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.
The sonorous growl of the Stinger GT's V6 twin-turbocharged engine revving is more than a sign of its well-tuned powertrain. It's a call that beckons drivers to get behind the wheel.
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 the road. And the twin-turbo V6 Stinger GT features 19-inch Michelin® Pilot Sport 4 Summer Tires and a fade-resistant multi-piston Brembo® braking system for consistent high-speed stopping power.
Available Brembo® brakes feature red four-piston front and two-piston rear calipers for outstanding initial bite and precision control.
The lightweight, 19-inch wheel design: made to hug curves and turn heads. Standard on all GT trims.
Available 18-inch all-season tires provide enhanced versatility and impressive performance year-round.
The foundation of an authentic gran turismo begins and ends with outstanding chassis engineering.
Sculpted to be aggressively aerodynamic, from the drag-minimizing A-pillar molding in the front to the kicked-up line at the back, the Stinger is streamlined form that truly functions.
Thoughtful design elements, like integrated front-bumper air curtains that reduce turbulence in the wheel wells, help the Stinger achieve an impressive drag coefficient of .30 Cd.
We incorporated multiple underbody covers to let air exit beneath the Stinger smoothly and efficiently, helping to increase stability especially at higher speeds.
The direct evolution of the GT Concept car, the 2019 Kia Stinger is a dream vehicle come to life. From its fastback proportions and sculpted surfaces, to its driver-oriented interior and refined craftsmanship, the Stinger is uncompromising style designed for a spirited drive.
Authentically a gran turismo from the inside out, the Stinger offers a range of exterior hues and interior trims that embody modern elegance and athleticism.
Kia Motors' Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, and his talented team of designers in Frankfurt obsessed over perfecting the Stinger. They chose refined power and balance to deliver a vehicle with a commanding stance and aggressive proportions.
First looks are lasting. And with available high-glow LED headlights that feature distinctive jewel-like LED turn signals, plus standard LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), the Stinger makes a stunning first impression.
Inspired by the design of iconic sports cars, the Stinger's front fascia and island hood are separated by a single lateral line. This simple line, with its minimal curvature yet voluminous surface, embodies the Stinger's clean aesthetics and quality craftsmanship.
The sleek outside mirrors are aerodynamically engineered to help minimize wind noise, while the available dark-chrome finish complements the sport sedan’s high-performance look.
Four rounded exhaust pipes hint at the horsepower that lies under the hood. Two exhausts on each side of the rear, they create a balanced sportiness and sense of stability—for a commanding presence even during departure.
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.
Longer and wider than a 2018 BMW 4 Gran Coupe, with a longer wheelbase than the 2018 Lexus GS, the Stinger delivers impressive stability and cabin space. Modern metallic elements signal the fastback sedan's bold, sporty design.
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.
Sit in the seat of ultimate refinement. Every interior detail has been exquisitely engineered to deliver sublime sophistication, inspired by aeronautic design, so you can fly down the road in elevated style.
A low-slung seating profile makes you a part of the Stinger’s sleek silhouette, putting you more in tune with the road. And ergonomic, contoured bucket seats embrace your body to cradle you in every curve.
Every accent exudes ultra-modern elegance that reflects the Stinger’s aeronautic influences. From the elevated dash’s wing-like design, to the circular-spoked air vents and floating display screen.
In the Stinger, the exceptional is the rule. Premium materials are infused throughout, from metallic accents and standard leather trimmed seats, to available lush Nappa leather seat trim for superior comfort.
Smart looks deserve smart technology. That's why the 2019 Kia Stinger features technologically advanced systems that provide intuitive connection, exceptional convenience, and more ways to enjoy every drive.
With UVO, convenience and control are at your command. UVO helps you keep track of your Stinger's parking location, driving habits, maintenance requirements and much more.
Positioned between the Stinger's gauges, the available 7" Thin Film Transistor (TFT) LCD screen shows your vehicle and driving information with outstanding clarity—allowing you to monitor everything from g-forces to turbo boost levels.
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.
From precision-built driving tools to a Kia-exclusive connectivity system, the Stinger is advanced technology that has the power to transform the drive—and the driver.
For the audiophile in us all. The available 720-watt Harman/Kardon® QuantumLogic™ Surround Sound System turns miles into music with state-of-the-art audio quality through 15 speakers.
Using radar technology, the standard Blind Spot Collision Warning (BCW) can warn you if it detects a vehicle approaching from behind. When you're reversing out of a parking spot, the standard Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW) can alert you if it senses a vehicle crossing your path.
Share the road with confidence. The available Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go (SCC w/ S&G) capability is designed to automatically slow down and can accelerate from a stop to help maintain a set distance from the vehicle detected in front of you.
If the available Forward Collision Warning (FCW) detects a potential hazard ahead, it can give you an audio and visual alert. And if the Forward Collision Avoidance Assist (FCA) anticipates a front collision, it’s designed to brake automatically.
Designed to help keep you on course, the available Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system will alert you if it notices any unintentional lane drift. And the available Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) system can even help steer your Stinger back into its lane in some situations.
This available system monitors your driving, and if it senses any significant drop in your attention, you’ll be reminded to take a break.
Every Kia reflects our commitment to your safety. The Stinger is no different, from its reinforced frame with strategic application of Advanced High-Strength Steel (AHSS) and hot-stamped panels, to the patented manufacturing technologies used to deliver outstanding durability. The result is a body structure that's lightweight, strong, and remarkably rigid.
Engineered to respond to the road and adapt to the unexpected, the Stinger's advanced safety systems provide enhanced control even in many harsh road conditions. So that you can drive confidently on your journey.
Made to give you and your most precious cargo added peace of mind, the Stinger's advanced airbag system features dual frontal, driver's knee, front-seat-mounted, and side-curtain airbags. For improved protection during certain collisions, sensors are designed to detect the level of an impact and when a passenger is in the front seat.
