Kia Stinger – Sports Car of the Decade?

Thursday, March 12th, 2020


The first Kia Stinger sports car from Kia Motors all started with a mysterious promotional series called The Curve Ahead. It was a teaser for the unveiling of the Kia Stinger at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. Coming with a new tagline by the automaker, “Cars that drive as well as they look,” the 2018 Kia Stinger embodied that new method with killer style and even better driving prowess. During its first year of release, the Kia Stinger won many awards, there were Kia Stinger Limited Editions, and with a GT option that was fast and affordable, the Kia Stinger was faster than many competitors for double the price. Really, the Kia Stinger GT is faster and more affordable than the Porsche Panamera, Audi A7, Jaguar F-Type, and others. Released a little over two years before 2020, with all the Kia Stinger has going for it, could we call it the sports car of the decade?

Don’t get lost in those crosshairs of muscle cars and sports cars. We’re not talking the Dodge Challenger, or the Ford Mustang, or a Chevrolet Corvette. Although in the sports car segment, many would call them muscle cars for the high-horsepower powertrain options and all the tech and components one can use to modify and improve their vehicle’s performance. Of course, you can modify the Kia Stinger, like the modified 2018 Kia Stinger at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show, but straight from the factory, and most would liken the Kia Stinger to a sports car.
