2018 Kia Stinger Debuts as RWD Sports Sedan-Shaped Middle Finger to German Rivals



Quote:
Kia may already have the best debut of the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, and the show hasnt even officially started yet: The new Stinger sports sedan is finally here and it packages 365 horsepower in a fun-to-drive chassis and wraps it in a surprisingly sexy exterior.

Drawing inspiration from the Kia GT Concept that was first seen six years ago, the 2018 Kia Stinger is a rear-wheel-drive based luxury sedan that was honed on the grueling Nurburgring racetrack. It is one of the most exciting debuts from Kia in a long time and is being hailed as the sportiest and quickest Kia yet.

Kia is offering two engines in the Stinger, both mated to eight-speed automatic transmissions. Both engines are available on rear-drive and AWD models. The base engine is a turbocharged four-cylinder unit that makes an estimated 255 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The optional engine is a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6, which is expected to make 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque. Kia hopes the Stinger will hit 62 mph in just 5.1 seconds and achieve a top speed of 167 mph with the V6 engine.

They (the media) are telling us that it WILL be coming to Australia in September '17 - don't be teasing now guys - JUST BRING IT!
Looks and sounds fabulous (on paper/screen) so hopefully we get it as suggested, just as it is.

Old enough to know better . . . . too old to care!
