2019 Kia Stinger vs 2019 Audi A5

The 2019 Kia Stinger features an aerodynamic exterior that is outlined in sleek curves and sloping lines. The Stinger features a wide, tiger-nose grille that helps to give it a more sporty look. Thanks to the wide range of special features-the Stinger is sure to be one of the most sought-after cars of the year. In order to demonstrate just how stunning this car truly is, we have compared to another high-performance sports car: The 2019 Audi A5.

Sophisticated Interior

Thanks to the long wheelbase of the Stinger, the car provides plenty of interior space in both the front and the back seat. The heated front seats and available cooled back seats help to ensure that the front seat passengers are able to stay at the right temperature all year long. To help them back seat passengers out during the cold Canadian winters, the Stinger also has an available heated back seat option.

The Stingers interior is both luxurious and functional. The 8-inch touchscreen multi-media display conveniently sits atop of the dash, which is right in the line of the driver's vision. This special feature helps to ensure that the driver is able to access the multi-media system without having to take their eyes off of the road. This convenient touchscreen display also comes equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity options.

The A5 also comes with an 8-inch multi-media display. However, it requires you to control it through a touchpad that is stationed in the centre console instead of being able to seamlessly navigate through the different apps with a simple touch.

Safety

The 2019 Kia Stinger is not only a joy to drive, but it is also safe as well. This year, the Stinger comes equipped with several standard safety features. Some of the safety features that this comes equipped with include:

  • Electronic Stability Control
  • 4-wheel Anti0lock Brake System
  • Hill Assist Control
  • 7 airbags
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Parking Sensor
  • Tire Pressure Monitor System
  • Reverse Camera

Efficient and Powerful

The 2019 Stinger comes equipped with a super-fast engine that provides more horsepower than the A5's engine. The Stinger comes standard with a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that is paired with an 8-speed Sportomatic automatic transmission and delivers 255 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
