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

Article by Christian A., on November 27, 2017

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.

As for the exterior finish, customers can choose from six different options to paint their 2018 Kia Stinger GT2. The interior of the base model gets a single interior modification. The Stinger Premium, on the other hand, is available in two interior options.

The range-topping GT2 already includes features like full LED headlights. There is even a Nappa leather upholstery in the interior, as well as an eight-inch infotainment system with Harman/Kardon stereo. Inside, there is a heated steering wheel, 16-way power adjustable seat with two-way side bolster adjustments and thigh cushion extension for the driver, as well as 12 way power adjustments for the passenger.

Of course, there are safety features that come standard including the blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic warning, forward collision avoidance, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, driver attention, warning and park distance monitoring.

Just like most vehicles currently available, the Kia Stinger will be offering a ton of options. One of them includes the remote push start for $495, puddle lights for $240, mud guards for $95 and a cargo mat for $50. If you decide to tick all the possible options of the Kia Stinger at the range-topping GT2 trim, be ready to shell out as much as $53,965.

According to some reviews we have read, the Stinger would be a great alternative to BMW and Mercedes Benz sport sedans. And of course, its reasonable price range is a huge plus too.

What would be the ideal Kia Stinger for you, in terms of trim, colour and interior, and of course, the add-ons?
