Kia has branched into sports-sedan territory with its new four-door hatchback Stinger. It was designed as a thoroughbred rear-wheel-drive sports sedan with an aggressive stance. In our tests, the Stinger proved to be a nimble car that combines performance, style, and practicality. But in terms of luxury and comfort, it’s not quite to the level of an Audi A4 or BMW 3 Series.
The 2.0-liter, 255-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine offers ample power and a sporty engine note. There’s hardly any turbo lag. The eight-speed automatic transmission is smooth and responsive.
* Between 7/1/18 and 9/30/18, the average savings off MSRP presented by TrueCar Certified Dealers participating in the Consumer Reports Build & Buy Car Buying Service, based on users who received in-stock price offers and who TrueCar identified as purchasing a new vehicle of the same make and model as one of the in-stock price offers from a Certified Dealer as of 10/31/18, was $3,016. Your actual savings may vary based on multiple factors including the vehicle you select, region, dealer, and applicable vehicle specific manufacturer incentives which are subject to change. The MSRP is determined by the manufacturer, and may not reflect the price at which vehicles are generally sold in the dealer’s trade area as not all vehicles are sold at MSRP. Each dealer sets its own pricing.
