Since its launch in 2018, the Kia Stinger has won awards from industry groups, received excellent reviews in the media, and built a loyal following among Canadian fans of high-performance, compact executive cars.
And now the Stinger is about to set the market alight once more, with the release of a brand-new limited edition of the model by Kia Canada. Slated to arrive in Kia dealer showrooms in early fall, it's a release that's sure to spark plenty of excitement in Calgary and beyond.
As the name suggests, the most immediate impact the limited edition makes is through the exterior colour. Finished in bold neon orange paint, it's a car that will certainly make a strong first impression.
As Kia Canada's Director of Marketing, Michael Kopke, says, "The neon orange colour really makes a head-turning statement to a model that already stands out for its looks on the road."
But eye-catching appearances aside, what else does this highly limited edition bring to the party?
With its 3.3L twin-turbo GDI 6-cylinder engine, the new edition is based around the existing GT Limited trim of the current 2020 model. Cranking out fully 365 horsepower and 376lb-ft of torque, it's a car that's packed with aggressive performance capability on both road and track.
Couple the power with an 8-speed 'Sportmatic' automatic transmission feeding all-wheel drive, and you've got a compact executive car which delivers a blistering ride.
But all that juicy power is fully harnessed by strong, performance-tuned engineering. Features such as four-wheel ABS disc Brembo brakes, limited-slip differential, electronic control suspension, and Michelin Performance tires mean that handling is confident, controlled, reliable, yet totally thrilling.
As a high-end executive model, it's not only the engineering under the hood which pushes this car straight into the luxury bracket. Plenty of advanced technology is featured as standard, with highlights including:
- Heads up display.
- A full suite of advanced driver assist systems for convenience and safety.
- A 360° camera for impeccable all-round visibility.
- Premium 15-speaker Harmon-Kardon audio system.
And as you'd expect from a car in this class, the infotainment system is second to none, based around an 8" multimedia touchscreen interface with integrated navigation, UVO Intelligence service for information and diagnostics, and Android Auto / Apple CarPlay for smartdevice connectivity.
Lastly, every detail of the Neon Orange Stinger GT Limited has been tweaked to provide a luxurious and exclusive feel. From the soft Nappa leather seats and orange-trimmed floor mats on the inside, to the 19" machine-finished alloy wheels on the outside, this Stinger limited edition exudes class and powerful refinement.
Pricing for the new limited edition Stinger model is set by Kia Canada at $51,995 for when it lands in early fall. We aim to be the first Kia dealer in Calgary you'll come to to experience this remarkable car in person. Contact us now to arrange a test drive, but hurry - this strictly limited edition Stinger is sure to be in high demand.
