Even though it’s been around for a while, I first saw the Kia Stinger in person at the Chicago Auto Show. I had a chance to check out some cars they had on display, and the Kia Stinger even won an award for the Motorweek Driver’s Choice Car Of The Year!

So what makes the Stinger so great? 

The Kia Stinger is a sporty and fun-to-drive stylish sedan that is really turning heads. It features Kia’s new eight-speed automatic transmission that easily provides smooth, quick shifting and fast acceleration, delivering controlled power in any condition, and at any speed.


The first thing you’ll notice about the 2018 Kia Stinger is the sleek lines. Designed to be aggressively aerodynamic, it has a drag-minimizing A-pillar molding in the front and a slightly bent-out line toward the rear of the vehicle, making it smooth as cream. It’s the picture of style, and the moment you see one, you’re going to want one of your own.

Just look at how HOT this car is!


The Stinger is a spacious car with a wheelbase of 114.4 inches and an overall length of 190.2 inches. Inside, there’s plenty of room to stretch out your legs. With more cabin room than most of the vehicles in its class, there’s lots of space for the kids, their gear, and the family dog.

Various Drive Modes

With Drive Mode Select as standard, the system works together with the engine, transmission, and suspension to provide five intuitive drive modes. So, regardless of whether you’re in busy rush hour traffic, or cruising down twisting country roads, how you drive is completely up to you. The five drive mode options include Smart, Eco, Comfort, Sport, and Custom, and each one has its own unique feel.


Kia makes some of the safest cars in the industry, and the Stinger is no exception. It has a host of advanced safety features that are standard on every trim, including adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist. With your most precious cargo in mind, it’s committed to keeping your family safe in all possible circumstances. 

Once you’re behind the wheel, you’ll know why you, and just about everyone else, will love the 2018 Kia Stinger.
