2018 Kia Stinger Specs And News
The Kia Stinger seems to be a serious competitor of performance; we look forward to driving one. 2018 Kia Stinger seems to be the answer to almost all the dreams of enthusiasts of a compact rear-wheel drive sedan at a price that likely decrease the BMW 3 Series and Cadillac ATS. With Stinger, Kia enters the territory that is new to the Korean brand. Is supposed to be a large passenger car, says Kia, with a continental style and extensive road tests in the difficult Nurburgring in Germany. It’s the intoxicating language of a brand that has only flirted with truly sport-oriented vehicles before, but it has been a long time. The Stinger borrows largely Concept Kia GT, which made its initial debut in 2011, but was then updated several times concept.
A side-by-side comparison of the two Kia sport sedans (GT concept and production model) shows that, in fact, we took elements of the production model design. Suicide door concept of 2018 Kia Stinger is gone, but the high-end trim GT has a look that is both aggressive and elegant. As for the segment, the 2018 Kia Stinger will be one of the biggest cars from there, reaching 190.2 inches (4.8 meters) long and 73.6 inches (1.87 meters) wide. The wheelbase is longer than most, extending 114.4 inches (2.9 meters). This means that the cabin space and cargo should be good, with Kia going so far as to say that the practical open energy of the rear door, should be no problem in getting the same size luggage or even golf bags in the back.
2018 Kia Stinger was tested on the famous Nurburgring test track, and is the first Kia sedan that is offered in both AWD and RWD. The RWD model will feature a mechanical slip differential, while all-wheel drive is equipped with the new Torque Vectoring Control. This system continuously monitors the condition of the roads and the driver’s interventions to ensure that the correct amount of power and braking is applied to the appropriate wheels. The cabin is beautiful and has a lounge outline containing a few touches of Nappa leather. The steering wheel is thick and wrapped in leather, and the dashboard features a combination of analog signals and digital clocks. The use of red on needle counters and a TFT color display showing tower joins the sportiness of the GT. There are several Kia first appearances in 2018 Kia Stinger, as subwoofers mounted under the seat (including the Harman Kardon 15 speaker system options), warning system drivers and electronically adjustable suspension care with five driving modes. The DAA system sounds an audible warning and displays a graph if you notice a decreased level by monitoring the driver’s input attention.
Under its long hood, a 2.0-liter turbo 4 or 3.3-liter V-6 Twin Turbo 2018 drives the Kia Dard. The cylinder 4 is free of 255 horsepower and 260 pounds-feet of torque, the latter of which it comes just 1400 rpm. The V-6, meanwhile, enters an impressive power of 365 and 376 feet of pounds. According to Kia, the 60-ph V-6 function in about 5 seconds, which is fast but looks conservative. An eight-speed automatic transmission will be the only offer. It is a unit in the common home with the car manufacturer K900 sedan and including a pair of pallets mounted behind the steering wheel.
What is the release date of Kia Stinger? 2018 Kia Stinger comes to the US later this year, with announced prices closer to launch.
