GT1 and GT2 trims have forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection (which really should be standard), adaptive cruise control with stop/go, lane-keeping assistance/lane departure warning, and driver attention monitoring. In crash testing, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the Stinger a maximum 5-star rating overall, with four stars for front impact protection and five for side impacts. After earning top scores in the major crashworthiness categories, the Stinger was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), providing it has all the collision avoidance systems and the upgraded LED headlights.
2022 Kia Stinger vs the competition
2021 Audi A5/S5 Sportback— The A5 and S5 Sportback cars are the Stinger’s intended targets. They’re close in body style and performance.
2021 Dodge Charger— Perhaps an
Acura TLX or
Infiniti Q50 would be a more logical alternative, but with rear-wheel drive, high-powered engines, flashy styling and budget pricing, the
Charger could scratch the same kind of itch as the Stinger.
Used Audi A7— The sleek proportions, size and hatchback trunk of the A7 might well have been the inspiration behind the Kia Stinger. It’s far more expensive, though, so consider a used or certified pre-owned example.
