2018 Kia Stinger can now be configured online, choose from 5 trim levels

Don’t you agree that the most exciting thing to do before actually driving your new car is playing with the configurator? After reading and watching countless reviews about the 2018 Kia Stinger, we can finally create our dream Stingers through Kia’s official configuration tool.

For the United States market, Kia will be offering five different trim levels to customers. The entry level model, or the “Stinger”, starts at $31,900. It is powered by a 2.0-liter inline-four cylinder with as much as 255 horsepower (190 kilowatts) that’s paired with an eight-speed automatic. The next trim would be the Premium, which comes with the same four-cylinder engine as the base trim.

The three other models will be the GT, GT1, and GT2 - and these are also the most popular versions that all feature a 3.3 liter V6 with 365 horsepower (272 kilowatts). If you prefer an all-wheel drive over a rear-wheel drive, you can buy an upgrade worth $2,200 throughout the entire lineup.

Customized Kia Cadenza, Stinger will impress you at 2017 SEMA Show

Car manufacturers have been boasting a lot of interesting cars and concepts at the ongoing 2017 SEMA Show. From BMW’s M5 Performance Parts, Chevrolet’s cool new software update for the Corvette, and Kia’s good-looking trio. Yes, even Kia stepped up their game and made a noise at SEMA, by bringing along two hot Stingers and an all-black Cadenza.

Let us get into more detail about each car beginning with the wide body Stinger. As you can see in the photo, it had been hand crafted by the people at West Coast Customs. And if you know something about car history, you would notice a slight resemblance between the custom Stinger and the GT cars of the 1970s. But despite the same wide body treatment that it got, it still has Kia’s already aggressive design.

The Stinger rides on a set of 21-inch Keen forged wheels paired with high performance tires. It also sits on a lowered suspension (by 1.4 inches up front, and 1.2 inches in the rear), and is finished in layers of pearl blue metallic paint. The body has a lightweight carbon fiber aero kit and a rear diffuser to keep the sedan close to the ground. Inside is a driver-centric cockpit with bright blue leather piping that match the handmade grey leather seats.

2018 Kia Stinger priced from $32,795 (Base) to $51,000 (GT2)

Pricing for the hot hatch sedan was updated only recently but may still be subject to change before the car hits US dealerships by the end of the year. As it goes, the base Stinger 2.0T should come with a sticker price of $31,900 plus destination charge of $895. That’s a total of $32,795 for the lowest-priced 2018 Kia Stinger in the lineup which has the standard 255hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

Pricing for the rest of the variants will go up from here starting with the Kia Stinger Premium 2.0T at $37,000, this is followed by the GT 3.3T at $39,000. Next is the more potent GT1 3.3T at $43,500 and last but definitely not the least is the GT2 3.3 T variant that you can have for $49,500. Again, destination charge for each car will cost you around $895 plus additional $2,200 for an AWD setup for all models.

The loaded version is packed with 3.3-liter V6 engine that produces a powerful output of 365hp (272kW) and 376lb-ft (509 Nm) of torque. Marry this to an eight-speed automatic with paddle shifters and the sedan hatch could go from a zero to 60mph (96km/h) in as fast as 4.7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 167mph (268 km/h). The eight speed AT gearbox is the only option for transmission and will come as standard for Stinger’s entire range.

Prototypes of the Kia Stinger took on the Nurburgring with 480 laps of hard testing

Kia is taking things a step further with the new Kia Stinger, which they first introduced at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. With the specs given to us by the company, it seems like the sports sedan will be at par with Mercedes and BMW’s new offerings.

Firstly, the said model has been equipped with a powerful 3.3 liter biturbo V6 engine, which is capable of producing as much as 365 horsepower (272 kilowatts). To prove those numbers, the company decided to take the Stinger out for a drive at no other than the Nurburgring. One thing we know is that only the good sports sedans head to that track to prove themselves worthwhile.

So, the Kia Stinger proved itself right as it went through 480 laps and over 6,200 miles (10,000 kilometers) around the Nurburgring in a span of a few weeks. But that’s not all, as the diesel-powered Stinger also sprinted around the Green Hell for double the distance - that is 12,400 miles (20,000 kilometers). We owe thanks to the Kia designers and engineers for ensuring that the aerodynamically sport sedans were made to perform as we expect them to. With all that mileage used up during the test phase, we are pretty confident with the Kia Stinger’s stamina.

The 2017 Detroit Auto Show (2017 North American International Auto Show) has been exciting and thrilling. Several new concepts and production vehicles were announced and unveiled, with a number of reveals proving to be stunning as well as exciting. One of these reveals is a sedan from South Korea – the new Kia Stinger that will be offered as a 2018 model.

Intended and offered as a five-occupant fastback sports sedan, the Kia Stinger was one of the highlights at the Detroit Auto Show, thanks to its one-of-a-kind GT design and the promise of power for its future endeavors. Many are already expecting resounding success for the Kia Stinger even before the South Korean carmaker has commenced its sales.

Its stunning looks perhaps could be one of the reasons why X-Tomi Design, an auto styling specialist from Tard, Hungary has chosen it as the subject of its new rendition project. Perhaps mesmerized by its evolutionary appearance, X-Tomi Design rendered not only one, but two versions of the Kia Stinger fastback sedan. In a sense, X-Tomi Design is helping us find out how Kia Stinger fastback sedan would have looked like when created as another body style – a coupe and a wagon (estate) in particular.

After showing its first concept in 2011 in Frankfurt, Germany, it has always been Kia’s wish to launch a GT production vehicle. After over 5 years, the Korean automaker this year introduces the “Stinger”, Kia’s production-ready Gran Turismo model.

Interestingly, the 2018 Kia Stinger is almost similar to the GT4 Stinger it introduced in 2014 at the North American International Auto Show. It’s as if history keeps on repeating itself as Kia is now once again embarking on great things in Detroit.

The 2018 Kia Stinger is probably the largest one in the segment, considering its measurements are at 4.8 meters long and 1.87 meters wide. Also at 2.9 meters, the new Kia sedan probably has the longest wheelbase since it is longer than any other competing models. In other words, this would be an advantage as far as cargo and cabin space is concerned. Likewise, Kia reassures everyone that the Stinger has enough room for your golf bags and luggage. It even has the handy power lift gate for added convenience.
