    Expert Rating

    3.8 (Good)
    19 City / 26 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2019 Kia Stinger OVERVIEW

    Kia is one of the biggest surprises in the automotive world. Not that long ago, they were a essentially considered a step up from a bicycle, with the only real benefit being their very long warranty. Fast forward to today, and they're selling a rear- or all-wheel-drive sport sedan meant to compete with the likes of the Audi A5 and BMW 4-Series, but at a price that's thousands of dollars less. The 2019 Kia Stinger is a car that can take down these Teutonic titans, and it still gets that famous 100,000-mile warranty.

    What's New for 2019

    For 2019, the Stinger now gets 18-inch machined wheels and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert as a standard features. Premium and GT1 models now have a standard full suite of driver assistance features, wireless charging, and ventilated seats. Rear-wheel-drive GT models now get a mechanical limited slip differential, and the GT2 models get a surround-view camera and heated rear seats.

    Choosing your Kia Stinger

    The Stinger is available with two engine options: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V6. The four-cylinder puts out 255 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, while the V6 makes a respectable 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, four-cylinder Stingers are rated by the EPA at 22 miles per gallon city, 29 mpg highway, and 25 combined, while V6 models get 19/25/21 mpg (city/highway/combined). Power is routed to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is a $2,200 option on every trim.

    All Stingers come from the factory equipped with leather seats, keyless entry with push button start, heated front seats, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Stinger also has a surprising amount of cargo space, owing to its rear hatch (yes, the Stinger is actually a hatchback). Best of all, you get a chassis that was developed at the Nurburgring racetrack in Germany, a place which has become known as the ideal testing ground for anything sporty due to it's 14.2-mile length, 160 corners, rapid elevation changes, and long straights.

    The Kia Stinger is available in five trims:


    The base 2.0L Stinger starts at $33,895 (all prices include the $995 destination fee), and it comes very well equipped. As previously mentioned, at this trim level you get real leather, heated seats, phone connectivity, dual-zone climate control, 12-way adjustable power seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. For a comparison, the rival BMW 430i Gran Coupe has a starting price that's $12,000 higher, but in the BMW real leather remains a $1,450 option. Interior trim colors are either black or light grey, and vary based on external paint color. The only option package available is the $3,000 Sun and Sound Package, which adds a sunroof, LED headlights, a bigger eight-inch infotainment screen with navigation and satellite radio, and a 15-speaker Harmon Kardon premium audio system.


    The Premium takes a fairly large leap in price to $40,095. This trim builds upon the base model and includes all of the features from the Sun and Sound Package as standard equipment along with ventilated seats. Additionally, the Premium model gets a standard suite of driver assistance features that includes adaptive cruise control with stop and go, lane change assist, forward collision avoidance with pedestrian detection, and driver attention warning. At this trim, there are no packages available.


    The Kia Stinger GT is the first model equipped with the 3.3-liter twin turbocharged V6. It also starts at $40,095, but it takes a step back feature-wise compared to the Premium. However, the GT isn't spartan by any means, as it still gets LED headlights, 19-inch wheels with extra sticky Michelin Pilot Sport tires, Brembo brakes, a mechanical limited-slip differential for rear-wheel-drive models, and a nine-speaker audio system. The GT also replaces the light grey leather option with a sporty looking red. No packages are available.


    The GT1 starts at $46,095, giving the Stinger some extra features and performance parts. This trim receives the standard equipment of the Premium model, including the sunroof, an eight-inch infotainment screen with navigation, the Harmon Kardon 15-speaker sound system, and the full range of driver assistance features, but also adds an adaptive suspension and performance gauges. The GT1 also gets an additional paint color choice, Ceramic Silver. No packages or unique options are available at this trim either.


    The GT2 sits at the top of the Stinger pyramid, with a price of $50,985. At this price, the Stinger gets everything, including high-quality Nappa leather seats, a head-up display, a 16-way adjustable driver's seat, heated rear seats, a hands-free trunk, adaptive headlights, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Like almost every other trim, there's no additional packages or options to get bogged down in.

    CarsDirect Tip

    The best value of the 2019 Kia Stinger lineup is unquestionably the GT trim. The performance offered is on par with the Audi S5 Sportback and BMW 440i Gran Coupe, but you'll be paying almost $15,000 less with no appreciable hit to content. It's a great car, and an even greater value.
