Introducing the all-new 2018 Kia Stinger. Kia’s GT Concept Car come to life as a true Grand Touring vehicle, complete with rear- or all-wheel drive, luxury amenities, and head-turning design. Unveiled at the 2017 North American International Auto Show and on sale later this year, the Kia Stinger is more than a fastback sports sedan. It’s Kia redefined.
To bring the 2018 Kia Stinger to life, Kia Motors’ chief design officer Peter Schreyer turned to his design team in Frankfurt. But what makes it authentically gran turismo, a car for a spirited long-distance drive? Years of commitment and passion resulting in bold style, nimble performance, and undeniable luxury.
The exterior, with its fastback silhouette and sleek rear-wheel-drive proportions, exudes disarming confidence. Longer and wider than a BMW 4 Gran Coupe, with a longer wheelbase than the Lexus GS, it delivers elegance and athleticism. From the back, four oval exhaust pipes show and tell a commanding presence even during departure.
Albert Biermann, former BMW M Division VP and now head of Kia’s Vehicle Test & High Performance Development, and his team developed the superior ride and handling of the 2018 Kia Stinger. Kia’s first sedan with available AWD, it has a new Dynamic Stability Damping Control suspension that adapts to your driving.
Take your pick of two turbocharged engines, both matched with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The available twin-turbo V6 engine offers over 360 horsepower for a powerful drivetrain that delivers exhilarating performance, optimized fuel efficiency, and a premium sports car feel.
Both the Stinger Premium and the Stringer GT2 models will be on display.
