New 2017 KIA Stinger Revealed Based On GT Concept

By

The premiere of the new series Kia model called the Stinger was held at the Detroit Auto Show.

The car is a rear-wheel drive sedan-like liftback, partially based on the Kia GT concept car shown in 2011.

The car was designed by Albert Biermann, who moved to Hyundai-Kia after the leadership over the division of BMW M.

With the new sedan Kia intends to compete with the premium compact models from Germany and Japan manufacturers. In this case, the car producer claims that the wheelbase (114.3″) and dimensions of the Stinger (length and width – 190.1″ and 73.5″) allow the car to compete with some models of the business class.

The main bulk of the work on the car carried out in the European division of Kia. The appearance of the car developed a studio in Frankfurt and track tests were held at the Nurburgring.

Depending on the market where Stinger will be available, the engine range consist of a 2.0-liter turbo engine capacity of 255 hp (259 ft lb) or a turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 (365 hp and 376 ft lb). The car will be equipped with a rear-wheel drive with limited slip differential and four-wheel drive with a new torque distribution system. Transmission is a 8-speed automatic.

The sedan will be offered with the 18- and 19-inch wheels, the Brembo brakes, projection display, LED headlights and seats with Nappa leather trim. In addition, the Stinger will receive a suspension with five driving preset modes and accident prevention system.
