Kia Now Compares Stinger GT To Porsche Panamera And BMW 6-Series

The Kia Stinger is a more affordable alternative to cars such as the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe and Audi A5 Sportback, undercutting the latter in the USA by over $10,000 in base form.

Much in the same way it put its new Forte against the Lamborghini Aventador, the Korean automaker has released a new video that pits the $41,250 Stinger GT with limited-slip differential pack, against the larger and much more expensive BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe and Porsche Panamera, both of which cost in the region of $90,000.

Supervised by AMCI Testing, the ‘comparison test’ included four ytials: acceleration, cornering, slalom, and closed-course lap, and each car was driven by a professional racing driver. To no one’s surprise, the Korean five-door liftback prevailed in most tests, although the Panamera V6 turned out to be slightly better around corners, whereas the Bimmer came in last each time.

Kia appears to really embrace this practice of pitting its new cars against much more expensive metal. Not that it expects Panamera or Aventador customers to opt for the Stinger or Forte, of course, but it’s a novel, way of advertising their new models. They certainly have a sense of humor those guys, don’t they?
