Ken Brown Motor Group is pleased to Introduce the all-new 2018 Kia Stinger. Kia’s GT Concept Car brought to life as a true Grand Touring vehicle, complete with rear or all-wheel drive, premium features, and a beautiful design. The Kia Stinger is more than a fastback sports sedan. It’s Kia redefined.
Inspired by the classic GT cars of the 1970s, and born out of a concept car the firm first showed off in 2011, the Stinger is all about long-distance comfort at speed. Its long, vented bonnet, aggressive front grille and low, stretched-out body is a huge departure from Kia’s more sedate saloons and family hatchbacks, and the exterior is littered with nice touches.
Its squashed rear end, which comes complete with a pair of twin chrome exhausts that extend out on either side of the rear diffuser, and it hides a surprisingly capacious boot. In fact, the entire interior is roomier than you might expect from a sporty car like this.
The Kia Rio has plush, modern interiors with features such as heated leather seats on the higher trims. Despite its compact exterior, the Kia Rio is spacious inside with ample leg room, comfortable head space and a generous boot size for all your driving needs. Data is displayed on a modern dashboard system – making the Rio fun to drive.
In addition to the two petrol-engined models, the Kia Stinger will be available with a 2.2-litre diesel powerplant developing 200ps and delivering a healthy 440Nm of torque, while more power-hungry drivers should look to either the 2-litre 255ps four-cylinder or 3.3-litre 370ps, twin-turbo charged V6 petrol-engine variants.
All models will have an eight-speed automatic gearbox and rear-wheel drive (the all-wheel drive models aren't coming to Europe), with MacPherson strut suspension at the front and multi-link suspension at the rear, plus user-adjustable settings. Drivers will be given the choice between five different drive modes – Eco, Sport, Sport+, Comfort and Smart.
The Kia Stinger draws inspiration in it’s exterior design from the classics of the last century, but it’s full of 21st-century features and technology. The car comes with the full complement of safety and driver assistance tech, including forward collision warning with autonomous emergency braking and pedestrian recognition. You get advanced smart cruise control, there’s lane keeping, rear cross traffic alerts, a top-down surround view to make parking super easy, blind-spot detection and automatic high-beam headlight adjustment.
