2021 Kia Stinger to get more power?

2021 Kia Stinger to get more power?

The Kia Stinger was probably the last monumental release from a Korean automaker. It made such a splash and created such a buzz that Kia hardly had to do any marketing itself. Now we are used to the car, what comes next? Apparently more power, as Kia have hinted at an output upgrade in the 2021 model.

The Kia Stinger was released back in 2018 and is due some love to keep it relevant in these ever-changing times. One way for Kia to make a superb car even better is to push the output a little.

The Stinger already looks fantastic, drives exceptionally and handles very well indeed so a power boost might be just the ticket. Kia has yet to confirm but sources reportedly in the know have said that the current V6 engine is being tweaked to deliver a little more than the current 365 hp.

Exactly how much we will have to wait and see!

2020 Kia Stinger

The 2020 Kia Stinger continues where the original car started, as a rival to the German performance sedans. It has performed better than anyone could have imagined.

The design is sleek and a clear statement of intent. The long low front with angled lights and narrow tiger nose grille and hood vents show you immediately what this car is all about. A raked windshield and rising beltline along with sloped roof provides the cabin space while giving the impression of a very planted rear.

It’s a triumphal design that has proved very popular indeed.

Inside, there is more interior space than you might think for a sports sedan. It is light thanks to lots of glass and narrow pillars, spacious and has good headroom, even in back.

The driving position is very comfortable with controls and instruments all positioned perfectly. There is enough technology to keep you in full control and fully informed while not distracting you from the road.

Engine and mechanicals

The 2020 Kia Stinger has two engine options. A 2.0-litre turbocharged four cylinder that produces 255 hp or a twin-turbocharged 3.3 litre- V6 that produces 365 hp. Both use an eight speed automatic to the rear or all wheels.

Power delivery is smooth and starts low in the range. The transmission is slick and always knows what gear comes next with very little delay. Switchable driving modes add icing to the cake and completely transforms the experience.

The 2020 Kia Stinger is a Top Safety Pick+, making it a very safe car to drive. We assume the 2021 model will be the same or even better!
