Kia Stinger

Recommended Posts

I was just reading last year's tow car awards and the Kia Stinger gets a good write up.

 

Reasonably heavy and better than the Kia Optima apparently.

 

Not really thinking about one but was just curious as it's a car I've not come across before. I'm guessing they could be pretty good value second hand of they haven't sold well.

Someone on the Swift-Talk forum had one and was pleased with it. They do seem rather nice and (to me) nicer than the VW Arteon.

Gosh, I'm out of touch. I've no idea what an Arteon is either!

 

Googled it, I have seen one but thought it was a Passat coupe.

Arteon is lovely and current Towcar of the year (Practical Caravan?)

 

Stinger does look good but most of the write ups have been the V6 not sure the diesel is as impressive.

 

As a french car enthusiast, a new-shape 508 SW is right on my radar

If the Lottery comes up on Saturday, I will be putting an order in for a Renault Alpine, no ifs no buts

A neighbour has the petrol version and is very pleased with it, the only downside as a tow car is the max towing  weight of 1500 Kg for all variants

Ah, that kind of rules it out for us then. Interesting car though

The perol ones are pretty quick especially v6 turbos! Could be thirsty towing!

Good value for money too with excellent warranty.

I recently had a test drive of a Kia Stinger 3.3GTS.

 

The engine, 8 speed auto and RWD chassis all make for a great driving experience.

 

The interior while not up to Merc/Audi standards is pretty good and the infotainment with Harmon Kardon sound was bang upto date with a great sound.

 

Obviously not sure of the towing ability but with a firm suspension setup,  370PS and 510NM from 1300rpm I can't see it having to many problems with it's 1500kg tow limit.
