Check Out the 2018 Kia Stinger
There is nothing more exciting than experiencing a brand that just outdoes itself year after year. Kia took some time to plant roots in the car manufacturing market, but once done, has managed to capture an adoring audience. With the launch of the 2018 Kia Stinger, it just solidifies the reason Kia is now a well-trusted and respected brand.
It’s Got the Looks
Sleek and elegant with contours in all the right places, the new Kia Stinger reveals the best aesthetics of the exterior without being gaudy. Strategically placed air vents ensure the Stinger has all eyes on it when passing by. Four exhaust pipes complete this slightly intimidating appearance that ensures enough respect on the road.
It Sizzles Under the Hood
There is nothing that beats a stunning car with performance to match, and the Stinger doesn’t disappoint. The base model starts off with a roaring 255 horsepower engine 2.0-liter inline-four engine. As a base model, this sets the car up for superior performance in this range. Bump it up to the high-end models and drivers can expect a massive 365 horsepower 3.3-liter V6 engine that features a twin turbo.
Drivetrain and Gearbox Heaven
It’s not all about speed and power when it comes to the Stinger. Handling is a top item on the agenda, which is why drivers now have the option of all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. This ensures that the different needs of drivers are addressed as they scale various terrains and navigate through different conditions. All models also feature an eight-speed automatic transmission to ensure comfort during gear changes.
Impeccable Safety Features
It’s not every day that Kia tests a new release at Nürburgring, but the 2018 Kia Stinger is not an everyday car. The track requires an adept driver to navigate the various straights, turns, and hairpins but the handling of the car will determine the safety of the ride. The test reveals the superior staying power of the vehicle on the track despite the massive engine. The car offers an adaptive suspension that provides superior handling during those corners. Other safety features include adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assistance, and automated emergency braking.
A Sleek Interior With High-End Features
If good looks were the only consideration for buying this car, then the 2018 Kia Stinger would sell in droves. Not only does it have all those wonderful things happening under the hood, but it also packs out a number of great features on the interior as well. Sleek lines and impeccable finishes make this a pleasurable and comfortable ride. State-of-the-art technology also allows drivers to enjoy an entertainment-filled ride to make journeys even better.
It is no small wonder that the motoring world is excited about the release of the 2018 Kia Stinger, as it just features every item that drivers would want in their car. With an MSRP of $33,000, it does put it on the higher end of the mid-ranges and with good reason. This puts it in line with other luxury sedans, and there is even room to add in a few extras.
