Expert Rating

Not Available

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.

2021 Kia Stinger: Model Preview

Willis Kuelthau
Automotive Editor

Model Preview

The 2021 Kia Stinger will return with small but significant updates. The exterior will see a few tweaks, but they will likely be limited to headlights and fascia. More interesting is an upgrade to the optional 3.3-liter V6, and possibly the base engine as well.

To be the BMW-slayer it so wants to be, the Stinger needs to look the part. We’re already fans of the current Stinger — sharp lines and a trendy fastback roof are both attractive and practical. The 2021 updates will likely be minor, but Kia has been on a roll with design lately. We’re optimistic.


Kia Stinger

Last year’s Stinger paired a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Although it hasn’t been confirmed, it’s possible that the new Stinger will pull an engine from the Kia Optima and Genesis G80, a turbo 2.5-cylinder engine with 285 horsepower. That would be a gain of 30 horsepower and a significant upgrade.

Even better news for enthusiasts: the optional 3.3-liter turbo V6 will return with 380 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque, a gain of about 15 in both categories. We enjoyed the V6 in its last incarnation, and the new one ought to be even better. The new Stinger has been spotted with a new dual exhaust system, and this engine is likely responsible.

Rumors have circulated of a possible electric powertrain, but we have no evidence to suggest that an EV will arrive soon.

We've been surprised by Kia’s stinginess with safety tech on this car. Last year’s model made tech like automatic emergency braking optional on the lower two trims. Kia makes those features standard on most of its consumer lineup, and we hope to see them more widely included for 2021. When equipped with that tech and LED headlights, last year’s Stinger was good enough for an IIHS Top Safety Pick award.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2021 Stinger will go on sale in Korea in the third quarter of 2020. It is expected to make its way to the U.S. in the months following.

The Kia Stinger has its sights set on sport sedan royalty: the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes C-Class, and Audi S4. The Stinger sits in a middle ground between compact sport sedans (like the above) and mid-size competitors like the BMW 5-Series. Either way, it should be a good value.
