In this review, we are going to take a closer look at the Kia Stinger. We will examine the details about the Kia Stinger under three main categories such as The Features of the Kia Stinger, The Fuel Consumption of the Kia Stinger and Basic Characteristics of Kia Stinger. These categories prepared for explaining the vehicle from any perspective. Before beginning the review, I would like to share some general information about the history of the Kia Stinger. The Stinger is a midsize executive car produced by South Korea-based Kia Motors. The car, which first appeared in 2017, was introduced to the public at the 2017 North American International Auto Show. Before the car went into the serial production process, it was subjected to a very extensive testing process. The car has been tested on the Nürburgring for 10,000 kilometres. This means that the Stinger is capable of giving maximum performance in all conditions. Combined in South Korea, Kazakhstan, and Russia, the car is one of Kia's most remarkable projects in recent years.
The Features of the Kia Stinger
In this part of the review, we are going to focus on the features of the Kia Stinger. We can start with the exterior design of the Kia Stinger. Looking at the exterior design of the Stinger, we can easily see that the car is one of the sportiest cars Kia's has released. The car was designed by Peter Schreyer and Gregory Guillaume and has a very impressive design. It is announced by the company officials that it is aimed to be a complete sports car with maximum performance and the most effective aerodynamic elements in the design phase. When we look at the general design of the car, we see that these explanations are quite correct. The air intakes on the body of the car provide aerodynamic benefits while reducing friction, providing both better performance and better road handling. When we look at the front, sharp details and aesthetic headlight design make the Stinger's silhouette look very stylish. Now, we are moving on to the interior design of the Kia Stinger. The Kia Stinger has one of the most organized interior designs you can ever see. The triple air outlet in the middle is one of the details that we are used to from sports cars. This detail is in harmony with the general structure of the car. At the same time, the multimedia screen is of average size and has been created with a highly adequate, distraction-free design. The steering wheel, on the other hand, has a sportive design befitting the characteristic features of the Stinger.
The Fuel Consumption of the Kia Stinger
Now, we are going to focus on the fuel consumption of the Kia Stinger. We usually work on popular engine types and making analyses on them by checking details for an efficient fuel consumption analysis. While choosing the right car, you need specific and simple information. That is why we are using this distinction method to make things easier for you. We use two main categories to make a useful distinction such as The Most Economical One and The Most Powerful One. Kia Stinger has got three standard engine varieties such as 2.0, 2.2 and 3.3. We are going to analyse two of them as the most economical and the most powerful one. We can start with the most economical one which is 2.2 CRDi. It has got a four cylindered engine structure with a 2199 cm3 size. It is using a Diesel feed fuel system so we can say that it is a Diesel type engine. It can produce 200 HP and 3800 RPM Torque. According to the official factory data, 2.2 CRDi has got a 7,0lt/100km (which refers to 40 MPG in the UK) fuel consumption performance in Urban usage. However, this mpg rate decreasing to 5,0lt/100km (which refers to 56 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage such as Highways or Long-Distance Trip. When we combine these mpg data, we get a 5,0lt/100km (which refers to 56 MPG in the UK) average fuel consumption performance. Now we will focus on the most powerful engine, which is 3.3 T-GDI V6. It has got a six cylindered engine structure with a 3342 cm3 size. It is a Petrol Type Engine which produces 370 Horsepower and 6000 RPM Torque. 3.3 has got a 14,0lt/100km (which refers to 20 MPG in the UK) fuel consumption in Urban usage. On the other hand, this fuel consumption rate decreasing to 8,0lt/100km (which refers to 35 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage. When we gather these two fuel consumption data, we get a 10,0lt/100km (which refers to 28 MPG in the UK) average fuel economy data.
