Read all about it in this 2019 Kia Stinger review from Sussman Kia. We’ll show you why you should take this sporty sedan for a test drive around Jenkintown, Rydal, and Glenside today.
All About Performance
When you hear the low growl coming from the 2019 Kia Stinger, you know it has a lot of power under the hood. Base models come with a 2.0L Turbocharged I4, which offers 255 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
This engine will take you from zero to sixty MPH in 5.9 seconds. Plus, it features a twin-scroll turbocharger, so there’s no hesitation between putting your foot on the gas and enjoying that exhilarating power.
If that’s not enough power, you can upgrade to a 3.3L Twin-Turbo V6 for 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque. This option goes from zero to sixty MPH in a mere 4.7 seconds. That’s faster than the BMW 440i Gran Coupe, Audi A7 Sportback, and Porsche Panamera RWD V6.
Both GDI engines feature Idle Stop and Go, which reduces emissions by turning the engine off when you’re at a red light. As soon as you take your foot off the brake, the engine is ready to go again. Plus, each Stinger shifts seamlessly thanks to a responsive 8-speed automatic transmission.
With all that power, you want a lot of control. MacPherson front struts and a 5-link rear suspension help you glide over hills and around bends in the road. For even better handling, opt for the Electronically Controlled Suspension. This offers on-the-fly tuning, which reacts to minor changes in road conditions to deliver major enjoyment.
The Kia Stinger comes standard with a sporty rear-wheel drivetrain. All-wheel drive models are also available for improved acceleration, cornering, and traction.
There’s plenty of stopping power, too—especially when you go for the Brembo® performance brakes. In the front, these brakes are equipped with four pistons to prevent your rotors from warping as you quickly decelerate.
More Fun Inside
Just in case you want to listen to something other than that sweet engine purr, the Stinger offers plenty of multimedia options. Even with the standard options, you can:
- Plug into the auxiliary or USB inputs
- Stream via Bluetooth®
- Connect with Android Auto™ or Apple CarPlay™
- Listen to SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
- And more
Six speakers come standard, but you can up the ante with Harman/Kardon® QuantumLogic™ Premium Audio. This system delivers 720 watts of sound through 15 speakers. Meanwhile, Clari-Fi™ music restoration technology makes sure you’re getting concert-quality sound.
