You can tell Kia is going for a premium market with the new Stinger. It’s had a subtle makeover and could almost be mistaken for something European.
The sleek and sporty coupe shape looks great on the road and stands up to the competition, especially in this colour.
The interiors have also been tweaked with the main improvement being the large 10.25-inch multimedia screen that looks quite snazzy on the dash, and you can now connect two devices at the same time via Bluetooth - one for calls and one for music, for example.
The rest of the interior looks quite premium even though this is the base model. These seats are not real leather, though you’d barely know it.
They’re faux leather, yet they feel and look almost like the real thing. The steering wheel is 'premium' so you miss out on a leather flat bottomed version. For that, you’ll have to go up a model.
Still, this interior is really nicely designed with aluminium accents throughout and glossy black trims on the centre console and the doors. It feels a little luxe and good to drive on the road.
