Motor Trend Channel: 2018 Stinger GT

One of the best reviews about Kia Stinger that I've seen. Stinger looks so aggressive and powerful

Always did like review from Randy. He did prove that the automatic transmission wasn't mean for track work, but the Stinger is a Grand Tour and the point is moot to me.
Gotta love his stab at Kia and traction control.

Often automatics are good for most of the track work the average owner would be putting these through, plus the more you get to know the transmission the better you can work with it. During a time where manuals are getting phased out its just about the best we can get.

Kia managed to bring a competitively priced coupe-like grand tourer to the market and the engines are powerful enough to make passing and accelerating effortless on freeways. Of course there are more luxurious ones out there like BMW gran coupes and Mercedes models, but those cost an arm and a leg for anything decent. And on top of that, Kia offers pretty great warranty, so why not?

The trunk is larger than expected as well, making the Stinger a practical vehicle for trips and it's pretty deep when you see Randy inside it.

True! Stinger shows only positive things in terms of its practical side. I was pretty impressed by its rear seats, usually this type of cars have way less space in the back, but not Stinger, with my 6'1" feet I can easily sit there.

Surprised your 6 foot frame sits comfortably in the back. Even my 5 foot 6 frame sometimes get squished in sedans and crossovers, so Kia must have done something special to maximize interior leg room.

Well, of course, it's not the same legroom as in Lexus ES or something, but what I'm saying is there is more space there than in CLA for example. (IMO)
