The Kia Stinger gets a facelift!
This is the impressive revamped Kia Stinger, the car manufacturer's model for 2021.
It's set to go on sale in the UK early next year and will cost around the same as the current version.
That means that the range-topping GT S model will sell for around £41,000 - but it's also an ideal candidate for a car leasing opportunity too.
There have been some exterior design tweaks to the Kia Stinger, along with the addition of optional extras to help boost what is an excellent car's profile.
The revisions include new daytime running lights, a new 'tiger nose' radiator grille and there's the option of a larger bore quad-exhaust system.
The new Stinger comes with either 18-inch or 19-inch alloy wheels, and these can be swapped for gloss black replacements with Kia's 'dark package'.
The cabin remains largely the same with a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, a similar dashboard layout and sport seats.
The steering wheel has new chrome detailing and a gloss black trim has been added to the dashboard.
The infotainment system has a larger 10.25-inch display, and there's a new rear view frameless mirror.
Kia is also offering a customisable ambient lighting system with 64 colours and there is a range of new interior finishes including beige, red and satin black.
And, depending on the spec, the Stinger will also have new contrasting stitching for the door cards and dashboard.
For those who like the performance levels of the Kia Stinger, the firm is apparently ditching the 2.0-litre petrol engine that develops 244bhp, along with the 2.2.0-litre diesel unit producing 197 bhp.
Instead, drivers will get a 3.3-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine - the one that is currently in the GT S model.
However, the performance figures of 365bhp and torque of 510Nm are impressive but remain the same as the current version.
The new Kia Stinger model is currently in its Korean specification and with sales starting later this year, it is expected that prices and spec details will be revealed by then.
Green Cars’ is the term used for zero, low and ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) - with pressure being applied to lower global emission levels, the need for “eco-friendly” vehicles is on the rise. Many countries now have plans in place to abolish the use of combustion engines before the turn of the century and so more and more vehicles we see on the roads will be Electric, hybrid or very low emission petrol and diesels.
Although beneficial to the environment, ‘Green Cars’ are also beneficial from a taxation view. The lower a vehicle’s emissions banding, the lower the taxation placed against it. Many manufacturers have tapped in to this ever-growing market with their own offerings, however, Volvo were the first manufacturer to state that every one of their models will be either electric or hybrid options from 2019.
