2023 Kia Stinger for Sale in West Springfield, MA
The 2023 Kia Stinger is quite a remarkable vehicle. While it certainly emphasizes performance and muscle, it also supplies a healthy amount of luxury and refinement. In short, if James Bond drove a Kia, it would surely be the Stinger. This car turns heads with its modern and aerodynamic shape and holds the attention with a sophisticated interior layout and zesty turbocharged performance. But the ’23 Stinger’s daring demeanor doesn’t involve any compromise: it’s also outfitted with state-of-the-art technologies, including safety features that will keep you feeling confident and in control behind the wheel.
Trims Levels, Powertrains, and Fuel Economy
Kia’s exciting Stinger is a four-door sports sedan made in a pair of trims: GT-Line and GT2. The GT-Line’s turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine puts out 300 hp and 311 lb.-ft. of torque, while the GT2 gets a gutsier 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 making 368 hp and 376 lb.-ft. of torque. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, and although rear-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive (with grip-enhancing dynamic torque vectoring for the GT2) is available.
The ’23 Stinger burns premium gasoline, and with it the EPA’s official estimates say the RWD GT-Line returns an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway, while the RWD GT2 gets 18 city/25 highway. With AWD, the GT-Line returns 21 city/29 highway, and the GT2 will give you 17 city/24 highway.
Amenities by Trim Level
Some of the base GT-Line’s most compelling exterior features are automatic multi-reflector LED headlights, heated and power-folding side mirrors with LED turn-signal indicators, door pocket lights for convenient entry when it’s dark (known as Smart Welcome), dual chrome exhaust pipes, gloss-black 18-inch alloy wheels, and Smart Key with remote ignition. Inside, you’ll find push-button start, a 4.2-inch LCD instrument cluster, a front console USB data port, front and rear USB charging ports, selectable drive modes (Eco, Sport, Comfort, Smart, and Custom), a sport-design steering wheel with paddle shifters, alloy pedals, a wireless phone charger, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an overhead console sunglasses holder, genuine leather upholstery, a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats with seatback pockets, a 60/40-split fold-down rear seatback with a center armrest, and a cargo-area underfloor storage compartment. Among the options that Kia offers for the Stinger are a wide sunroof, an 8-way power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, a heated steering wheel, carbon-fiber interior trim, Brembo brakes, and black exterior accents (the last three of which are bundled in the GT-Line Apex Special Edition option).
The GT2 gets the sunroof and Brembo brakes as standard features, along with some sportier attributes like a limited-slip differential, an electronically controlled suspension, and gloss-black 19-inch alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport summer tires. On the luxury side, the GT2 also receives LED projector headlights, auto-dimming side mirrors, a smart power trunk, door sill scuff plates, a 7-inch LCD instrument cluster with sport gauges, a head-up display, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel with memory, a HomeLink universal garage door opener, LED interior lighting and multi-color ambient lighting, Nappa leather upholstery, a 16-way power-adjustable driver’s seat (includes adjustments for the side bolsters) with a thigh extender, a 12-way power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, ventilated front seats, and heated rear outboard seats. The heated steering wheel is still offered, along with Michelin all-season tires; black exterior accents and suede interior trim are part of the optional GT2 Grand Tourer Special Edition Package.
Driver Assistance Technologies
Both Stinger trims come with the Kia Drive Wise bundle of advanced safety aids. In the GT-Line, that means forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian, cyclist, and junction turning detection, as well as automatic high beams, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, navigation-based adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, driver attention warning, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, rear parking sensors, and safe exit warning. The GT2 gets even more: a blind-spot view monitor, front parking sensors, and a surround-view camera system.
Connectivity and Entertainment
You’ll be well connected and entertained behind the wheel of the ’23 Stinger, regardless of which trim you choose. The GT-Line’s infotainment system consists of a 10.25-inch touchscreen that controls the navigation system, smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), Bluetooth wireless technology, a nine-speaker sound system, and SiriusXM satellite radio. The GT2 upgrades to a Harman Kardon premium audio system with 15 speakers, which is available for the GT-Line.
