2021 Kia Stinger for Sale in West Springfield, MA
The 2021 Kia Stinger’s main appeal lies in its performance and style. This high-output sedan was born of the Kia GT Concept from 2011 and the Kia GT4 Stinger Concept from 2014. Shortly after its 2018 debut, the Stinger was honored with the Best Production Car of the Year award at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show and was recognized as MotorWeek’s “Best of the Year.” Plus, with its aerodynamic and modified fastback design, sharp LED lighting, dark chrome accents, turbocharged performance, expert craftsmanship, nimble handling, interior amenities, and aggressive stance, it earns a top spot on daring drivers’ short lists.
Trim and Powertrains
The ‘21 Stinger is issued in GT-Line, GT, GT1, and GT2 trim levels. The entry-level GT-Line is invigorated by a 255 hp (260 lb.-ft. of torque) turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The GT, GT1, and GT2 move up to a robust 365 hp (376 lb.-ft. of torque) 3.3-liter V6 twin-turbo. All four trims get an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard rear-wheel drivetrain. All-wheel drive is available for all trims, but the AWD system in the GT, GT1, and GT2 uses dynamic torque vectoring for maximum handling and stability in low-grip conditions, automatically applying power and braking force to the appropriate wheels.
Standard and Optional Features
The GT-Line yields 18-inch wheels, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, keyless entry and push-button ignition, a Smart Welcome feature that illuminates the door pocket light for convenient entry when it’s dark, a rearview camera, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, alloy sport pedals, selectable drive modes, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, leather upholstery, and a heated steering wheel (AWD only). The optional Sun & Sound Package will add a sunroof and a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat.
The GT gets the power passenger’s seat, but not the sunroof. Its other notable standard features are 19-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 summer tires, high-performance Brembo brakes, LED headlights, a limited-slip differential (RWD only), torque-vectoring (AWD only), and ambient interior lighting. The GT1 gets the sunroof, in addition to auto-dimming side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, a power steering wheel with memory, a digital gauge cluster, memory functions for the driver’s seat, and ventilated front seats. The GT2 supplies higher-quality Nappa leather upholstery, adjustable thigh extension and side bolsters for the driver’s seat, lumbar adjustments for the passenger’s seat, heated rear seats, and a head-up display.

The GT gets front and rear parking sensors, while the GT1 and GT2 receive automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, a driver attention monitor, and automatic high beams.
The GT-Line has an infotainment system with voice recognition and a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a six-speaker audio system, and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming capability; it also gets and front and rear USB charge ports and 12-volt power outlets. The Sun & Sound Package is available to upgrade the infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, navigation, and a premium 15-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. The GT provides a nine-speaker audio system, and the GT1 and GT2 both come with the features from the Sun & Sound Package.
