KIA Stinger (2018–)

Last updated 26 February 2018

365HP/510Nm 3.3-litre V6 offers 0-60 in 4.7 seconds and 168mph top speed. Outstanding level of standard equipment on £40,000 3.3 GT S. Undercuts German opposition spec for spec by £15,000 - £20,000.
The myth, prejudice and snobbery that continues to favour the Germans. No room for a spare wheel. Stinger's battery and significant electrics sit in a well under the load floor that could be vulnerable to water ingress.

The Stinger is KIA's most powerful model ever, with the top, twin-turbo, 3.3-litre V6 producing a hefty 365PS and 510Nm of torque, providing a top speed just short of 170mph and a 0-60mph sprint of 4.7 seconds.

A less powerful 2.0-litre engine is also offered with 255PS and 350Nm. And a 197PS 2.2 diesel with 450Nm. All engines send drive via an eight-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels as standard. 4WD is offered in LHD markets, but not with RHD because it doesn't fit.

A large amount of high-strength steel is used in the body which, along with advanced multi-link rear suspension, adjustable damping and configurable drive modes, should make the Stinger capable through corners.

The Stinger has a longer wheelbase than the Audi A4 and BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe, so should provide ample cabin space for both front and rear seat passengers, along with a useable boot.

Up front the cabin has a classy layout, dominated by three turbine-style air vents and a large touchscreen system. Technology includes forward collision assistance, lane keep assistance, blind spot detection, a head up display, a wireless smartphone charger and, optionally, a 720W Harman/Kardon audio system.
