The 2022 Kia Stinger gets updated powertrains and fresh styling. U.S. sales will likely begin in early 2021.
Exterior changes include new LED headlights and taillights, new 18- and 19-inch wheel designs, larger exhaust tips and a rear diffuser for the GT version, a blacked-out appearance package.
Inside you’ll find upgrades like new finishes and gloss-black trim, contrasting stitching, refreshed ambient lighting, a wider 10.25-inch infotainment display.
Kia has not informed of the updates under the hood, but we know there will be some. Expect more powerful engines, turbocharged ones, possibly borrowed from the Genesis G80.
We mean a 2.5-liter four-cylinder 300-hp engine and a 3.5-liter 375-hp V6 instead of the current 2.0- and 3.3-liter four- and six-cylinders. More detail will follow later.
The current 2020 Kia Stinger is priced between $33,090-52,500. It ranks near the top of the luxury small car segment.
The model boasts a spacious cabin for the class, plenty of standard features, a balanced ride and handling. It has an easy-to-use infotainment system, a large cargo area, great safety scores, a lengthy 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
A rather poor fuel economy is almost the Stinger’s only drawback.
