Kia Stinger 200S 2018 review: snapshot

The Kia Stinger 2018 model range is opened by the 200S, which is listed at $45,990 before on-road costs.

The Kia Stinger 2018 model range is opened by the 200S, which is listed at $45,990 before on-road costs. It comes with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine producing 182kW of power and 353Nm of torque, is rear-wheel drive, and comes as standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Every Stinger has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as built-in sat nav with 10 years of updates.

The entry-grade 200S model has artificial leather trim on the seats, dual-zone climate control, electric driver’s seat adjustment (eight-way), manual front passenger seat adjustment, a digital driver info display with digital speedometer, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, auto headlights (halogen projector beams with LED daytime running lights), heated exterior mirrors with folding, and a 7.0-inch multimedia screen with a six speaker sound system. 

There is no CD player, but you get media USB (plus an additional USB charging socket and two 12-volt outlets) and there’s Bluetooth phone and audio streaming connectivity, as well as DAB+ digital radio. Keyless entry (with a button on the door handle, rather than the more advanced hand-sensing system on some rival cars) and push-button start are standard on all models, too.

Standard safety kit has been updated on the 200S since it launched, with every Stinger now fitted with auto emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control with stop and go functionality, driver attention alert, a reversing camera, rear parking sensors, and seven airbags (dual front, front side, full length curtain and driver’s knee).
