What's New For The 2019 Kia Stinger?

The 2019 model year welcomes back the Stinger-a great-looking five-door compact premium fastback from Kia Motors-for its second model year. There are a lot of changes to make it a more worthwhile choice in the luxury small car market. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are now standard on all trims. A mechanical differential is now standard on GT model-that is, if it comes with a rear-wheel-drive system. The Premium and GT1 trims have a full suite of safety systems. Finally, the GT2 trim receives a surround-view camera and heated rear seats.

Kia Stinger Power & Performance

2019 Kia Stinger Exterior FrontThe base-level 2.0L trim of the 2019 Kia Stinger is named after its twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine, which supplies 255 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This same engine also goes on Premium trim. The other three trims are powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V6, which supplies 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque. Both engines have automatic stop/start technology to eliminate idling, and they are both hitched to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Although rear-wheel drive is standard on the Stinger, Kia offers all-wheel drive on any trim to boost traction ability. Fuel economy peaks at 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with the I4 engine.
