The sports saloon was always going to be a halo car for Kia, yet they believed it would be successful at least in the U.S. – and that didn’t happen.
The Kia Stinger was the single best-performing vehicle in the study, scoring 834 points out of a 1,000 maximum.
Kia UK saved a Stinger GT S pre-production car from the crusher by making it a track special.
It may not have a German badge but the Kia Stinger is one of the most desirable sports sedans.
The new Kia Stinger GTS packs 365 hp and a trick all-wheel drive system. It also has a cool orange paint job.
The Stinger features a twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 engine with 365 HP, so it’s well suited to this role.
2018 was a rather flat year for Kia but the Stinger appears to have done pretty well in its first year in the market.
We already know that the Kia Stinger is fast, but is it fast enough to challenge the Model S?.
The ultra-wide and very low Stinger was displayed at this year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Both cars have been made in collaboration with DUB, and will be joined by other custom Kia vehicles in Las Vegas.
It may not be the sharpest sports sedan out there, but overall, the new Stinger is a very capable car.
