Intimate yet expansive. Classic yet modern. The Stinger’s aircraft-inspired interior marries simplicity with substance to give you a sleek cockpit rich with comfort-focused amenities and lowered seating for enhanced connection to the road. It’s the evolution of gran turismo, beautifully realized.

Meticulously crafted for the driver who loves the drive. We obsessed over every interior detail, from the available ultra-soft Nappa leather that envelopes the deeply contoured seats to the metallic accents placed thoughtfully throughout the cabin.

With its sleek fastback silhouette and rear-wheel-drive proportions, the Stinger demands attention the moment it’s in view. Each surface and line, from extended hood to the rounded swell over the wheels, evokes elegance and athleticism.

Kia's Frankfurt design team, led by Kia Motor’s Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, and Kia Europe Chief Designer, Gregory Guillame, merged iconic gran turismo elements with modern aesthetics to deliver a vehicle like nothing on the road. See what makes the all-new Stinger stand out from the crowd.

So, we know what you’re thinking at this point: what excuse can I use to leave work early and experience the perfectly portioned Fastback curves; Classic yet modern. The Stinger is crafted for the driver who loves the drive. We realized that for many the wait may be just excruciating so we got with Bob at Safford Kia to take you (us) for a first ride.
