5 Things We Learned About the 2018 Kia Stinger

Jan 13, 2017 - 1:13 PM - by

Kia unveiled the new Stinger sport sedan at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show and it ushered in a new era for the Korean automaker.

Targeting a whole new tier of performance and luxury, the Stinger has a lot going for it. Under the hood, two engines are being offered: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 255 hp or an awesome twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 engine that will make 365 hp. With a zero-to-62-mph time of about 5 seconds, itís easy to see why people are getting so excited.

We had a chance to speak with two important figures at Kia: Peter Schreyer, the brandís chief designer, who oversaw the design of the Stinger, and Albert Beirmann, executive VP of vehicle testing and high-performance development at Kia Motors. Both shared details about the Stinger, its development, and its place in the Kia lineup.

2018 Kia Stinger Debuts as RWD Sports Sedan-Shaped Middle Finger to German Rivals

Jan 09, 2017 - 8:59 AM - by

Kia may already have the best debut of the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, and the show hasnít even officially started yet: The new Stinger sports sedan is finally here and it packages 365 horsepower in a fun-to-drive chassis and wraps it in a surprisingly sexy exterior.

Drawing inspiration from the Kia GT Concept that was first seen six years ago, the 2018 Kia Stinger is a rear-wheel-drive based luxury sedan that was honed on the grueling Nurburgring racetrack. It is one of the most exciting debuts from Kia in a long time and is being hailed as the sportiest and quickest Kia yet.

Kia is offering two engines in the Stinger, both mated to eight-speed automatic transmissions. Both engines are available on rear-drive and AWD models. The base engine is a turbocharged four-cylinder unit that makes an estimated 255 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The optional engine is a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6, which is expected to make 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque. Kia hopes the Stinger will hit 62 mph in just 5.1 seconds and achieve a top speed of 167 mph with the V6 engine.

2017 Kia Optima: Car of the Year Contender

Dec 12, 2016 - 4:57 PM - by gathered six of the most significant new cars for the 2017 model year for our annual Car of the Year evaluations. This year, our contenders are the Hyundai Elantra, BMWM2, Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, 2017 Kia Optima, Ford Focus RS and Chevrolet Cruze. There was no hard price cap on this yearís entrants, but we tried to make sure none of them were extravagantly priced. We will release a new video on each contender every day leading up to Dec. 13, when we announce our winner. Stay tuned for our Crossover/SUV of the Year and Truck of the Year series, which is also coming soon!

The 2017 Kia Optima is an important sedan for the Korean automaker, as the popular family sedan is a great showcase for how the brand is trying to move upmarket. New for 2017, there is also a hybrid andplug-in hybrid model, both of which are treated to the full redesign that its gas-powered sibling got, making the Optima lineup one of the most significantly changed for the 2017 model year.

Bringing the fire to such strong cars as the Honda Accord and Nissan Maxima, the new Optima boasts one of the classiest interiors in the segment, looking much more expensive than it actually is. The quilted leather seats, aluminum trim, and the fantastic flat-bottomed steering wheel all add up to a premium-feeling cabin that is well built.

The 2017 Kia Optima lineup backs up its premium aspirations with a whole suite of available technology such as lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring and, of course, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
