Video | 2018 Kia Stinger: Must Test Drive

The 2018 Kia Stinger is a rear- or all-wheel-drive turbocharged performance sedan from … Kia. It’s a shock for anyone who’s spent much time in an Infiniti Q50 or a Lexus IS, as the Stinger doesn’t seem too far removed from those vehicles — except, you know, it’s a Kia. Said Autotrader’s executive editor Brian Moody, “Once you get over the shock that you’re driving a Kia, you’re left with a very good, very attractive sport sedan.” Our managing editor Tara Trompeter echoed the sentiment, noting that “the Stinger looks GOOD,” and predicting that “this sport sedan will definitely change the way you think about Kias in general.” And we’re not just talking about the top-level Stinger GT, which starts around $39,400, and features a muscular 365 horsepower. Even the base-level Stinger, with its $33,000 starting price and 255 horsepower, is a potent vehicle with excellent performance and a high-quality interior. As our associate editor Rob Nestora put it: “It’s fast. It’s striking. It’s luxurious. It’s practical. It needs to be in my driveway.”
