2017 Kia Stinger.jpg

Kia Stinger (CK). 2017 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door sedan. F/R, F/A, 1998 cm³ petrol, 2199 cm³ diesel (I4 DOHC), 3342 cm³ (V6 DOHC). Previewed in 2011 as the Kia GT Concept, Kia productionized the model with four doors, putting it on a shortened Genesis (DH) platform. Styled by Peter Schreyer and Gregory Guillaume, with engineering by Albert Biermann, Stinger took Kia’s design themes and put them on to a low-slung coupé, creating the range’s halo model in the process. Very rigid body (71·1 kgf/mm², or 697·25 MPa). Adaptive suspension, making the car feel lithe, and torque vectoring; 50–50 weight distribution. Potent, with decent mid-range punch. Seven airbags with an active bonnet, which lifted in case of a pedestrian collision. Dream Edition trim from August 2017. Refresh in 2020.

Manufacturing location: Korea

Marque: Kia
