Albert Biermann, head of Kia’s Vehicle Test & High Performance Development and former BMW M Division VP, and his talented team of engineers were committed to perfecting the Stinger’s ride and handling. The result is finely-tuned chassis feedback, high levels of lateral grip, and smooth power delivery.
Take your pick between the 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine or the 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Each paired with a gearing-optimized version of Kia’s next-gen 8-speed automatic transmission for fast, seamless shifting and decisive acceleration. It’s refined power at any speed.
Unlike some vehicles whose steering feels artificial, the Stinger’s Rack-Mounted Driven Power Steering (RMDPS) is built to be exceptionally accurate. Twin-turbo V6-powered Stinger GT trims also feature variable ratio steering for optimized stability and responsiveness when needed.
Thoughtful design elements, like integrated front-bumper air curtains that reduce turbulence in the wheel wells, help the Stinger achieve an impressive drag coefficient of .30 Cd.
Available Brembo® brakes feature red four-piston front and two-piston rear calipers for outstanding initial bite and precision control.
The lightweight, 19-inch wheel design: made to hug curves and turn heads. Standard on all GT trims.
Sit in the seat of ultimate refinement. Every interior detail has been exquisitely engineered to deliver sublime sophistication, inspired by aeronautic design, so you can fly down the road in elevated style.
Every accent exudes ultra-modern elegance that reflects the Stinger’s aeronautic influences. From the elevated dash’s wing-like design, to the circular-spoked air vents and floating display screen.
In the Stinger, the exceptional is the rule. Premium materials are infused throughout, from metallic accents and standard leather trimmed seats, to available lush Nappa leather seat trim for superior comfort.
Cabin or concert hall? Let it be both with the available Harman/Kardon® Premium Audio with Clari-Fi™, advanced sound technology that fills the cabin with rich, balanced audio through 15 speakers—for sound as it was meant to be heard.
Engineered to respond to the road and adapt to the unexpected, the Stinger’s advanced safety systems provide enhanced control even in many harsh road conditions. So that you can drive confidently on your journey.
Engineered to help you stay on track and in control through the curves.
