An entry-level Stinger GT-Line with the 2.0-litre T-GDi petrol engine will set you back from £32,025. At this price point, a generous level of standard equipment includes 18in alloys, heated front seats and steering wheel, satellite navigation and a comprehensive suite of driver aids and safety systems.
Stepping up to mid-spec GT-Line S adds: an electrically operated sunroof; LED headlights with automatic levelling and a dynamic cornering function; ventilated front seats; a 360deg around-view monitor; wireless smartphone charging and a powered tailgate. For that Kia charges a £3500 premium over the GT-Line.
By comparison, a similarly specced, albeit less powerful, Audi A5 Sportback 2.0 TFSI would cost nearly £43,000. That’s a premium of almost £7000 over the most basic 2.0 TFSI in the German manufacturer’s range.
Meanwhile, the range-topping Stinger GT S, with its V6 engine and adaptive damping system, is priced from £40,535.
It’s also worth remembering that all Stingers across the range are covered by Kia’s seven-year warranty as standard.
