Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Avalon Hybrid than the Kia Stinger, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, the Kia Stinger may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Toyota Avalon Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Kia Stinger, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). The Kia Stinger is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Kia Stinger will cost more in transportation costs than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Kia Stinger is a little wider than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Kia Stinger is slightly shorter than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Kia Stinger does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Handling
The Kia Stinger has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Stinger has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Kia Stinger and the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Kia Stinger will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Stinger than that of the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.
