August 24th, 2017 by


If you are looking for a truly unique, powerful, and stylish sports car, the Kia Stinger’s 2018 edition might be something to watch out for. With a GT style body, elegant lines, plenty of comfort, and enough horse power to tour the entire country, it is one of Kia’s most remarkable creations. Find out below what the best features of the 2018 Kia Stinger are.

Head-Turning Design

The 2018 Kia has truly entered the competition in the luxury GT market, with its advanced design and elegant comfort. The new Stinger is lively and energetic, with great aerodynamics. It has a longer wheel base than the Lexus GS, and is larger than similar GT models. The interior of the car matches the stylish grill at the front, with satin chrome trim. The Kia Stinger 2018 will surely turn some heads when you drive down the road. The car’s design picked up two awards at the American International Auto Show when it was introduced to experts.

True Rear Drive or All Wheel Drive Options

You can select the true rear wheel drive option, or opt for the all-wheel-drive design. Either way, you will get exceptionally good handling, thanks to the new Dynamic Stability Damping Control suspension system that adapts to the driver’s style. To get an even better stability, buyers can upgrade to the limited-slip differential option on the rear drive models. The all-wheel-drive models come with a torque-vectoring system, to ensure that the power is equally and efficiently distributed while driving.

To provide you with increased driving control and stability, all models come with a MacPherson front and multi-link rear suspension. The power steering system has eight different modes.

Affordable Luxury All Around

Inside the car, you will find genuine Nappa leather, and leather-covered steering wheels, along with the Harman/Kardon 15-speaker infotainment system and the touch screen control that allows you to monitor lap times, performance, fuel economy, and many more technical data from the driving seat.

Advanced Safety Technology

Apart from the basic adaptive emergency braking and blind spot monitoring you might be used to in modern cars, you will find advanced technology to keep you and your passengers safe on your travels. All models include the Driver Attention Alert, the rear cross traffic monitoring system, advanced smart cruise control for a convenient drive, and a fatigue sensor that notices when the driver needs a break.

Improved Powertrain for a Sporty Drive

The powerful 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine delivers 255 hp, or you can upgrade to the V6 3.3-liter version, which produces 365 hp. The 8-speed automatic transmission allows drivers to choose among five modes. The car speeds up from zero to 62 in just 5.1 seconds. Fuel efficiency is automatically optimized for the terrain and speed.

If you are looking for a large GT that provides you advanced safety and powerful performance every time, you might need to hold off until December of this year to take a first look at the Kia Stinger, but it will be well worth the wait!
