Should I Buy the 2019 Kia Stinger?
The Stinger aims to emulate the style and performance of the sleek, coupelike four-doors sold by some luxury automakers – but for a fraction of the price. The performance of its V-6 engine and its easy-to-use technology are highlights, but its swoopy design hurts visibility.
This car is beautiful, fun to drive and fast.
I love this car, comparing it to simular sports sedans, Grand Touring this is a great value and stands up to most high-end vehicles in both style and performance. Read full review
Performance and Luxury exceeding German standards
Amazing performance. A blast to drive. Lots of great storage space with lots of room, all in a very sleek and stylish package. Very comfortable and by far the best bang for the buck out there. Read full review
