2018 Kia Stinger in Calgary | Features, Specs and Performance

2018 Kia Stinger Interior and Exterior Design


Modeled after the GT Concept, Kia now presents the 2018 Kia Stinger as a production vehicle. The sleek and sexy five-door 2018 Kia Stinger raises the bar when it comes to sport/luxury vehicles. Flanked by adaptive led headlights above, and chrome air intake scoops on the sides, Kia's tiger-nose honeycomb grille growls at the competition. A long and wide stance and eighteen-inch wheels deliver exceptional stability and plenty of cabin space. The fastback silhouette, a long hood, a deeply-raked windshield, and the low-slung cabin create a beautiful and sporty look. Dual twin exhausts, a unique LED tail-light design, and an aggressive rear fender round out the Stinger's gorgeous exterior.

The Kia offers the 2018 Stinger in five trims with AWD available as an option on each. Starting with the base 2.0L model (which looks more like everyone else's luxury trim), the Stinger also comes in Premium, GT, GT1, and GT2 trims with various options added at every level.


On the inside, the Stinger rivals its European and Japanese competition for luxury and comfort. Inspired by aeronautic design, every interior detail says style and sophistication. A floating touch-screen display and an available 7" Thin Film Transistor (TFT) LCD screen, provide everything from Bluetooth connectivity to G-force and turbo boost readings. An available Shift-By-Wire (SBW) control changes driving modes electronically instead of manually. Other standard features of the 2018 Stinger include:

•   Keyless entry and ignition
•   Power adjustable heated front seats
•   Heated steering wheel
•   An Auto-dimming rearview mirror

Performance and Safety

Powered by either a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine or a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, the eight-speed automatic transmission glides seamlessly from gear to gear. Twin turbochargers and Duel-continuous Variable Valve Timing help the 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 crank out 365 HP and 376 lb.-ft. of torque. The two-litre four-cylinder engine generates up to 255 HP and 260 lb.-ft. of torque thanks to a Twin-scroll turbocharger and Electronic Intake Continuously Variable Valve Timing. Both engines feature direct injection and idle stop and go.

Drivers can expect a respectable 12.7 / 9.6 City/Hwy (L/100km) from either power plant. Safety also comes standard on the 2018 Kia Stinger. All trims come with seven airbags, electronic stability control, four-wheel anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control, hill-assist control, automatic headlights, and an electronic parking brake. Optional safety features include blind-spot detection, rear parking sensors, a Rear Cross Traffic Alert system, a 360° camera monitoring system, a lane keep assist system, and an autonomous emergency braking system.

No other vehicle for the price offers owners the incredible level of performance, sporty-style, and luxury, as does the all-new 2018 Kia Stinger. No other dealer offers better service and a lower price on a Kia Stinger in Calgary than South Trail Kia.
