2018 Kia Stinger

The 2018 Kia Stinger GT sports sedan


Albert Biermann, head of Kia's Vehicle Test & High Performance Development and former BMW M Division VP, and his talented team of engineers were committed to perfecting the Stinger's ride and handling. The result is finely-tuned chassis feedback, high levels of lateral grip, and smooth power delivery. Take your pick between the 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine or the 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Each paired with a gearing-optimized version of Kia's next-gen 8-speed automatic transmission for fast, seamless shifting and decisive acceleration. It's refined power at any speed.

Stun the competition.

More powerful than the BMW 440i Gran Coupe and Audi S5 Sportback, with a higher top speed and faster 0-60 mph than many sports sedans, the Stinger GT continues to stun the competition. The proof is all in the numbers. The Stinger's eye-catching alloy wheels are engineered to conquer any road. And the twin-turbo V6 Stinger GT features 19-inch Michelin® Pilot Sport 4S Summer Tires and a fade-resistant multi-piston Brembo® braking system for consistent high-speed stopping power.


Smart looks deserve smart technology. That's why the 2018 Kia Stinger features technologically advanced systems that provide intuitive connection, exceptional convenience, and more ways to enjoy every drive. Experience next-level innovations that reimagine what a journey can be. The Stinger offers seamless, intuitive technology built with the driver always in mind.


Taking in-car tech to the next level, every Stinger features a floating color touch-screen display with stunning visibility. Standard UVO eServices with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capability offers convenient smartphone connectivity.


The Stinger's available Shift-By-Wire (SBW) gear control lets you change transmission modes through electronic controls rather than a mechanical linkage. For modern gear selection and a more refined drive.


Clari-Fi™ sound-enhancing technology works in real time to restore audio details lost in digitally-compressed music. The result is dramatically clear music at all the right levels.

Destined To Move

The fastback silhouette features a long hood, deeply-raked windshield, and low-slung cabin, giving the appearance of motion even when still. At the front, you'll find Kia's signature tiger-nose grille with distinctive honeycomb detailing.

A Confident Stance

Longer and wider than a BMW 4 Gran Coupe, with a longer wheelbase than the Lexus GS, the Stinger delivers impressive stability and cabin space. Modern metallic elements signal the fastback sedan's bold, sporty design.

Alluring Exits

Depart in style with the Stinger's unique LED tail-light design, dual twin exhausts, and aggressive rear fender. Visually stunning from all angles, sculpted to cut through air, the Stinger merges high performance with beautiful design.
