Kia Stinger

Kia makes good on bringing its concepts to life, and the Stinger is the real-life incarnation of the GT and GT4 concepts. The hot take? Kia’s aspirations of having a BMW fighter remain… aspirational. It looks great in photos, but Kia has some way to go in delivering a completely clean design. More than anything, though, the Stinger is a sexy, robust look at where Kia is going. Both of its two engines — a 2.0-liter turbo four or a 365-hp, 3.3-liter turbo V-6 good for over 165 mph — are indications Kia is focused on performance. The Stinger is a sedan you’d want to ogle through your kitchen window. Expect interior styling and quality that rivals Audi’s, with an optional high-output Harman Kardon sound system.
