2020 Kia Stinger review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Kia Stinger?

The 2020 Kia Stinger is a five-seat mid-size hatchback with coupelike styling. It’s powered by a standard 255-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or an optional 365-hp, twin-turbo 3.3-liter V-6. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are offered. Competitors include the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Audi S4

What’s New on the 2020 Kia Stinger?

A new GT-Line trim level replaces last year’s base trim and adds a unique grille treatment, black chrome exterior accents, special bumpers, a flat-bottom steering wheel, a black headliner and metal pedals. A wireless device charger is also standard. 

What Features in the 2020 Kia Stinger Are Most Important?

Standard features include 18-inch alloy wheels; LED daytime running lights and taillights; leather upholstery; heated front seats; a 60/40-split, folding backseat; dual-zone automatic air conditioning; a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system; Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity; and push-button start. Upscale available features include a power liftgate, Nappa leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, navigation, a Harman Kardon premium stereo, a head-up display and a 360-degree camera system. 

Available active safety features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, a driver drowsiness monitor, and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability. 

Should I Buy the 2020 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 easy-to-use technology are highlights, though its swoopy design hurts visibility.

Love The Car

I researched this car for two years since it came to be and have always loved the styling. Read every review possible and once i sat in one to test drive it was just as advertised. I love the car and this is a GT type car that can accelerate like lightning and looks very sexy. Not the greatest in the canyon but that is not its strength. On long winding beautiful roads the car is awesome and inside is as gorgeous as any more expensive car out there. The true answer is ask me in five years if i am still happy but i can tell you my Panthera Metallic GT1 is the right car for my taste and driving

5.0

very happy with my decision

Definitely a car that I needed for my personal and business needs. I am an athletic trainer that travels throughout Central and NW Wisconsin for my outreach visits. Needed the extra trunk space, heated and ventilated seats are a nice touch. L.E.D. lighting is a very nice touch for night driving and avoiding deer collisions. Motor response is very dependable. Definitely gives the pick up and go that you want.
