sound system quality from the audio system is somewhat lacking, but the laundry list of other features including the built-in navigation system and voice control more than make up for it.
