The Kia Stinger GT was selected after rigorous testing to join the Road Policing Command of the Australian state of Queensland, according to the Automotive News.
It will replace the habitual Holden Commodores and Ford Falcons patrolling the roads in Australia for decades. Other states prefer a mix of Chrysler and BMW vehicles so far. The Kia Stinger has become the first foreign-produced car for police in the country.
Since its premiere the Stinger has been gaining popularity. The all-new model is the most surprising Kia in years. It combines versatility, handling and power, that makes the car a good vehicle for law enforcement agencies, with its twin-turbo 6-cylinder 400-hp engine, many space and comfortable cabin.
Apart from good performance features this car was chosen for police due to its ease-to-use and maintenance costs.
This month 50 Stingers have joined the police fleet. 150 cars more are on the way to arrive during next months.
