The Stinger continues to evolve and maintain its position as Kia’s halo sport sedan while pushing frontiers in expected style, performance and engineering. The new model is revamped with new exterior design details that offer a more upscale appearance, enhanced performance through its more powerful standard engine, and an unparalleled driving experience with several technologically advanced driver assistance systems. The 2022 Stinger will become available to MEA customers in late 2021 and early 2022.
“The new Stinger continues to elevate Kia to new heights, as a car that can truly compete with the best in the world” said Yaser Shabsogh, Chief Operating Officer for Kia Regional HQs in the Middle East & Africa. “Our latest model proudly displays the talents of our teams to produce a sport sedan that exceeds all expectations. The Stinger is a catalyst to our modern, dynamic lineup of vehicles which also feature the award-winning Sorento and K5 model.”
In True Sport Sedan Fashion
Building off a design hailed for its enthusiastic spirit and perfect sense of proportion, subtle styling enhancements focus on Stinger’s premium and performance-oriented appearance. Along with Kia’s dynamic new logo that adorns the center of the hood and wheel caps, changes to the exterior include Standard LED headlamps with a new DRL signature or optional “Stinger-signature” LED DRLs and headlights, and Standard rear LED taillamps bridged by an eye-catching new taillight design.
Stinger’s interior upgrades sharpen the renowned driver-centric experience: Black gloss and chrome details on the instrument panel add a touch of polish, and GT models with Nappa leather surfaces gain a new “chain link” design inspired by the wristbands found on high-end watches; Modern stitching pattern on inside door panels casts a striking effect, to go with the inspired ambient LED mood cabin lighting with vibrant selection of colors for drivers to choose their desired driving experience.
Tuned by Driving Enthusiasts…for Driving Enthusiasts
The 2022 Stinger GT-Line may soon be seen as the most captivating Stinger as it flexes with more power to accelerate away from the traditional definition of “entry-level”. The 2.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine model, features 300 horsepower and an estimated 0-60 mph time of 5.2 seconds.
The GT twin-turbo V6 continues to offer higher-performance upgrades including a 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 engine expertly combined with a new electronic variable exhaust system to enhance Stinger’s audible “calling card” – especially as it leaves other performance cars far behind.
Technology Upgrades that “Keep it in the Family”
Following in the footsteps of the K5 and Sorento, the Stinger pampers passengers with the latest in infotainment and technology, featuring a Standard 10.25-inch touchscreen display[i] with navigation plus multi-connection Bluetooth[ii] wireless connectivity. The model also includes a Wireless charger[iii] for compatible smartphones along with the 7-inch center cluster which aids drivers through the Blind Spot View Monitor, and the Surround View Monitor, which provides a 360-degree vehicle perspective.
Stinger’s suite of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems[iv] (ADAS) is now the class-leader in this luxury segment. The car’s suite includes the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Junction Turning; Safe Exit Warning[v]; Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist; Rear Cross Traffic Avoidance Assist; Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control; Lane Following Assist; Highway Driving Assist[vi]; and the impressive Harman/Kardon[vii] premium audio system.
