Inside, it's a standout.

Get a grip.
That's pure leather.

True Gran Turismo comfort means every inch of this interior is exceptional. The standard leather is anything but standard. It's UV- and durability-tested for comfort you feel the second you sink in. And the steering wheel is leather-wrapped and expertly hand-stitched in an elegant diamond pattern. As if you needed another reason to love taking the wheel.

Your new favorite seat.

Start by selecting from the available leather colors for your trim level. Options include: black, red, light gray, and more. Each piece of available Nappa leather is hand-selected, treated and processed for superior comfort and feel. It's the perfect pairing for luxury trim finishes like upscale piano black or available brushed aluminum.

Launch sequence initiated.

Experience the thrill of driving every time with Stinger's available Launch Control – capable of hurtling you to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds. And with the available built-in G-Force Meter, you'll be able to see the intensity of your acceleration and turns in real-time on the instrument panel. Ready to have some fun?

Advanced amenities.

Stinger is brimming with innovative technology designed to add a new level of Gran Turismo comfort to your drive. On cold days, the available heated steering wheel will warm you up, and in the heat of summer the dual-zone climate control will keep everyone cool to their liking. Add in the advanced UVO infotainment system displayed on an available 8" touchscreen, and you'll be feeling right at home.

Take them with you.

Comfortably fit five in the spacious and luxurious interior. Stinger has a generous 93.8 cu. ft. of passenger space. In the back, over 3' of legroom ensures that your guests are comfortable, while up front you have your own personal space to enjoy long drives and endless adventures.

Bring it.

On typical performance vehicles, trunk space is an afterthought. Stinger is anything but typical. Built for excitement and practicality, Stinger has 23.3 cu. ft. of cargo volume. And with 60/40 rear split folding seats you can add even more – more than enough for your daily use. The fastback design makes the space elegant, smooth and aerodynamic so you don't sacrifice style to bring along that extra suitcase, or two.

That pounding is your heart.

Eye-catching design.

The 2018 Kia Stinger made a strong impression at the North American International Auto Show with two top awards. Cars.com named it Best in Show for its combination of refined style and performance in a sports sedan. It was also recognized with the EyesOn Design award for Production Car Design Excellence. The honor is awarded for the best vehicles making their worldwide debut at the North American International Auto Show.

From concept to concrete.

To bring the 2018 Kia Stinger to life, Kia Motors' chief design officer Peter Schreyer turned to his design team in Frankfurt. But what makes it authentically gran turismo, a car for a spirited long-distance drive? Years of commitment and passion resulting in bold style, nimble performance, and undeniable comfort.

"From its GT concept-car origins to the years of tuning and refining on the legendary Nürburgring circuit, no detail was too small to be obsessed over."

- Orth Hedrick, VP of Product Planning, Kia Motors America

Stunning outside.

The exterior, with its fastback silhouette and sleek rear-wheel-drive proportions, exudes disarming confidence. Longer and wider than a BMW 4 Gran Coupe, with a longer wheelbase than the Lexus GS, it delivers elegance and athleticism. From the back, four oval exhaust pipes show and tell a commanding presence even during departure.

Sleek, sophisticated inside.

Intimate yet expansive. Minimal yet striking. The cocoon-like interior features aircraft-style spoked vents, metal-ringed gauges, and satin chrome trim. Available ultra-soft Nappa leather covers the deeply contoured seats, and the driver's seat has available adjustable bolsters for outstanding comfort.

Exceptional handling.

Albert Biermann, former BMW M Division VP and now head of Kia's Vehicle Test & High Performance Development, and his team developed the superior ride and handling of the 2018 Kia Stinger. Kia's first sedan with available AWD, it has a new Dynamic Stability Damping Control suspension that adapts to your driving.

Heart-pounding performance.

Take your pick of two turbocharged engines, both matched with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The available twin-turbo V6 engine offers over 360 horsepower for a powerful drivetrain that delivers exhilarating performance, optimized fuel efficiency, and a premium sports car feel.
