Kia is a Korean car manufacturer most popular for the Kia Sportage, Sorento, and Niro. The latest lineup of Kia Stinger models will be available in different variations, including a four-door sedan, a five-door SUV, and a seven-seat MPV. Three series are going to be introduced in the 2022 model, which will include the top-line Sportage GTi Series, mid-level Sorento SE Series, and a budget version of the Xceed Series.
2022 Kia Stinger is based on the Kia Stinger sedan and mid-size luxury Veloster. The car will include Kia's signature grille at the front with three vertical slats while a new horizontal bar spans across the vehicle's width. The fog light bezels are designed in a trapezoidal shape with an acute treatment at the top and bottom.
The 10-seater MPV has been equipped with an available 2.0-litre engine that produces 280 horsepower and has the capacity of 260 lb-ft of torque. For the first time, a seven-seater MPV will be offered by Kia to American citizens and has been made available in two trim levels, the LX and LX+. The LX and LX+ trim combination offer enough space for about six adults or about nine children. The LX trim will offer a seating capacity of six adults and three children, while the seventh seat can accommodate an adult.
Kia Stinger GT is powered by a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 271 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. It’s attached to a six-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to the rear wheels. In addition, all-wheel-drive is offered on higher trims.
The Back-Up Camera is great for discovering obstacles when backing up, even though it doesn’t have much use in other situations because it’s not meant for blind spots. Rear-view camera technology is available on all Sorento models. It helps the driver see the area behind the vehicle if an unexpected guest is trying to come over. The sensor is mounted on the rear bumper and sends live images of what’s behind to a small screen on the console. The multi-angle rearview mirror allows drivers to change their viewing angle and height by sliding a lever on the side.
The Kia Stinger GT is equipped with a 7.0-inch infotainment system that can adjust the seat and mirror positions and the temperature of the cabin with a touch of a button. The system also has backup cameras, rear parking sensors, vents, and ports. The touchscreen display in the car's center can rotate 90 degrees to parallel the windscreen. This feature makes it easy for passengers sitting in the rear to see what's on-screen. The Stinger GT comes with Android Auto and Apple’s CarPlay, which allows users to connect their mobile phones for navigation, streaming music, hands-free calls, and controlling audio and climate settings.
The top-of-the-line Stinger GT is equipped with a 2.2-litre engine and all-wheel-drive. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, making the 2022 Kia Stinger in Calgary, AB, go from 0 to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds with a top speed of 153 mph. It has been priced at $42,990 and comes with leather upholstery, satellite radio and Bose audio system, navigation system, advanced climate control, and heated seats.
