Kia Stinger

What's on this page

Kia Stinger Australia

The Kia Stinger is the performance flagship of the Kia range, and raised plenty of eyebrows with its rear-drive five-door hatch layout when it arrived in October 2017.

This was also just in time to fill the void left by the end of Australian-built Falcon and Commodore.

From launch it arrived in six different variants split between four-cylinder turbo and twin-turbo V6 drivetrains. The range currently spans from the $49,550 Stinger 200S up to the $63,260 Stinger GT (black Leather).

Rather than being developed to compete with the legendary Aussies, the Stinger was benchmarked against the Audi A5 Sportback and BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe.

Kia Stinger Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Stinger here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Kia Stinger 2018: Noise when turning the wheels

    Without actually hearing the noise in question it’s not possible to speculate on what it might be. It’s under warranty, so take it back to your dealer and have them check the brakes for you.

  • Kia Stinger: Did it live up to expectation?

    Kia’s target for the Stinger was originally 200 per month, and while it has sold 150-160 per month the company says it is not disappointed. They are buoyed by the fact that more than 80 per cent of the sales are the top-spec 3.3-litre GT. They are also encouraged that three state police forces have signed up for Stinger – Queensland, WA and the Northern Territory – and South Australia is still looking at it, while Victoria and NSW are showing renewed interest in the car.

  • Kia Stinger GT 2017: Worn out breaks

    Performance brakes generally wear out faster than regular brakes; one of the reasons is that the disc rotors are often softer. That means more frequent machining of rotors, and ultimately more frequent replacement.

  • Is the Kia Stinger a good car?

    Well, it is a much better form of daily transport than a 1904 Darracq. If you're in the market for a brand-new, fast, rear-drive, four-door family car under $75,000 then it's hard to go past the Stinger GT.

    They're not the most amazing machine on four-wheels, but they're a great first tilt at a proper performance car from Kia and are worth a look if your WRX or MX5 is getting a bit small for family duties.
