Kia might have first introduced the Stinger in 2019, but the 2022 Kia Stinger is the first to make it to Calgary and the rest of Canada. With an enhanced design for the new model year, the Stinger offers the perfect blend of modern technology, high performance, and ultimate comfort.
The Stinger offers a thrilling driving experience for driving enthusiasts, including superb handling in all weather conditions. However, it also offers maximum comfort for those who want a sporty car to take them through the tedium of everyday life.
Nothing turns heads faster than a sports car, and the 2022 Kia Stinger will do just that in Calgary with its confident and aggressive presence. For 2022, Kia offers the Stinger in seven different bold colour choices and added new features, such as black 19-inch alloy wheels, rear combination lamps, and more aggressive diffuser and quad exhaust tips.
For the interior, Kia went for luxury, matching the design of the penultimate Telluride SUV. Well-designed and attractive, the cabin environment features a simple dashboard with circular air vents, upgraded cluster housing, and crystal clear 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Drivers that want even more can opt for an available suede package for the GT Elite trim level that adds suede seat inserts, headliner material, door panels, and more.
With a wide hatchback opening and long wheelbase, the Stinger offers the most cargo space in its class, including 660 litres of space behind the second row and 1,158 litres of capacity with the second row folded down.
Drivers in Calgary will never find power lacking in the 2022 Kia Stinger thanks to its new engine upgrade--a 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 engine that delivers 368 horsepower. It pairs with standard all-wheel drive, Brembo brakes, and electronic suspension control for ultimate handling on all roads and in all driving conditions. The Stinger gets 13.7 L/100km city and 9.6 L/100km highway fuel economy.
Kia provides the best of everything on the 2022 Stinger, and the infotainment system is no different. This intuitive system is controlled through a 10.25-inch touchscreen and several physical buttons. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity come standard on all Canadian models, as does a 15-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system, Bluetooth, and satellite radio.
Safety has long been a top priority at Kia, and the 2022 Stinger is no different. Kia's cutting-edge Advanced Driver Assistance Systems come standard on all models with features such as advanced forward collision-avoidance assist with junction turning, safe exit warning, navigation-based advanced smart cruise control, blind spot collision avoidance system, and lane following assist.
The 2022 Kia Stinger is available in three model configurations in Calgary and across Canada: GT Limited, GT Elite, and GT Elite - Suede Package. The GT Limited starts at $50,495 while the GT Elite starts at $52,995, adding such features a blind spot view monitor and head-up display.
The 2022 Kia Stinger is truly a sight to behold, pairing power with sensibility, space with luxury. Its powerful engine, standard all-wheel drive, premium interior design, and spacious cabin environment make it an incredible vehicle option for drivers in Calgary.
