Kia Stinger 3.3L GT Carbon Radio Review

Kia Stinger GT Carbon front

Kia Stinger GT is fast, looks cool, has heaps of street cred and it comes from Kia?

Stinger is more than a sports car. The GT means Gran Turismo. A vehicle you can drive long distances in comfort and style.

We’ve got the Stinger GT Carbon Edition which adds carbon fibre door mirrors, grille surround, fender vents, rear skid plate and hood vent. Inside it adds an Alcantara steering wheel and a badge.

Yes the Stinger is pretty fast 0-100kmh in 4.9 seconds and top speed of 270kmh. But that actually sells the car short. To get the same performance you would have to buy something like the Audi S5 Coupe that cost in excess of $130,000. Or you could buy the Hyundai version the Genesis G70 for about $90,000

Its appeal is that it is also so easy to drive every day and be comfortable. Air-conditioned seats, with multiple electronic adjustments, 360 degree cameras, and walk up boot opening are just a few of the comfort features.

Add to this Kias 7 year owner benefit package and a five star ANCAP safety rating.

Kia Stinger GT Carbon edition is priced from just under $65,000 plus the usual costs.
