A Attention Grabber

Reviewed by Jersey Stinger 1965
September 02, 2020

I use this Stinger as a weekend warrior. Got the aurora black and after a couple of weeks tinted out all the windows, blacked out back lights and replaced kia badges on hubcaps and steering wheel with GT emblems and front badge with K emblem. People have walked up to ask what make is this and most have never heard of it. Had strangers ask if they can sit in it and then floored with all the gadgets and comfort. unless you drive its hard to explain but test driving a Audi and BMW there is small difference but price is large when you get to fully loaded cars. 0 to 75 not many cars so far have kept up but after that the bigger V8 will outrun you. The stinger is a bullet off the line. With more aftermarket products now out you can boost HP and torqe up and some nice cosmetics. After 2 months of driving only seen a handful at jersey shore and none looking like mine so its nice being different.Its a real looker. looking for luxury and speed for 50k this is the bomb

Exciting Sedan on Steroids

Still too new to make any true observations positive or negetive. So far the car is everything we had hoped for, a sexy sporty cruiser with power. Can't say enough about the stereo and it's loud thumping vibes with crystal clear highs thanks to the 15 Harmon Kardon speakers. I have noticed a ticking sound under the hood, and after researching this I have been reassured that this noise is the High Pressure Fuel Pump I can almost see the Michelin Sport 4s wearing down much faster than I would like. For those who choose to do oil changes themselves be patient as you need to remove 2 panels with Gazillion screws and plastic snaps to remove and then reattach. However the tiny little oil filter is easy access and requires some force to remove the filter from its plastic "egg". As well you need to give it a good force to snap the new one into place. Things I love - stereo , power , heated / Cooling leather seats , steering wheel feel/control , short stopping distances under high speed. Dislikes - tire wear , ticking motor , low stance ( can be a bit of a challenge getting in and out for those like me in your 50s ! )

Best driving experience I've had

This car is simply amazing. The multiple drive modes allows the car to keep up with my driving style on the fly. I can switch to sport mode if I want more performance based driving or into eco mode if I'm cruising on the highway and want the best for efficiency. The seats are very comfortable with adjustable bolstering on the driver side. The infotainment system is responsive and easy to use. I just love this car so much!!

When you still want a sports car, but need a functional back seat and trunk, the Stinger is by far the best bang for your buck.

This car has power, style, and so many extras that I am still finding out more about what my car can do every day. It feels like I am in complete control even while I am pushing it to the max. It does not get shaky at all at high speeds or around sharp curves. It gives me a feeling of complete confidence and safety while I am driving it!

A+ for style, performance, comfort & affordability

I feel like I am driving a premium German car with less dated looks and superb performance. Interior could be a little more quality but still cushy. For so much less money than the Europeans who cares as the the difference is negligible. Love the hatch as I can get so much in the back there. 2020 GT2 AWD Get one before they become extinct as the vehicle is ahead of its time for KIA.

Awesome grand touring/sports sedan

Absolutely LOVE the Stinger GT AWD!! It has everything i wanted in a car...comfort, gorgeous looks inside and out, quality, room, features, safety, great handling, and speed. This car is FAST!! I've had everything from sporty cars to true sports sedans to muscle cars and this car is a perfect blend of all of them. KIA nailed this one. Truly unbelievable what you get for the price. Will never own another BMW or sports sedan as long as KIA continues to make this car. If you're considering a sports sedan, or even a two door performance coupe, do yourself a favor and add this to your list, you'll be blown away.

FANTASTIC Car for Fewer Dollar

I went from a 2018 Audi S5 convertible to my new Kia and I am ecstatic with my choice. My new car handles like a vehicle costing 75K or more, has power to spare, an interior worthy of a far more expensive vehicle and leased for one half of what I expected to pay. Do t let the Kia nameplate turn you off. Drive the car; you will love it!
