Kia Corp Reveals Special Edition Kia Stinger and Kia K5

June 4th, 2021 by


Kia Corp is proud of its latest sports cars added to the lineup. It starts with the Kia Stinger , released in 2018, and paving a new way for Kia Corp style and performance. Receiving a mid-cycle refresh, the Kia Stinger got upgrades for the 2022 model year of the Stinger sports car . In 2021, the Stinger was met with another contender for the belt, the Kia K5 , originally known as the Kia Optima. Also refreshed and renewed for its new generation, the Kia K5 was all the automaker could talk about, and was quickly collecting automotive awards like the Kia Stinger. Celebrating both, Kia Corp is releasing a 2022 Kia Stinger Scorpion Special Edition and 2022 K5 GT-Line AWD Premium Package.

“Stinger was a wake-up call to a segment long populated by European sport sedans when it debuted in 2017 (as a 2018 model). It redefined what enthusiast drivers thought about Kia and proved we could compete against the best vehicles in a hotly contested space…Since then, Stinger has built a loyal following of those looking for something unique and the Scorpion is set to continue that approach.” – Sean Yoon, president & CEO, Kia North America and Kia America
