The 2022 Kia Stinger brings its classic enthusiastic spirit to the streets of Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and Tampa Bay, FL. Automotive connoisseurs and new drivers alike will enjoy the thrills and power the 2022 Stinger has to offer.
The three-trim Stinger lineup is comprised of the GT-Line, GT1, and GT2 models with two engine variants on deck. As we said above, the base Stinger GT-Line is bringing more standard horsepower than ever before with its 300-horsepower 2.5-liter turbocharged engine. Stinger GT1 and GT2 models are fitted with a 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that is capable of producing up to 368 horsepower on the streets of St. Petersburg. The competing 2021 Honda Civic Type R limits shoppers to just one engine option in both trim levels with a maximum of 306 horsepower on board.
The 2022 Stinger brings in an abundance of in-car technology that can’t be found in the competing Honda model. The Stinger features a wireless phone charger, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, navigation, Surround View Monitor, and more that make this Stinger more than worth the money.
When shoppers choose the Stinger over the Civic Type R, not only will they get more features for their money, but they’ll be backed by a longer and more reliable warranty. Kia backs up every one of its models with a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty to keep its drivers covered for the long haul. Honda on the other hand limits its drivers to a powertrain warranty that lasts just 5 years or 60,000 miles.
