Sports Car from Kia? A look at the new Stinger GT

Kia has plenty of models to choose from, but they never really had a model for the sports car enthusiast…until now. The Kia Stinger GT has sports car written all over it and its engine? it’s nothing to yawn at that’s for sure!

So whats in store for those that jump behind the seat of the 2018 Kia Stinger GT? For starters a 3.3L V-6 engine, with an 8-speed automatic variable valve control transmission. Add to that a twin turbo, and rear wheel, limited slip differential, and you have yourself the makings of a great car. According to my husband, my resident sports car guy, the Kia Stinger is right up there with some of the best stock sports cars on the market.

As far as he is concerned, when your car comes stock, with performance parts that most people can only get with aftermarket parts, you found the right car!

But what about safety? when a car comes with this type of performance power, safety is always the main concern. Well, Kia thought about that as well. Blind Spot Detection; Rear Collision Alerts; front and rear anti-roll bars; and all around airbags, are all part of the safety package.

Think they forgot about comfort? Not a chance! The Kia Stinger comes with heated front seats, power seats, a navigation system, and telescoping sports steering wheel. In addition to, a power moonroof, and remote keyless entry.

The Stinger GT has 3 different trim models available…the GT, GT1, and GT2. Just look at the beauty of this GT2 available at Metro Kia

As you can see this beauty is 4 door sedan; you get all of the performance of a great sports car, but with the safety and room of a family sedan. Makes perfect sense to me! I think Kia really outdid themselves with this one.

So why not stop by your local Kia dealership, and let the team know that you want to power, performance, and safety, of the 2018 Kia Stinger GT
