Kia Stinger Due for Late 2017 Launch

The stylish New Kia Stinger sports coupé is available to order now and goes on sale on 1st January 2018 costing from £31,995 to £40,495.

Kia’s first rear-wheel-drive car in the UK is largely based on the GT concept which was unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

How does it look?

The design is said to be very similar to that of the GT concept and has been approved by design chief Peter Schreyer. The sleek styling and low profile is reminiscent of the classic Porsche silhouette. A five-seat fastback sports saloon, the sleek-looking Stinger has powerful, muscular styling with a long bonnet and a short front overhang. The wide grille gives the front end an aggressive appearance which coupled with the sporty detailing provides an imposing presence.

How fast is it?

Covering 0-60mph in just 4.7 seconds with a 365bhp, 3.3-litre, turbocharged V6 engine, it is the fastest accelerating Kia ever built and has a top speed of 168mph. Three turbocharged engines, all with an eight-speed auto gearbox, will be available. With luxurious options too, this engine line-up is a promising start for Kia’s first performance car!

Where next for Kia?

The GT is just the beginning of Kia’s ambitious high performance plans. A convertible version of the GT coupé is very much part of the plan. The stunning GT4 Stinger has also been earmarked for a 2017 release. A two-seater, rear-wheel drive concept, the GT4 Stinger design looks as though it would be at home launching into space. It features clean minimalist lines and a single, wraparound piece of tinted glass making up the windscreen and windows.
