Finally we have got the first spy pictures that shows changes in the front end of the Kia Stinger Facelift after several set of pictures. Thanks to the our colleagues at AutoPost we can see a new LED DRL signature that can mean a change into the headlight design. Unlike other Hyundai-Kia models, which undergoes major changes when its time to a launch partial change model or facelift, the front part of the new Stinger is almost similar to the existing one.
What we know so far?
The overall headlamp shape, daytime running lights, and LED turn indicators are very similar to the previous one, and the positions of the vertical aero fender garnishes on both ends of the bumper are the same. On the other hand, the interior detail of the headlight was an existing one-hole projection LED, but it seems to have changed to a small-sized three-hole projection LED.
The unchanged side design changed the mood by applying a new wheel. The original Y-shaped five-spoke wheel design has been changed to a new sporty wheel. The star-shaped wheel cap and 10 spokes were placed in the center of the wheel in a balanced manner, making it look like a 5-spoke wheel, while giving it a bigger look.
Subsequently, the estimated 18-inch wheel was changed from the existing compact symmetric wheel design to a pinwheel shape. Unlike the existing 18-inch wheels, which are stable and neat, the new wheels are expected to give a dynamic feeling as if they are spinning even when stopped.
The rear has a completely new type of tail lamp, and it reverses the overall atmosphere. The long tail lamp design is similar, but unlike the current model, it is all lit up to the middle. It is similar to the design of the tail lamp of the Kia Motors sedan in recent years, but it is as tidy as it has been long. At the bottom of the tail lamp, a point-emitting LED turn indicator and a reversing light are applied, and the circular quad muffler tip is the same as before.
On the other hand, the Kia Stinger partial change model will be equipped with a 2.5-liter gasoline turbo engine with a maximum output of 304 hp and a maximum torque of 43 kg.m, and a 3.5-liter gasoline turbo engine with a maximum output of 380 hp and a maximum torque of 54 kg.m. to be.
