2018 stinger on road

2018 Kia Stinger performance expresses a new paradigm of gran turismo. It’s confident whether on the track or on the road, and it’s been test-driven by SCCA Championship winners at the former Marine Corps Air Station El Toro to ensure it speaks to your inner driver.

More than a way to make it from A to B, Kia Stinger performance highlights include:

  • Two Turbocharged Engines
  • Zero to 60 MPH in 4.7 seconds
  • All-Wheel Drive (AWD) w/ Electronically-Controlled Transfer Case
  • Dynamic Torque Vectoring Control

Kia Stinger Engines

Commanding power is at the core of each Kia Stinger model, and you’ll have the freedom to choose between two turbocharged power plants:

  • 2.0L Twin Scroll Turbocharged 4-Cylinder: Makes up to 255 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.
  • 3.3L Twin Turbocharged V6: Makes up to 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque.

Calling on such a phenomenal output allows the Kia Stinger to make zero to 60 MPH in as little as 4.7 seconds, which puts it ahead of several established luxury nameplates:

  • 2018 BMW 440i Gran Coupe: 4.8 seconds
  • 2018 Porsche Panamera RWDV6: 5.4 seconds.
  • 2018 BMW 640i Gran Coupe: 5.4 seconds

Kia Stinger Efficiency

Just a glance at the Kia Stinger’s perfectly sculpted body is enough to show that aerodynamics were a priority, and your engine output will be flawlessly refined through an 8-speed automatic transmission.

That might be why MPG ratings remain so competitive despite the vehicle’s muscle:

  • Four-Cylinder: Up to 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with RWD or 21 and 29 with AWD.
  • V6: Up to 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
