According to pulsenews.co.kr, the Kia Stinger could start at $26,930 in South Korea. A higher performance model could go for $36,000. Tack on transportation fees and the base model could go for around $30,000 in NA?
Looking at the numbers that KStingFan posted it seems like the crowd that will care a bit more about image will go for the base BMW or Audi and I can't blame them, odds are that's where a good portion of people will go. Even these days I think some people will have a hard time accepting they have to pay nearly $50,000 for a top trim Kia.The 4-Series Gran Coupe starts just shy of $50k
The S5 Coupe from what I can see on their site starts at $54,600
I guess you have a point but it seems these days people are more open than ever to go with a Korean car, they have prove themselves quite a lot over the years which has contributed to their success. After all how else would they justify spending all they have so far for these new vehicles. The Stinger alone was probably the greatest financial risk they took on so far.Most won't care to try and compare the specs of various models before purchasing a vehicle. AS great of a deal the Stinger is, people like my parents will go with what's comfortable and what they're used to, which are the German and Japaneses brands. Maybe if Kia throws in a few more price incentives people will be more willing to give the stinger a try.
