Are you searching for a family sedan that doubles as a performance car? The Kia Stinger near Rio Rancho NM is a midsize sedan (with two powerful engine choices) that delivers superb handling on the road. With a fastback body style, the sporty Kia Stinger also provides more cargo space than the usual sedan design, making it a great option for a family car. You’ll no longer have to settle for a dull and monotonous experience while getting your family to places they need to be when you drive a Stinger!
The sleek Kia Stinger is offered in three trim levels which include the Stinger GT-Line, GT1, and GT2. The two engines that are offered include a powerful 2.5-liter inline-four under the hood of the GT-Line version that puts out 300 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. And an even more powerful 3.3-liter V6 twin turbo that produces 368 hp and torque of 376 lb-ft can be found in the GT1 and GT2. Both powerplants are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, although available steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters are an option for drivers who love the extra engagement of manual shifting.
Rear-wheel-drive is the standard setup, but an all-wheel-drive configuration is also available for those who want extra traction and gripping power (for an added $2000). When you choose the twin-turbo V6 engine, you’ll benefit from Kia’s dynamic torque-vectoring function which brings better cornering ability to the Stinger.
With seating for five, this sports sedan is perfect for families on the go. For the starting price of $36,590 the GT-Line gives owners a 10.25-inch touchscreen, Kia’s UVO Infotainment System including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for ongoing device connectivity, Bluetooth wireless technology, and a nine-speaker audio system. The new Stinger also comes with voice recognition features which allow you to find navigational routes without the need for manual input, to make hands-free calls on your smartphone, and to change the radio station by merely speaking the station name.
Front and rear charging ports keep all devices charged and ready, while front and rear bottle holders and folding center armrest with cup holders keep things in order. Leather trimmed seating with heated front seats and 12-way power driver’s seat will keep you comfortable, while the alloy sport pedals, and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter will remind you of the Stinger’s performance side.
And if safety is at the top of your priority list, the 2023 Kia Stinger features a wealth of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) too long to list here.
Commanding attention wherever you venture, the assertive stance of the Kia Stinger near Rio Rancho NM boasts an aggressive-looking front fascia with the signature tiger-nose grille and LED headlights. Functional vent openings on each side of the lower front bumper as well as air intake vents on the hood give it real performance credibility, and the classic proportions of a long hood, raked windshield, and low-slung body lend a look of motion even when still.
To the rear, the Kia Stinger features chrome quad-exhaust tips and connected LED taillights. A lower rear diffuser on every trim level directs airflow from under the car for the most efficient aerodynamics.
