If you’re looking for your new and exciting sports car, you have to consider the 2023 Kia Stinger. This inspiring sedan offers incredible power, advanced technology, and a well-appointed interior — all wrapped up in a stylish design.
The 2023 Kia Stinger is available in two distinct trims: GT-Line and GT2.
No matter which trim of the new Stinger you pick, you’ll get a ton of power. The Stinger GT-Line has a thrilling, turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine under its hood that delivers 300 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters on the steering wheel for added control.
Going even further is the Stinger GT2 and its beastly, twin turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 engine. This powerhouse generates a whopping 368 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque. Beyond pure power, the Stinger GT2 offers more performance-based features like a valved exhaust system and Launch Control. You’ll also get a Limited-Slip Differential that distributes power evenly to the rear wheels for more responsive handling.
Both 2023 Stinger models can be equipped with an available all-wheel drive system for extra control on various road conditions. That would be extra helpful for winter here in Akron! The Stinger GT2 takes the AWD system a step further, though, and adds Dynamic Torque Vectoring Control that monitors your input as well as the road conditions for improved performance.
Whether you’re headed to work or to downtown Cleveland to see the Cavs play, you’ll stay connected and entertained with the tech inside the new Kia Stinger. In the center dash is a 10.25-inch touch-screen display that’s equipped with a navigation system and Kia Connect. The Kia Connect system gives you remote access to your Stinger to do all sorts of things, like lock or unlock the doors, start the engine, and more.
The touch-screen display is where you can use your favorite compatible smartphone apps with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. You can also connect your devices via wireless Bluetooth® tech or through the USB data port in the front console. Cut the cords altogether with the standard wireless phone charger for a quick power-up.
Every new Kia Stinger model also comes with a three-month trial subscription of SiriusXM® satellite radio. That means you get access to 130 channels of music, news, sports, and more! What’s more, 69 of those channels are 100% commercial-free. You can choose to listen to those on the standard nine-speaker audio system or upgrade to the 15-speaker Harman Kardon® premium audio system (standard on GT2).
In addition to the smart technology in the cabin, the Kia Stinger offers a plethora of comfortable and convenient features for you to enjoy. Get where you’re going quicker and easier with standard remote start, which will automatically start the dual-zone climate control settings you last had on in the car. Every 2023 Stinger comes with heated leather seats and a power driver’s seat with power lumbar support.
You can elevate your experience further on the Stinger GT2 with standard amenities like ventilated front seats, heated rear outboard seats, aluminum interior accent trim, aluminum door sill scuff plates, Nappa leather seat trim, and multi-color LED accent lighting.
The 2023 Kia Stinger is equipped with a long list of standard Kia Drive Wise driver-assist technologies. This includes helpful features like:
The Stinger GT2 adds even more safety and security with a Surround View Monitor, Park Distance Warning-Front, and a Blind-Spot View Monitor.
You can’t miss the Kia Stinger when it’s on the road. The design of this sports car showcases its athleticism with sharp lines and its low stance. The exterior can be painted in vibrant colors like HiChroma Red and Micro Blue Pearl or more subtle tones like Panthera Metal and Aurora Black Pearl. Across the vehicle, you’ll notice black chrome detailing, LED lighting, and a dual exhaust (in black or chrome). The Stinger GT-Line has stylish 18-inch alloy wheels while the Stinger GT2 offers 19-inch alloy wheels in Gloss Black or Gloss Black Machine Finish.
