The 2018 Kia Stinger is Kia's Fastest (and Most Stunning) Car Produced
Set to compete with European luxury brands, the 2018 Kia Stinger can keep up performance and design-wise, all for a better price.
Kia rolls out its fastest and most attractive car ever - the 2018 Kia Stinger GT. The GT model, according to Kia, goes from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.1 seconds and will be available in small quantities, with just 200 Kia Stinger Calgary and Canadian units to start. A more affordable model is set to follow.
Kia Stinger Calgary - Designed and Tested in Europe
Audi and BMW should watch out - the manufacturer designed this sports hatchback sedan in their own backyard of Frankfurt, Germany and tested it on the famed Nurburgring Grand Prix racetrack. .
The model will be the first Kia to come as either an all-wheel drive or rear-wheel-drive sedan. Kia took great lengths to test traction by testing the Stinger in the Swedish Arctic on a lake bed. They could have probably tested it under similar conditions here in Calgary in February. .
Under the Hood of the 2018 Kia Stinger
The 2018 Kia Stinger GT comes with an all-wheel-drive powertrain and a 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 that puts out a hefty 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds. According to Kia, a dynamic torque-distribution system will optimize the power and road grip individually for each of the wheels. .
According to Kia Canada, the future Kia Stinger for sale base-level option will be fitted with a turbocharged, 2.0-litre four-cylinder that sends 255 hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque to the wheels and available as rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. It will be mated to the same eight-speed automatic transmission of the GT.
Kia Stinger for Sale Interior
The sporty fastback design is not only aerodynamic but also provides a good amount of interior space. The wheelbase is longer than rivals like the BMW 3-Series. With all seats up, the five-seater has 660 L of cargo space. Drop the rear seats down for 1,158 L of cargo space. For loading and unloading effortlessly, Kia added a power rear hatch that opens hands-free. .
A leather-wrapped gear shifter with chrome trim, paddle shifters on the steering wheel and stainless steel sport pedals give the driver a track-inspired feel when behind the wheel. Luxurious details like leather seating, a heated steering wheel, ambient LED lighting, a welcome lighting system that engages when entering the car and a quiet, well-insulated cabin featuring acoustic laminated glass make the ride enjoyable for everyone. .
