You want some all-wheel-drive to go together with your 255-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine? Add $2,200, and you’re set! Moving on to the Stinger Premium 2.0T, the superior trim level will set you back $37,000. The most powerful engine, coming in the form of a 365-hp twin-turbo V6, commands a starting price of $39,000 for the Stinger GT trim level.

Two more trim levels are available, coming in the form of the Stinger GT1 3.3T ($43,500) and Stinger GT2 3.3T ($49,500). Given these circumstances, the most expensive configuration of the mid-size liftback sedan stands at $52,595, which is BMW 5 Series money. In fact, it’s the most expensive Kia in the United States of America, surpassing the K900 by a few thousand bucks.

“A true gran turismo, a car for spirited long-distance driving, is not about outright power, hard-edged dynamics and brutal styling, all at the expense of luxury, comfort, and grace,” highlights Gregory Guillaume, the chief designer at Kia Motors of Europe. “The Stinger has nothing to do with being the first to arrive at the destination – this car is all about the journey. It’s about passion.”

For those people who understand that brand snobbery is just plain daft, it’s easy to comprehend why Kia has high hopes from its rear-wheel-drive newcomer, Not only does the Stinger GT 3.3T challenge the BMW 340i with a lower price and more oomph, but it’s also roomier than the German yardstick.

When it comes to value for money, the Stinger is business as usual for Kia.
