The Kia Stinger returns for 2020 without too many changes. The biggest one is to the various trim levels which have been streamlined a bit at the bottom end. The base and the Premium trims have now been combined into a new trim simply called the GT-Line. The GT-Line has a price that's very similar to last year's base model, while looking just a little bit sportier with various external accents to highlight the sporting nature of the Stinger.
The Kia Stinger comes with two engine options: A 2.0L 4-cylinder with twin turbochargers and direct injection makes 255 horsepower in the GT-Line while the GT trims are equipped with a 3.3L V6 engine sporting twin turbochargers making 365 horsepower.
An 8-speed automatic transmission is standard across the whole range, while all-wheel drive is a $2,200 option on any trim level. However, Kia still claims that 21 mpg in combined city and highway driving is achievable with the V6 in RWD equipped Stingers.
Standard equipment on the base GT-Line trim includes power-folding and heated mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, projector beam headlights, LED daytime running lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert, a 7-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, a rear-view camera, park distance control, steering-wheel-mounted audio and cruise control buttons, paddle shifters, a smart key with push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seating surfaces with heated front seats, a 12-way power adjustable driver's seat and an 8-way power adjustable passenger seat.
The GT trim adds the bigger 3.3L V6 engine as well as dual-lens full LED headlights, LED turn signals, 19-inch alloy wheels, a 9-speaker stereo, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, aluminum accents throughout the cabin, a limited slip differential and Brembo brakes.
The GT1 trim gets a bigger 8-inch touchscreen with navigation, a Harman/Kardon 720 watt sound system, a power sunroof, auto-dimming outside mirrors, high beam assist, rain-sensing wipers, a digital instrument display, memory seats with ventilation, electronically controlled suspension as well as a lane keep, lane departure, driver attention warning and smart cruise control systems.
The top-of-the-line GT2 trim comes with some pretty serious kit. Immediately noticeable from the outside are unique front and rear bumpers, along with lots of black chrome accents. Inside, the GT2 comes standard with some nice luxury kit, such as a power opening rear hatch, a surround view monitor and dynamic headlights. Also standard on the GT2 is a head up display, quilted Nappa leather seating, heated rear seats and 12-way power adjustable front seats.
