Which Stinger is the Best?

If you're just looking for a cool, fun-to-drive car with lots of space and equipment, you really don't need anything more than the Stinger GT-Line. The GT1 is probably the smartest bet among the V6-powered models. Sure, if you've got the cash for the GT2, go for it, but the GT1's adaptive suspension and ample extra niceties make it a good compromise. Find a Kia Stinger for sale

How Much Does a 2020 Kia Stinger Cost?

The 2020 Kia Stinger is available in four trim levels: the 4-cylinder-powered GT-Line and the V6-powered GT, GT1 and GT2. All can be optioned with AWD for an extra $2,200. All pricing listed below includes a $995 destination charge.

The base Stinger GT-Line ($33,895) is very well equipped. It comes standard with 18-in wheels, black chrome exterior trim, metal sport pedals, a temporary spare tire, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, automatic headlights, LED running lights, heated power-folding mirrors, proximity entry and push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, wireless charging, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning, heated 8-way power front seats (with 4-way driver lumbar), leather upholstery, a heated leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 7-in touchscreen, three USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, UVO eServices emergency communications, a 6-speaker sound system with satellite and HD Radio, an auxiliary audio jack and a media player interface.

The Stinger GT ($39,500) effectively reverts to the base equipment level but adds the more powerful engine, 19-in wheels, launch control, electronic limited-slip rear differential, variable ratio steering, a different exterior trim and an aluminum interior trim. Exceptions would include standard bi-LED headlights and a 9-speaker sound system.

It also adds an adaptive suspension and auto-dimming exterior mirrors.

The Stinger GT2 ($50,300) includes the heated outboard rear seats, a Surround View monitor plus a limited-slip differential, an electronic shifter, a power hatchback, a 12-way power driver seat with adjustable side bolsters and thigh extension, 4-way passenger lumbar, ventilated front seats, premium Nappa leather and a head-up display.

2020 Kia Stinger vs the competition

2020 Buick Regal Sportback -- Comparable in price and trunk design, the Regal Sportback lines up well with the base Stinger in most respects, but even the Regal GS can't match the GT's power. This is another good choice for those seeking a more budget-friendly alternative to European luxury models.

2020 Audi A5 and A5 Sportback -- As for European luxury models, the A5 and A5 Sportback are effectively the targets the Stinger is intended to hit. They line up well in terms of body style and performance. Read our Stinger review to know more about how it stacks up against these Audis.

2020 Dodge Charger -- Perhaps something like an Acura TLX or an Infiniti Q50 would be a more logical "competitor," but with its rear-wheel drive, high-powered engines, flashy styling and budget pricing, the Charger sure seems like more of a spiritual equal to the Stinger.

Used Audi A7 -- With its sleek proportions, comparable size and hatchback trunk, the A7 is arguably the car that inspired the Stinger. It's far more expensive, however, so you might consider a used or certified pre-owned one.
