The 2018 Kia Stinger GT is an all-new model for the Korean car manufacturer. Featuring an Audi Sportback-like design, it is immediately clear who Kia is looking to challenge. Namely, it’s a sporty sedan with an open cargo space. 

Notable exterior features are the chromed side mirrors and side vents, giving it a distinctive flashiness not seen anywhere else in Kia’s line-up. The headlights also take on an Audi-esque appearance with a string of LEDs lining its Dual-lens full LED headlights.

The design also features an aggressive front end with faux hood vents and a slowly curving rear to accommodate the extra cargo space. More important than its outer appearance is what Kia has put on the inside.

With a 0-60 of only 4.4 seconds, it’s easy to say that the 2018 Kia Stinger GT leaves its competition in the dust. Kia accomplishes this with 365 horsepower supplied by a Twin Turbocharged 3.3L V6 engine and a beautifully tuned automatic 8-speed transmission for noticeably smooth acceleration. Its need for speed is accompanied by Brembo breaks for even quicker stops. 

Given its specifications and design most would be surprised at a starting price tag of only $31k and $50k for the decked out highest trim option.
