Beyond simply being a great sports car (that sees 0-60 times of 4.7 seconds in its twin-turbo 3.3-liter GT variants), the Kia Stinger is also one of the best values you’ll find for a luxury car.
Today, we’re going to talk about what makes a car a luxury vehicle and then look at the 2019 Kia Stinger’s luxury features.
What Makes a Luxury Car?
Less easy to define than qualities like speed and capability, luxury is a more visceral feeling that is made up of things like confidence, comfort, convenience and quality. Ultimately, luxury looks a lot like a product that has been thoughtfully-designed and crafted with elements that go beyond simply being functional.
Luxury sports cars, like the Kia Stinger, need to balance extravagance and form-over-function design with performance and discretion. Luckily, the Kia Stinger pulls this off perfectly.
2019 Kia Stinger Comfort Features
Every trim of the 2019 Kia Stinger includes leather seating. The range-topping GT2 features premium Nappa leather. That’s just the beginning, however, the 2019 Kia Stinger has either a standard 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with 4-way lumbar support or a 16-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with 4-way air-cell lumbar support and 2-way width adjusting side bolster/seat extension (standard on GT2).
All models with get heated front seats with a majority of the range also getting cooled front seats and the GT2 features heated rear seats.
It probably goes without saying, but all 2019 Kia Stinger models feature a leather-wrapped steering wheel with available heating.
Automatic climate control is standard across the range, as is rear vents, a cabin air filter and automatic defogger.
2019 Kia Stinger Convenience Features
The 2019 Kia Stinger dazzles as an automotive convenience icon. Onboard, you’ll find a standard 7-inch full touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility. This can be upgraded to an 8-inch display with built-in navigation.
A head-up display (HUD) is standard on the 2019 Kia Stinger GT2.
Although not exactly a convenience feature, the 2019 Kia Stinger features multi-color LED accent lighting across all models.
2019 Kia Stinger Confidence and Quality
Luxury cars aren’t exactly known for their reliability. Luckily, the 2019 Kia Stinger features an industry-best 5-year/60,000-mile limited and 10-year/100,000-mile engine/powertrain warranty ensuring the greatest luxury of all – not having to worry about your daily driver/weekend warrior. This warranty also betrays the fact that Kia has manufactured a product they’re willing to stand behind longer than any other brand on the market (with the exception of their cousins, Hyundai, who have a similar warranty).
