Is the novelty able to confront the best brands and what are its pros? Let’s rent the car and find it out.

The manufacturer has already mastered many segments of the auto market, for example С and D class, as well as the whole SUV niche.

Now, the Koreans encroached on a lodge premium brands — Gran Turismo class. Stinger is the answer to the German trio represented by Mercedes, Audi and BMW. Is it able to confront the best brands and what are its pros? Let’s rent the car and find it out.

Exterior

KIA Stinger looks original. The Korean fastback catches the eye with the front bumper with a protruding splitter, air intakes, LED lights and “gills” on the front wings, as well as four exhaust pipes.

Interior

The interior is more laconic, but still very interesting. The high and wide central tunnel with aluminum inserts houses the joystick managing the multimedia system, and the automatic gearbox selector. The tunnel merges with the minimalistic central console dominated by the multimedia complex’ screen. It has beautiful graphics with high resolution and provides a lot of useful data.

The driver's seat with the adjusted profile can accommodate a driver of any size. It is equipped with electric adjustments and ventilation. The rear sofa can accommodate three passengers, though tall people may prop the sloping roof.

Despite the fact that Stinger is fastback, the volume of its trunk i mere 406 litres. Thus, it’s not too practical.

Performance

Ford Stinger is equipped with:

  • 2l engine with 197 HP
  • Eight-speed automatic transmission.

This is the basic engine, but its capacities are quite enough for all the occasions. At the same time, it doesn’t fit the aggressive appearance. It gains speed exponentially and medium revs, while at low and high revs it lacks thrust. All this does not allow to accelerate sharply both in traffic and starting from the traffic lights and doesn’t match the sportive appearance of the Korean car.

The chassis compensate for laid-back acceleration with great stability and neutral turnability. Moreover, the steering wheel is very good and informative, which allows even an unexperienced driver to get out a difficult situation.

Summing up

KIA Stinger got engaged into a tough struggle. It stands apart from its direct competitors, and thus catches attention. Among the model’s advantages are excellent manageability, avant-garde looks and a roomy interior. Flows are unimportant, but active drivers aren’t recommended to opt for a basiс engine.
