Back when the 2018 Kia Stinger first came out, we were blown away. So was everyone else with how many awards the Kia Stinger won from the day of its debut and throughout the year. We also wanted to let consumers know that, although the Kia Stinger is on the luxury end of sports cars, it still makes a good case for four-door family sedans, and if looking for something similar but a smaller price tag, the Kia Optima is a good choice. Speaking of four-door family cars, the 2019 Dodge Charger is also making a testament to the class segment, and with both sports cars here at Miami Lakes Automall, we think family cars are here to stay.
For now, anyways. With Dodge going electric in the coming model years, stating that 2020 will see some hybrid options, possibly with the Challenger or Charger nametag, it might be a good time to look at getting a four-door family car while it can still be called a sports car. Yes, although both vehicles have some pretty standard powertrains, a four-cylinder turbo in the Stinger and the 3.6-liter V6 in the Charger, many would still call them sports cars, and there’s a pretty obvious reason why – potential.
Sure, the base Kia Stinger trim comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine under the hood, able to generate 255 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. It may not have the same oomph of the 365-horsepower twin-turbo V6 engine under the hood of the Stinger GT trims, but it still has launch. The vehicle drivers like a sports car with either powertrain, and with all-wheel drive, the Stinger can handle a variety of road conditions.
