Seven years in the making, the 2018 Kia Stinger is a force to be reckoned with and one you just have to take out for a joyride. The Stinger is packed with a full suite of technology, comfort, and safety features, but its most significant attribute is its ability to deliver adrenaline-pumping performance every time you step on the gas pedal.
Born from the Kia GT Concept that debuted in 2011, and it has been available at your local Kia dealership since late 2017. For more details on this sport sedan’s performance capabilities, read on.
Power and Performance You Have to See to Believe
Stay On the Edge of Your Seat
Topping out at 167 mph, the 2018 Kia Stinger’s 3.3L Twin Turbo Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) V6 engine generates an impressive 365 horsepower, and it delivers 376 lb.-ft. of torque. That’s enough for the prized pushed-back-in-your-seat sensation that takes every drive to the next level.
Hold Onto Your Hat
Would you believe us if we told you that Stinger’s V6 is faster than the 2018 Audi A7 Sportback AWD, BMW 640i Gran Coupe, and 2017 Porsche Panamera V6 RWD? It is.
The 2018 Kia Stinger does the 0 – 60 sprint in only 4.7 seconds. That’s an entire second quicker than the 2018 Audi A5 Sportback and fast enough to get your heart pounding in a flash.
Engineered for Forward Momentum
With an aggressively aerodynamic design, the Stinger was made to perform. Standard on the V6 Stinger GT, lightweight, 19-inch wheels are crafted to hug every curve on the journey and turn every head along the way. Available 19-inch Michelin Pilot Sport 4 Summer Tires help you maximize the performance of your Stinger, while the fade-resistant, multi-piston Brembo® braking system offers high-speed stopping power to keep you in control.
Drive Mode Select
Whether you take the scenic route or stay on course, you’ll get to your destination one way or another. And with standard Drive Mode Select, you can choose exactly how you get there.
Five drive modes adjust the engine, transmission, suspension and steering for a custom driving experience. For instance, Eco Mode helps maximize fuel economy on your journey by adjusting idle speed, RPM levels and more. On the other hand, Sport Mode with Launch Control maintains optimal torque delivery and lessens wheel-slip for efficient, yet exhilarating, power.
