2020 Kia Stinger GTS at New York

640 × 362
We knew the 2020 Kia Stinger GTS was coming but genuinely have no idea of what to expect. As the fast Kia was unveiled at the New York Auto Show, we now know what we have been waiting for.

 
The 2020 Kia Stinger GTS is a special edition that will have limited numbers, only 800 so far. It is being referred to as an ‘enthusiast’ edition and given the bright orange colour, I have to agree. However, I also have to say I must be an enthusiast because I love the colour even if I would never normally go for something as bright as that.
 
Aside from the colour, the 2020 Kia Stinger GTS has some carbon fibre trim, new wheels and some GTS badging. Inside, there is more GTS trim and badging, an upgraded audio system, sunroof, wireless charger and a unique headliner.
 
Under the skin
Under the hood, the engine has been tweaked, tuned and upgraded. Kia haven’t yet said what those upgrades are. We get the same impressive 3.3-litre turbocharged V6 engine that produces 365 hp along with the eight speed automatic but with a lot more going on.
 
What is most important is the new D-AWD system. It is for the AWD Stinger and includes a limited-slip differential and tweaked control logic for the transmission, upgraded stability control and new driving modes.
 
One of those driving modes is Drift. While not practical for everyday use, those owners lucky enough to live near a track and have a subscription to Michelin are going to live it. Along with that rear diff, there is going to be more tire shredding options than ever before. Comfort and Sport modes are also included.
 
The standard Kia Stinger is impressive enough, especially the V6 but this new GTS version ups the ante even more. While the engine is said to be modestly tweaked, it’s the running gear that offers the most potential. That rear differential, tweaked stability control, Drift Mode and all the fun that comes with it is what makes this car truly special.
 
Kia says the 2020 Kia Stinger GTS will be limited to 800 units spread around the world. Orange is the only colour and prices will start from around $45,000 USD for RWD and $48,000 USD for AWD.
 
When they will arrive in Canada and for how many CAD has yet to be announced but production is due to begin in the fall.
