2019 Kia Stinger 0-60 Acceleration
As Kia’s first real “halo car,” the Kia Stinger has become synonymous with the idea that performance and luxury don’t belong to anybody or any badge.
Although the Kia of old was known as an economy company first and foremost, the modern Kia brand is all about surprising drivers with award-winning models like the Kia Stinger, leading the industry in warranty coverage/reliability and having a fleet of vehicles that does something many mass-market models can’t – stand out.
With the Stinger, however, Kia isn’t just making a better Camry than the Camry in the Kia Optima or challenging the Honda Civic’s dominance on the compact car segment, Kia expanded into a market that is dominated by vehicles that cost twice as much. It’s a David and Goliath story that has consistently seen the Kia Stinger come out on top.

2019 Kia Stinger Acceleration Time
Challenging vehicles in the luxury grand touring segment isn’t easy, however. You must have an interior experience that is comfortable and composed – harkening back to the old luxury cruisers that weighed 5000 lbs. and took 6 minutes to hit 60 – as well as a powerful engine and powertrain.
Luckily, the 2019 Kia Stinger achieves this balance with flying colors.
The 2019 Kia Stinger does 0-60 acceleration in only 4.7 seconds. This is superior to competing models like the BMW 440i Gran Coupe which takes 4.8 seconds, the Porsche Panamera RWD V6 which takes 5.4 seconds and the Audi A5 Sportback which takes 5.7 seconds.
The base model 2019 Kia Stinger also has a respectable 0-60 acceleration time of 5.9 seconds, which puts it ahead of both similarly-displaced mass-market and entry-luxury powertrains.
