Kia's Stinger is still a relatively new model and now the automaker is adding a special edition Atlantica model for the 2019 model year. Intended as a variant honoring the various global teams that had a hand in the Stinger's development, only 500 examples will be produced.
"The Atlantica edition introduces more European flare while distinguishing itself with exclusive badging and features not previously offered by Kia in the U.S. market", said Kia's VP of product planning, Orth Hedrick.
Using the Stinger GT as a base and borrowing elements from both the Euro-spec and Korean-spec Stinger. The limited edition Atlantica will have the same 19-inch alloy wheels from its European sibling and feature a rear deck lid Stinger badge borrowed from the Korean model. Something else that sets the Atlantica apart from the rest is a unique Deep Chroma Blue metallic painted body and special badges on the vehicle's sides near its front fender.
Moving inwards, the special edition model comes with exclusive Espresso Brown Nappa leather upholstery, black suede-style headliner, Surround View Monitor, wireless phone charger and heated rear passenger seat.
CarScoops claims pricing is still up in the air for the Stinger GT Atlantica, but Kia should release that information as we approach the model's summer on-sale date.
