Kia Introduces a Tweaked Stinger for 2022
Kia had a little surprise in store for us today: the unveiling of an updated Stinger for 2022. Incredibly, the model will be in its fifth year on the market, Kia having first launched the performance sedan in 2018.
What's incredible – some would say dismaying - about the Stinger is that even as it's been near-universally acclaimed, sales haven't lived up to expectations. SUVs, it is clear, are simply too dominant on the market right now.
Still, Kia is sticking to its guns and today announced updates its hatchback sedan for the coming year.
Visually, you won't have too much trouble recognizing the new Stinger, but some updates will be noticeable. Leading the way on the front of the hood is the new Kia brand logo. At the rear, the dual lights are linked by an LED light strip, which gives the vehicle a more-solid presence on the road. Also, the four exhaust tips are now bigger. This will also be accompanied by a reworked sound that will reach out from a bit further inside the engine's guts, shall we say.
New 19-inch alloy wheels complete the transformation. Seven colours are on the menu, including a new shade called Ascot Green.Read more
