The Kia Stinger GT Is Already Becoming a Used Bargain

Here’s great news for car enthusiasts on a budget: the Kia Stinger GT is already becoming a bit of a used car bargain. A brand-new Stinger GT starts at $40,000 with no options, while a desirable “GT2” model is $51,000 with shipping and before options. But if you buy used, you can get a much better deal for the Stinger GT, which uses Kia’s impressive 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 with 365 horsepower.

First off, it’s worth noting that the Stinger is, like all Kia models, offered with Kia’s certified pre-owned warranty, meaning you can get a used one with the same 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty as a new model — and a similar bumper-to-bumper warranty, too. Although there are only 44 certified pre-owned Kia Stinger models in dealership inventories as I write this, that number will only increase as more of these get out in the world — and, of course, as values go down.

Narrowing the search to the fully-equipped GT2 model, however, really shows you what a bargain the Stinger is. There are just 12 certified pre-owned Stinger GT2 models on Autotrader, but the cheapest ones are under $40,000 with around 9,000 miles — meaning you get the same warranty as a new model, you get a vehicle that’s only been out a year, and you pay the “base-level” new car price for a fully-equipped example. It’s a bargain.

And, indeed, it’s such a bargain that there isn’t a single certified pre-owned Stinger GT2 on Autotrader right now for more than $43,000, which — again — is a big discount from new. As buyers gravitate towards SUVs, sedans seem to be depreciating quicker than usual — and that’s good news for shoppers who want to pick up a Kia Stinger on the used market.

  1. I just got a base stinger GT with the $2,000 safety convenience/ drive assist package for 28k with 24k miles. Yea its not fully loaded with that means its lighter and less to go wrong in the future like the power lift hatch. Its really easy already to open and close.
