Let's take a look at what makes the new Stinger performance sedan the car to drive and be seen driving in 2018 and beyond!
Kia developed the 2018 Stinger sports sedan to deliver a tailored driving experience; that is why multiple powertrain configurations are offered -- and every 2018 Stinger gets a shift-on-demand 8-speed automatic transmission. The new Stinger sports sedan starts out in the 2.0-liter base trim equipped with a 255-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, rear-wheel drive (RWD) and an 8-speed auto gearbox with paddle shifters. An advanced all-wheel drive (AWD) system is available on every 2018 Stinger trim level, which is an affordable option that enhances all-weather control and everyday cornering confidence.
Car buyers who step up to the 2018 Stinger GT, GT1 or GT2 trim levels get Kia's extra-potent 3.3-liter twin-turbo under the hood. With 365 hp and available AWD, the twin-turbo version of the new Stinger can reach 60 mph from a standstill in under five seconds! In the handling and braking departments, the Stinger GT trim and up impress with sporty 19-inch alloy wheels and powerful Brembo brakes and summer performance tires at all four corners.
The all-new 2018 Kia Stinger makes for the ideal gran turismo or grand touring car, thanks to its plush yet confident ride, powerful engine choices and well-appointed cabin for up to five passengers. With premium leather seating surfaces, Kia's UVO connectivity system and an available Harman/Kardon Premium Sound System -- complete with 15 speakers -- the 2018 Stinger is as refined as it is high-performing!
In addition to active safety systems like AWD, traction control and Cornering Brake Control (CBC), the 2018 Kia Stinger is offered with Kia's latest driver-assist features like Driver Attention Warning, which monitors the driver and provides feedback alerts to keep the driver engaged and attentive. The available Forward Collision Avoidance Assist features a pedestrian detection function that can lessen or avoid the effects of a frontal collision, while the Advanced Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go adds yet another level of safety and convenience to your journey. Every 2018 Stinger also comes with a rearview backup camera and driver's knee airbag.
