Set to go on sale in its home market of South Korea this May, pulsenews.co.kr says the Kia Stinger GT will have a starting price over 30 million won ($26,930). There's also a more upscale and performance orientated trim available for 40 million won, or around $36,000.
Not a bad price for performance sedan that's powered by a 2.0-liter turbo four and 3.3-liter turbo V-6 engine respectively. Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, borrowed from the K900, and customers have a choice to go with either rear or four-wheel drive.
Domestically, the Stinger GT will be sporting a specially-designed badge instead of the traditional Kia one. Instead, the KIA logo will only be on the models destined for the global market.
While these prices are pretty fair for what buyers will be getting, those of you abroad may not see similar numbers after taking into account import tariffs. Even with a price increase due to taxes, the Stinger GT can still easily undercut its competition's prices as the BMW M2 starts at $52,500.
Some may argue that the Bimmer costs more because of the M2's driving experience, but the Stinger GT is no slouch and with such and affordable price, it doesn't really need to outperform the M2.
