Here’s How Much the Kia Stinger Will Cost
The long awaited Kia Stinger is almost here and I’m excited to share with you what one of these beauties will cost you. But first, a little recap of my month with Kia.
Last month, I was flown to Vegas to witness the Kia Stinger x West Coast Customs unveiling at SEMA. Outside of the convention, I had the unique opportunity to try the Stinger Drifting Experience and autocross course. This was major treat for SEMA guests as they would be one of the first to get behind the wheel of a Stinger before anyone else. Fast forward a few weeks later when I joined other media on the first National Kia Stinger press drive event here in SoCal, where we were introduced to the pricing of the Stinger.
2018 Kia Stinger Pricing
At the time I’m writing this post, Kia is offering the Stinger in five different trim levels: Stinger, Premium, GT, GT1, and GT2–each of which comes with the option of RWD or AWD. Below you will find the 2018 Kia Stinger Pricing breakdown:
|Stinger RWD||2.0L I4 Turbo – 8 A/T (RWD)||$31,900.00|
|Stinger AWD||2.0L I4 Turbo – 8 A/T (AWD)||$34,100.00|
|Stinger Premium RWD||2.0L I4 Turbo – 8 A/T (RWD)||$37,100.00|
|Stinger Premium AWD||2.0L I4 Turbo – 8 A/T (AWD)||$39,300.00|
|Stinger GT RWD||3.3L V6 Turbo – 8 A/T (RWD)||$38,350.00|
|Stinger GT AWD||3.3L V6 Turbo – 8 A/T (AWD)||$40,550.00|
|Stinger GT1 RWD||3.3L V6 Turbo – 8 A/T (RWD)||$43,250.00|
|Stinger GT1 AWD||3.3L V6 Turbo – 8 A/T (AWD)||$45,450.00|
|Stinger GT2 RWD||3.3L V6 Turbo – 8 A/T (RWD)||$49,200.00|
|Stinger GT2 AWD||3.3L V6 Turbo – 8 A/T (AWD)||$51,400.00|
The Stinger’s pricing is as shocking as it is budget-friendly. Even on the higher end Stinger GT2 models, its cheaper than its competitors in the sports sedan space. At its base level engine you will find a 255-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four; a 365-hp twin-turbo 3.3-liter V-6 is optional. Additional features include a standard 7.0-inch touchscreen, available driver aids like automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control, as well as an optional 15-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system.
Of course, that’s not all. For even more information on the new Kia Stinger, visit Kia online. Stay tuned for more Stinger coverage when I head to the Los Angeles Auto Show (11/30/2017) this week!
