Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi A4 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Kia Stinger with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Kia Stinger will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A4.

Convenience
The Audi A4 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia Stinger, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Stinger. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A4 and the Kia Stinger have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A4 is a little narrower than the Kia Stinger, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Audi A4 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Stinger.

Handling
The Audi A4 has a larger turning radius than the Kia Stinger, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A4 is significantly less powerful than the Kia Stinger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The Audi A4 has much less torque than the Kia Stinger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A4 and the Kia Stinger. The Audi A4 has significantly less cargo room than the Kia Stinger, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi A4 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Stinger.
