With the holiday shopping season in full swing, Kia Motors America (KMA) is celebrating the arrival of the highest-performance vehicle the brand has ever delivered – the all-new 2018 Stinger – by opening showcases in retail centers across the country. “Stinger Salons” are currently open in Bethesda, Maryland; Skokie, Illinois; and White Plains, New York; with additional locations scheduled to debut soon in California, Georgia and Texas.
“Stinger is a dream car and as we usher in a new era for the Kia brand we are doing something different to show people just how far Kia has come with a true gran turismo that has a faster top speed and zero to 60 time than a Porsche Panamera1,” said Saad Chehab, vice president, marketing communications, KMA. “Whether you are a diehard enthusiast or a curious onlooker who has heard the buzz about the Stinger and Kia’s industry-leading quality, our salons are designed to take visitors on a journey and explore what makes the Stinger such a unique and special offering.”
Additional “Stinger Salon” locations are planned for the Irvine Spectrum in Irvine, California; Valley Fair Mall in Santa Clara, California; the Mall of Georgia in Buford, Georgia; and the Domain in Austin, Texas, all of which are set to open within the first quarter of next year. While there are no direct sales opportunities at the Stinger Salons, on-site specialists can refer those interested in purchasing a Stinger to one of Kia’s nearly 800 dealerships nationwide.
