With how much I scour the net for Stinger news, most of these specs are already known to me but the article is a pretty good refresh of what the Stinger has to offer.
Too bad there's no space in the trunk for a spare tire, being stranded in the middle of nowhere is always a fear of mine.

Thanks for AutoGuide for these short, but reeeeaaally informative reviews.

The base Stinger will have a 7.0-inch audio display touchscreen as standard. It will use Kia's UVO infotainment software and also include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality. A nine-speaker audio system comes standard as well. Higher level trims come with a 15-speaker Harman Kardon system. Navigation is standard from the Premium 2.0T and above.
That's some words that I really like to hear. I didn't know that Stinger has 15 (!!!) speaker Harman Kardon system, that's one more feature that doesn't leave me a chance to consider any other competitors.

Was never much of an audiophile so the nine-speaker audio system is good enough for me, but this is great news for people who are prone to modifying their factory sound system. This would reduce one thing off their to do list.

15 speakers is kinda too much I think! But it is definitely good for those who like their music loud. Since I dont have much knowledge on that, do you guys think it is customizable? So if I decide to buy it, I can maybe save some money on the total car price if they reduce the number on speakers

I'm not quite sure what you mean. Are you asking if you can get a certain trim but ask that they leave out the speakers to reduce costs? not sure if they can do that and this is the first time someone asked that.

The factory is not going to do that, and if they did the speaker cost difference would be dwarfed by the labor in handling something out of spec. Getting fewer speakers would actually cost more - and I mean a lot more.

Does anyone know if that AWD option is permanent or you can switch it to operate in two-wheel RWD mode? I know that most modern AWD systems don’t offer drivers the option to change it, but I just want to make sure.

If you go with the AWD option it is always on.

Don't worry, it doesn't make your driving experience any worse. AWD gives you a lot of advantages such as excellent traction and great balancing handling/driving dynamics, also it allows you to go anywhere, anytime in bad weather conditions.

But if you don't have the right tires then it can be bad, you'd be surprised by how many people in FWD or RWD cars with good tires can out perform some people in AWD vehicles. Once you combine the two then it can be a deadly combination.
