Overview of the Kia Stinger

Learn about the Kia Stinger

Summary

Designed to offer Canadian consumers an alternative to the usual lineup of luxury vehicles on the market, the Kia Stinger goes above and beyond the brand's usual mainstream selection of cars. Its attractive exterior houses a powerful, efficient engine and ample cargo space.

Initially launched in 2018, the Kia Stinger is a relatively new product line for the manufacturer. The newest models have been rebranded into a single GT-Line of 4-cylinder sports sedans to make them even more accessible for general consumers.

Safety

Since its 2018 inception, the Kia Stinger has consistently netted impressive safety ratings. The vehicle has regularly offered nearly every driver assist feature as an available option, except for self-parking and automated rear braking. Some standard safety features of the Kia Stinger include:

  • Rearview camera, which helps avoid collisions when parking
  • Front and rear parking sensors, notifying you of potential hazards while backing into a parking spot
  • High-beam assist to automatically switch lights between high beams and low beams

The 2019 models also come standard with blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert to help provide a safe driving experience.

Interior

The Kia Stinger's interior is attractive thanks to its considered design, making it an ideal choice when browsing other luxury sports sedans. The standard leather seats offer a supportive and comfortable feel that's perfect for both short and long trips, while backseat passengers are sure to be more than pleased with lots of legroom.

Technology

Kia's signature infotainment system, called UVO, is integrated into all Stinger models. The standard 7-inch touchscreen system includes Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, HD Radio and a six-speaker stereo with Bluetooth and USB ports. Blending straightforward touchscreen menus with clear, concise physical buttons, the Kia Stinger makes it simple for Canadian drivers to access all of the vehicle's features without having to take their eyes off the road.

Space

With the ability to seat five people, the Kia Stinger offers ample interior space and reliable seating comfort all-around. The vehicle's hatchback design creates a spacious interior with an abundance of cargo-carrying capacity, offering 23.3 cubic feet of space behind its back seat and 40.9 cubic feet with the back seats folded down. These figures help the Stinger bridge the gap between traditional luxury sports sedans and many of the other mainstream vehicles found in Kia's lineup.

Comfort

Designed to combine comfort and sport, the Kia Stinger offers a precise ride with responsive and predictable steering and brakes. When paired with the vehicle's exceptionally spacious interior, this balanced performance feels unlike what consumers have come to expect from traditional sport sedans. Passengers, especially those riding in the rear, are treated to a particularly comfortable experience, with plenty of extra space to stretch their legs.
