The Kia Stinger was first introduced in the form of a concept car at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. Fast forward eight years and the latest iteration of the Stinger is set to be the best yet. With a potent powertrain, striking exterior appearance, and a bounty of interior amenities, the 2019 Kia Stinger has firmly made its mark in the auto industry as an affordable, high-quality performance vehicle.
You’ll have two engines to choose from among the five trims of the 2019 Stinger. The 2.0L and Premium models have a twin scroll turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder under the hood paired with an eight speed automatic transmission. This combination pumps out 255 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque while maintaining a modest 29 mpg on the highway.* However, if you’re craving a heart-pumping experience behind the wheel, opt for the three GT trims, each equipped with a twin turbocharged 3.3-liter V6. Mated to the eight-speed automatic, the Stinger GT, GT1, and GT2 can reach 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque.
The sleek curves and fastback silhouette of the Stinger allow it to stand out among traditional sports sedans. Six exterior colors, including the attention-grabbing Hi Chroma Red and ultimately cool Micro Blue, and standard 18-inch machine-finished alloy wheels create its performance appeal. But when you choose the GT trims of the 2019 Kia Stinger, that’s when things really start to stand out thanks to larger wheels, GT accents on the front and rear bumpers, and the attractive yet functional auto-dimming outside mirrors.
Right from the start, the 2019 Kia Stinger has a large collection of premium standard features on its base trim. From intuitive UVO eServices with a 7-inch touch-screen display to the push-button start and leather-wrapped steering wheel, you’ll feel comfortable and capable sitting in the driver’s seat. But when you upgrade to the higher trims of the Stinger, you’ll get even more luxurious features, like ventilated front seats, a Harmon/Kardon® QuantumLogic™ audio system, heated rear seats, and a suite of helpful safety systems.
From top to bottom, the 2019 Kia Stinger is packed with style, performance, and comfort. Visit or call us at Crown Kia of Longview to learn more.
