Quick Spin in the 2018 Kia Stinger.
What is it? Amazing is what it is. Breathtaking is what it does to you. Kia makes normally some fine cars. Now Kia makes some damn fine cars. The Stinger feels like it should be $20,000 dollars more than it is. The performance, the interior, the practicality. All of it doesn’t just feel more expensive…it screams it.
How does it drive? Effing great. It’s sharp when it needs to be. It’s comfortable when you want it to be. It’s quick when you want to have fun. The 3.3 liter twin turbo V6 delivers 365 horsepower and 376 ft/lbs of torque. Trust me it feels a lot quicker than the numbers suggest. The mid range punch shoves you back. This sucker can handle as well with a nice direct steering and a great diff hanging out in the back applying power down neatly.
Should I get one? Yes. Yes you should. I should get one as well. Hell we all should get one. Everyone join me in getting one!
