2019 Kia Stinger Introduction

The 2019 Kia Stinger is an ambitious five-door hatchback, one that takes on luxury European cars with its teardrop shape and its lavish cockpit. With its most powerful engine, a twin-turbo V-6, it’s a screaming bargain compared to those rivals.

The Stinger is bigger than it appears, which is a testament to its styling. It’s 190.2 inches overall, with a 114.4-inch wheelbase.

There are two engines, a 255-horsepower turbo-4, and a twin-turbo V-6 with 365 horsepower. Using an 8-speed automatic transmission, it can accelerate from 0-60 mph in about 4.7 seconds, with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.

A rear-wheel-drive base Stinger with its 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine is EPA-rated at 22 mpg city, 29 highway, 25 combined. With all-wheel drive it gets 1 less mpg.

The Stinger GT with its 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 gets 19/25/21 mpg with rear-wheel drive, and virtually the same with all-wheel drive.

The 2019 Stinger hasn’t been crash-tested yet. Automatic emergency braking isn’t available on the base Stinger or the base Stinger GT. It comes standard on other trim levels, along with adaptive cruise control, automatic headlights, and active lane control.
