Introducing the 2019 Kia Stinger

Outperforming the German Competition

The Kia Stinger is the first rear wheel drive sports car from the Korean automotive manufacturer but you couldn't tell by looking at it. Every detail of the sports sedan has been carefully crafted by Albert Biermann and his dedicated team of designers. Albert Biermann is the president of performance and development at Kia after leaving his position as the head of the M-division at BMW Motors (the M Series at BMW is the performance group). Albert is renowned for creating some of the most iconic european sports cars and brought his wealth of knowledge to the design of the Stinger. The result is a masterpiece in design and sport performance.

Stinger Headlights and Front Grill

Aggressive Stance

The front of the Stinger is noticeably sporty and features a long hood with wide body lines that give the sports sedan an aggressive and strong stance. Available are full LED headlights with dual daytime running lights which giving the Stinger a clean modern look all day long. The turning signals are quite unique and are actually made up of a cluster of hexagonal LEDs that pair well with the hexagonal front grill.

Built for Design

The front grill also features two functional air vents that work with the side vents to create an air curtain and reduce drag. Not only do these vents improve the performance, they also add to the "built for speed" design. These air vents are also present on the back of the Stinger but the rear vents don't have any functionality.

Stinger Taillights

Sport-Inspired Diffuser

The back half of the Stinger is also very sporty with dark rear diffuser and chrome quad-exhaust that make the Stinger look like it's ready for the track. Kia also did a great job designing the taillights which help highlight the shape of the vehicle with an LED light that traces the outside shape of the taillight and give the whole rear a high-end appearance.

Dark-Chrome Accents

The exterior accents of the Stinger come in two different chrome options, a normal chrome and a dark chrome that has a bit more of an aggressive look to it. Both options are great but the unique dark chrome has a bit more pop and helps give the Stinger style that stands out.


Kia Stinger Interior Design

Luxurious Materials

The interior of the Stinger has the feel of a high-end luxury vehicle with a clear driver-focused design. The longer wheelbase helps give the Stinger a spacious cabin that can comfortably seat five. The design team spared no detail in making the cabin feel luxurious starting with the high-quality materials used including genuine aluminum trim and soft touch leather.

Attention to Detail

The hand-stitched leather steering wheel is the perfect example of the attention to detail. The layout of the steering wheel brings useful controls right to your fingertips and helps keep your hands on the wheel.

The high-quality materials used are pulled together with a unique hand-stitched diamond stitch that demonstrates the artistry and attention to detail put into the Stinger. The steering wheel has a race-inspired flat bottom design and paddle shifters to take the powerful 8-speed automatic transmission into your own hands.

Spacious Cabin

The spacious interior of the Stinger is not something to overlook. The sports car is incredibly capable with an impressive 93.8 cu.ft. of passenger volume and 23.3 cu.ft. of cargo volume. This gives passengers ample space to get comfortable and the hatchback design allows for plenty of storage.

The Stinger was designed in Frankfurt, Germany and tested nearby at the famous Nürburgring race track. The Kia performance team clearly put an emphasis on track capability and handling even the most challenging roads.

Best car buying experience I've had! The salesperson, Lindsey Butterfield, responded promptly to all my questions, was friendly, knowledgeable and did not pressure me. He delivered the car right to our hours (2 hours away!), worked with my schedule, and provided information and photos over email or phone. Lindsey was great! Thank you!
