Kia Stinger 2.0L GT-Line and 330S 2022 Review

Kia Stinger GT-Line – Kia Stinger is one of my favourite cars. What’s not to like, it is very stylish, rear wheel drive sedan in a world that is heading in the opposite direction. 2022 Kia Stinger 330S front qtr We recently drove the 2.0L GT-Line version. It has the smaller 2.0L 4 Cylinder turbo petrol engine, which delivers 182kW of power and 353Nm of torque. It drives the rear wheels through an 8 speed AT

Even though the 2.0L is the smaller brother in the range it still has respectable performance. A time of 6 seconds for the 0-100kmh isn’t too bad and it’s amazingly economical as well. We did 8.4l/100k on our week test drive.

Priced from $58,900 plus the usual costs it comes packed with little luxuries and safety features.

The best thing about the Stinger is the balance. It just feels good as soon as you hop in. It’s also directly responsive to steering, throttle and braking inputs. Select sport drive mode and the fun factor escalates.

It’s a little tight for rear passengers, but the boot area is large and practical with the liftback design.

Around this price you get to choose between this model and the 330S with the larger V6 engine but less features. It’s an interesting choice and one that we address next week.
