Kia Australia has increased the pricing of the first-generation Stinger large sedan four months after the launch of its facelift.
All Stinger variants have become $500 dearer, with the range now starting off from $50,050 plus on-road costs for the 200S and reaching $63,760 for the GT (see full pricing table below).
Speaking to CarsGuide, a Kia Australia spokesperson confirmed no changes have made to the standard of the spiritual successor to the Holden Commodore SS and Ford Falcon XR8, with the usual external factors instead making their presence felt.

For reference, the Stinger remains available in four variants: entry-level 200S and 330S, and flagship GT-Line and GT.
The 200S and GT-Line are motivated by a 2.0-litre single-turbo four-cylinder petrol engine, which develops 182kW at 6200rpm and 353Nm from 1400-4000rpm.
Meanwhile, the 330S and GT are powered by a 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engine that produces 274kW at 6000rpm and 510Nm from 1300-4500rpm.
Either way, both engines are mated to an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission that drives the rear wheels.
