2018 Kia Stinger - COMING SOON!
Kia Motors America’s all-new 2018 Stinger fastback sedan has been honored with an EyesOn Design award for Production Car Design Excellence at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. At an event typically dominated by introductions from American auto companies, Kia’s stinger stole the spotlight.
The Kia lineup hits a lot of marks, having models available in several of the most popular segments on the market. Full-size luxury sedans, subcompact hatchbacks, hybrid crossovers, et cetera. But there is one segment in which Kia has never had a presence: sports cars. Introducing the all-new 2018 Kia Stinger. Kia's GT Concept Car come to life as a true Grand Touring vehicle, complete with rear- or all-wheel drive, luxury amenities, and head-turning design.
Unveiled at the 2017 North American International Auto Show, in Detroit MI, the Kia Stinger is more than a fastback sports sedan. It's Kia redefined.
The 2018 Kia Stinger made a striking impression at the North American International Auto Show with two top awards. Cars.com named it Best in Show for its combination of luxury and performance in a sports sedan. It was also recognized with the EyesOn Design award for Production Car Design Excellence. The honor is awarded for the best vehicles making their worldwide debut at the North American International Auto Show.
From Concept to Concrete.
To bring the 2018 Kia Stinger to life, Kia Motor's chief design officer Peter Schreyer turned to his deisgn team in Frankfurt. But what makes it authentically gran turismo, a car for a spirited long-distance drive? Years of commitment and passion resulting in bold style, nimble performance, and undeniable luxury.
"From its GT concept-car origins to the years of tuning and refining on the legendary Nurburgring circuit, no detail was too small to be obsessed over." - Orth Hedrick, VP of Product Planning, Kia Motors America
The exterior, with its fastback silhouette and sleek rear-wheel-drive proportions, exudes disarming confidence. Longer and wider than a BMW 4 Gran Coupe, with a longer wheelbase than the Lexus GS, it delivers elegance and athleticism. From the back, four oval exhaust pipes show and tell a commanding presence even during departure.
