Price and specification of Kia Motors Stinger’s facelift model for South Korea (known as Stinger Meister there) was revealed before the launch which is set for tomorrow (read more). The Stinger Meister, which will be officially released on the 27th, is finally available with a choice of two gasoline engines while the diesel is discontinued.
The two gasoline engines are the all-new Smartstream 2.5 turbo and a revised version of 3.3 Twin-Turbo. Starting price of the all-new Stinger has rised a little bit compared to the price of the 2.0 Turbo (35.24 million won – US$ 29,678). The starting price for the 2.5 Turbo is 38.53 million won (US $32,445) while the cheapest 3.3 Turbo starts at 46.3 million won (US $38,993).
Kia made some changes to make the 3.3 more affordable, leaving out some equipment and offered it through a pack for who is interested on it. The detailed price of the Stinger Meister is:
