Trim and Powertrains
The 2020 Kia Stinger is offered in four trim levels: GT-Line, GT, GT1, and GT2. The GT-Line is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (255 hp and 260 pounds-feet of torque) matched with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The GT, GT1, and GT2 each receive a 3.3-liter V6 twin turbo that yields 365 hp and 376 lb.-ft. of torque; these trims get the same eight-speed automatic. Rear-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive an option on every trim. The AWD versions of the GT, GT1, and GT2 are upgraded with dynamic torque vectoring to distribute power to the rear wheels as needed based on ever-changing road conditions.
Comfort and Convenience
The base GT-Line has a nice list of standard features, with power folding heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators, Smart Key with push-button ignition, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather seating, heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, and a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel and shifter (the steering wheel is heated on AWD models). Those who want a sunroof can add it through the optional Sun & Sound Package.
The twin-turbo trims get a rising slate of standard features. The GT adds a power-adjustable passenger’s seat (but it’s not eligible for the sunroof). The GT1 includes the sunroof along with dual-lens full LED headlights, ventilated front seats, and memory functions for the driver’s seat, side mirrors, and steering wheel. At the top of the heap, the GT2 is loaded with upgraded leather seating, more position adjustments for the driver’s seat, and heated rear outboard seats.
Safety and Technology
Safety-enhancing driver-assist features are abundant in the 2020 Kia Stinger. Both the GT-Line and GT have blind-spot collision warning, lane change assist, and rear cross-traffic alert. The higher-level GT1 and GT2 add driver attention warning, forward collision warning, avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and smart cruise control with stop-and-go.
The GT-Line is set up with a nice infotainment system that has a 7-inch touchscreen display, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth wireless technology, voice recognition functions, a front and rear USB port, a 12V power outlet, and a wireless smartphone charger. Integrated navigation, an 8-inch touchscreen display, and a premium 15-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system are available with the Sun & Sound Package. The GT is outfitted with a nine-speaker audio system, while the GT1 receives the contents of the Sun & Sound Package as standard equipment. Amenities added to the GT2 include a surround-view monitor, a head-up display, and an electric parking brake.
