Alex on Autos review

Pretty good review, a little inaccurate information but good overall.

I'm generally a fan of Alex's car reviews simply because of how well laid out the formatting is. What part of the Stinger did he get wrong?

Agree! Another great in-depth review from him.

I didn't find any "inaccurate information" in this video too. As for me, it left no questions unanswered. Looking forward to a test drive at the local dealership!!

The inaccurate info was about the fusion sport, not the Stinger. He said that the sport was more powerful than the Stinger but had a slower 0-60 time. The sport only has 325/375 stock.

This is hands down probably the best indepth review you will find on the Stinger right now, other reviewers read off the spec sheet and add just enough words around the specs to turn them into sentences. Many publications which I shall not mention are guilty of this. Even when compared to what the average sales person can give you, this blows it out the water.

That's true. If you're looking for more detailed car interview, you should wait for Alex's video. One of the most important question for me was how much space will passengers have in the rear seats... Without sitting in the car I already know how it feels in the rear seats, thanks Alex for it.

Glad to hear that rear seats won't be an issue for you, but it would help if you share with us how tall/short you are as that can help out other members here that need a reference point. Even right now we're a bit limited on what various heights of passengers will experience.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention that. I'm 6 feet tall, so that was pretty easy for me to understand how I will feel in there watching Alex I think the maximum "comfort" height for the rear seats should be around 6'2, if you're taller than that it won't be too comfy for you.

For any car in this segment that should be the case and has been it unless they have a sloping coupe-like roof which in that case its understandable. But Kia had their work cut out for them as the Stinger is essentially the cheaper Porsche Panamera most of us always wanted but never got.

I see BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe and Audi A5 as Stinger's main competitors, but Porsche Panamera isn't the proper rival to compete with. However, I like how Kia has set their targets very high.
