The 2018 Kia Stinger clearly has high-performance DNA coursing through its metaphorical veins. Just like many of the European-built models — the Stinger was made to compete against, the new Kia sportback four-door vehicle was perfected on the Nürburgring proving grounds in Germany.

“Unlike any Kia that has come before it, the Stinger really is a dream car for us, and after years of commitment and hard work from a passionate group of designers, engineers and executives around the world, that dream is now a reality,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning, Kia Motors America. “From its GT Concept-car origins to its tuning and refining on the legendary Nürburgring circuit, no detail was too small to be obsessed over, and the result is simply stunning.”
