2018 Kia Stinger

The new paradigm of gran turismo, delivering high performance and supreme comfort on the open road; not for the faint-hearted.

DRIVE.

Bred on the track. Made for the journey. The all-new Stinger strikes the perfect balance of power and refinement, featuring your choice of two turbocharged engines matched with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Go 0-60 mph in under five seconds. With up to 365 horsepower and 376 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2018 Stinger GT is the new grand touring that takes you farther, faster. Albert Biermann, head of Kia’s Vehicle Test & High Performance Development and former BMW M Division VP, and his talented team of engineers were committed to perfecting the Stinger’s ride and handling. The result is finely-tuned chassis feedback, high levels of lateral grip, and smooth power delivery.

Untame the road.

Take your pick between the 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine or the 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Each paired with a gearing-optimized version of Kia’s next-gen 8-speed automatic transmission for fast, seamless shifting and decisive acceleration. It’s refined power at any speed. The Stinger’s eye-catching alloy wheels are engineered to conquer any road. And twin-turbo V6 Stinger GT features 19-inch Michelin® Pilot Sport 4S Summer Tires and a fade-free multi-piston Brembo® braking system for consistent high-speed stopping power. Sculpted to be aggressively aerodynamic, from the drag-minimizing A-pillar molding in the front to the kicked-up line at the back, the Stinger is streamlined form that truly functions.

 

 STYLE.

Meet a true gran turismo. Proportions that fit like a tailored suit. Details that captivate and exude both newness and timeless style. With an exterior that disarms, and an interior that is beautiful because it is effortlessly functional. This is the 2018 Stinger. Authentically a gran turismo from the inside out, the Stinger offers a range of exterior hues and interior trims that embody modern elegance and athleticism. The fastback silhouette features a long hood, deeply-raked windshield, and low-slung cabin, giving the appearance of motion even when still. At the front, you’ll find Kia’s signature tiger-nose grille with distinctive honeycomb detailing. Longer and wider than a BMW 4 Gran Coupe, with a longer wheelbase than the Lexus GS, the Stinger delivers enhanced stability and ample cabin space. Modern metallic elements signal the fastback sedan’s bold, sporty design. Depart in style with the Stinger’s unique LED tail-light design, dual twin exhausts, and aggressive rear fender. Visually stunning from all angles, sculpted to cut through air, the Stinger merges high performance with beautiful design.

 

The lap of luxury.

Sit in the seat of ultimate refinement. Every interior detail has been exquisitely engineered to deliver sublime sophistication, inspired by aeronautic design, so you can fly down the road in elevated style. A low-slung seating profile makes you a part of the Stinger’s sleek silhouette, putting you more in tune to the road. And ergonomic, contoured bucket seats embrace your body to cradle you in every curve. Every accent exudes ultra-modern elegance that reflects the Stinger’s aeronautic influences. From the elevated dash’s wing-like design, to the circular spoked air vents and the floating display screen. In the Stinger, the exceptional is the rule. Premium materials are infused throughout, from metallic accents, and standard leather seats with hand stitching, to available lush Nappa leather seat covers for superior comfort.

 

 INNOVATION.

The Stinger’s advanced technology offers more than convenience. It connects you to your world so that you can stay connected to the road. For intuitive control and smarter, more spirited driving.  Kia's exclusive connectivity system, UVO, keeps your world connected with seamless smartphone integration, Apple CarPlay and Android Audio compatibility, Bluetooth wireless technology, and diagnostic capabilities. The Harman/Kardon Premiun Sound System has advanced sound technology that dills the cabin with rich, balanced audio through 15 speakers-for sound as it ws meant to be heard. With Kia's advanced Drive Wise technology at your service, Blind-Spot Collison Warning and Drive Attention Warning work to help make every journey, short or long, feel spirited.

SAFETY.
