Prepare to be enraptured by Kia’s new Stinger

Written by: Neil

It's been a long time coming, but Kia has unveiled a mammoth new release to kickstart 2017, with the announcement of its long-awaited Stinger GT.

Stealing the limelight at this year's North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), the Stinger is a five-seat fastback sports saloon that will be coming to buyers across the globe in 2018!

Featuring a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder Theta II engine as standard, capable of delivering 225bhp, the model is no slouch when it comes to performance.

Meanwhile, the Stinger offers some stunning good looks through its sleek and low-slung front end that all petrolheads are sure to love.

It's also a testament to the vision of Kia's design team that this new model has put in the rest of the new releases at the NAIAS in the shade.

Indeed, Orth Hedrick, vice president for product planning at Kia Motors America, explained: "Unlike any Kia that has come before it, the Stinger really is a dream car for us, and here in Detroit, that dream is now a reality after years of commitment and hard work."

Stephen Hasley, brand manager at Petrol News, adds: "Kia really have outdone themselves with the new Stinger, with its elegant styling, impressive statistics and all-round appeal."
