Performance Meets Luxury With the 2018 Kia Stinger

Kia has long been slept on when it comes to rating midsize sedan luxury, performance, and overall style. Those days have now come to an end with the all-new 2018 Kia Stinger, a sporty, elegant take on a sedan well known for its reliability and easy handling. Peterbrough Kia has been anticipating this highly-acclaimed Kia model for some time, which is why we’re excited to present the characteristics we believe elevate the Kia Stinger into a class of its own.

Trim Options

 

The Stinger is available in five trims: 2.0L, Premium, GT, GT1, and GT2; all of which can be upgraded to all-wheel drive. The 2.0L trim, the most affordable of the lot, doesn’t skimp on luxury or performance with its push-to-start button feature, 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, and premium fuel recommendation. The Premium trims features all that the 2.0L trim has, with the addition of a navigation system, a sunroof, and high-performance dampers. The GT trims feature upgrades like electronically controlled suspension and shift-by-wire-capabilities, making the Stinger a competitor worthy of the auto world’s attention.

 

High-Class Interior

 

What sets the 2018 Kia Stinger apart from the rest is that even its lowest level trim boasts a supremely luxurious interior. The 2.0L trim features leather seat trim with heated front seats, a first for Kia lower-end trims. As you get up to the higher-level trims, the Stinger becomes available in Nappa leather seat options, premium sound system upgrades, and advanced driver assistance systems.

 

A New Realm of Power

 

The Kia Stinger’s performance easily rivals that of luxury brands such as BMW, Lexus, and Mercedes. Not only can all Stinger models be upgraded to all-wheel drive, they also come with turbo-powered engines. However, each engine differs with each trim. The 2.0L and Premium trims feature an I-4 Turbo GDI engine with 255 horsepower and 22-city/29-highway/25-combined MPG. All of the Stinger GT trims feature a 3.3L V6 Twin Turbo GDI with 365 horsepower and 19-city/25-highway/21-combined MPG.
