The Kia Stinger has been introduced at the Detroit Motor Show this week and it has grabbed a lot of eyeballs. In its segment, it will consider the leading rivals as the Audi A4, BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-class. The GT concept of 2011 has been the main inspiration behind the making of the Kia Stinger.

This sports saloon model is a rear-wheel drive vehicle which carries twin-turbocharged 3.3-litre V6 engine. The top of the line variant, Stinger GT is capable of generating 365 HP of power and 510 Nm of torque which makes it efficient enough to cut off its rivals.

The standard trim of the Stinger packs in the rear-wheel drive system with eight-speed automatic gearbox, while an all-wheel drive tech is also available as optional. Talking about the numbers, it is expected to have a top speed of 269 kph and the 0-100 kph figure will probably be achieved in 5.1 seconds.

The Kia Stinger is built on a robust chassis to curtail the vibrations while driving at high speeds as well as it weighs light enough to deliver impressive power-to-weight ratio. It boasts a top-notch quality of front and rear suspension with features of adjustability. For stopping that high power mill which Stinger carriers under the hood, the braking duties are handled by Brembo brakes with four-piston callipers at the front and two-piston callipers at the rear.
