Kia Stinger Spy Shots Reveals New Rear Design

by Jan 6, 2020All News, Kia, Spy Shots2 comments

Today we have a new pair of spy pictures of the Kia Stinger facelift that for the first time allow us to see the design changes, including a new wide-type taillights that we imagined but now we can see how it looks and I think give it a futuristic touch. What do you think? Hit the jump to see the picture of Stinger GT.

What we know so far?

An article from AutoPostKorea is talking about some new changes to the Kia Stinger Facelift will be adding. Kia has launched the 2020 Stinger recently, including new trims like the GT-Line, that for only $100 extra comes more loaded than the exiting Base trim, and this will be its third year since the Stinger came out for production so that means its soon to receive a facelift.

Reports says we should expect the facelift around July next year. On December Kia posted their sales for the month of November and the Stinger sales is slowly decreasing from 1,173 units last year to 1,057 units in 2019. Year to date sales for 2019 we have 12,827 but 2018 sales were as high as 15,517.

Now we know, as far as performance wise, based from the Hyundai Sonata and soon Kia Optima the new Drive Wise has been applied to the 2.0 Turbo gasoline and 2.2 Diesel engines. So we can expect this to be applied in some form at the facelift Stinger.

With the 3.3 Twin-turbo, it’ll come with new features such as headlight adjustment with the turn of the steering wheel and a new driver’s bolster control system with the switch to Sport Mode (something seen at the Genesis G70).

What can we expect for the facelift?

Now with the interior it’s said the Dark Red Pack interior, which was only available for the 3.3 Turbo Gasoline GT model, could be also available for the 2.0 Turbo Gasoline and 2.2 Diesel Platinum models.

Stay tuned for more details or spyshots.

    What I’m really hoping for is that the new Stinger takes a lot of cues from the updated Optima both inside and outside. The optima front end has an Amazing “Charger meets Camaro” front end that would look stellar on the Stinger, along with the rear fascia. The tail lamp design is nice, but I hope they do something unique on the stinger. Inside, the Optima’s dash is way nicer than the stinger. Give the stinger this interior dash layout with a nicer instrument cluster, a more aggressive steering wheel, sportier seats and better aftermarket-grade stereo and the car would be great. As far as power, a 405hp 3.5L twin turbo V6 should be in order with AWD and a 10-speed auto with Brembo brakes and a few other minor upgrades. What would really be nice would be if Kia offered some factory backed upgrades such as intakes, exhausts, intercoolers, suspension upgrades, brake upgrades, wheel upgrades, cosmetic upgrades such as spoilers, vent visors, wheels, different hood designs, ground effects, steering wheel options, etc.
