The combination of decadent interior refinements and heart-pounding horsepower under the hood, luxury sports cars bring you the best of both worlds. Inside, they’re plush and sophisticated, letting you experience handcrafted comfort and convenience. On the outside, they’re sleek and aggressive, betraying their massive engine and drivetrains that allow them to get to 60 mph from a dead stop in less than five seconds.
The newest and most surprising member of this class, the Kia Stinger turns more than just the sharpest corners with ease. It turns heads. This luxurious and athletic sportback sedan allows you to get the most out of your ride – whether you need thrilling acceleration, a comfortable and technology-laden interior or over 40 cubic feet of storage space. Going up against the 2019 Kia Stinger today is the Audi S5 – another luxury sports car with some impressive practicality built in. Let’s see how they measure up!

10 years ago, if you would have told us that we would be comparing Kia to Audi, we’d have laughed hard. Sure, Kia has always been about value. It’s never, though, been about challenging cars in established luxury classes like the Audi S5.
Unlike you and your available Lane-Keep Assist, Kia hasn’t really stayed in their own lane lately. By engineering and developing a vehicle like the Stinger GT, Kia has tapped some of the greatest performance automotive designers and engineers to create a vehicle that is superior to the German giants at a fraction of the price.
The 2019 Kia Stinger is not only faster, more luxurious and from a brand with higher reliability ratings than the Audi S5, but it’s also significantly less expensive.
