  • What is MSRP?

    MSRP stands for Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price, sometimes also known as the sticker price. Because this price is only a suggestion, a dealer can choose to sell a vehicle above—or, more often, below—MSRP.

  • What is Market Average?

    Based on actual recent transactions other buyers have made, the Market Average shows you the average price others paid for vehicles similar to the one you want, while taking into account that most of these vehicles have different option combinations from the ones you specified.

  • Statewide, Regional, and National Data

    If there are insufficient transactions in your area, we calculate your Market Average by gathering statewide, regional, or national data. Because this data can come from a large geographical area it may not be as representative of your local market.

2022 Kia Stinger Model Description

What's New The Stinger gets an exterior styling refresh; The base GT-Line gets a more powerful engine; New standard and optional in-cabin features; Scorpion Special Edition debuts

The Kia Stinger presents excellent value for a sports sedan, offering many standard features and a lengthy warranty on a car that is enjoyable to drive daily. It has good practicality, with a hatchback cargo space that can hold much more than comparable sedans and available all-wheel-drive for four-season driving. Kia provides two turbocharged engine options on a platform that is nimble and fun to drive. The cabin styling rivals German competitors, though some materials are not as premium. Kia also does not offer many options for personalizing the Stinger, choosing instead to equip the top-of-the-line GT2 trim with all of the fanciest amenities like Nappa leather and a head-up display. The Stinger is as comfortable to drive as it is fun, making it a great choice for those who want one car that can do many things.

Kia offers the Stinger in three trim levels: GT-Line, GT1, and GT2. Rear-wheel-drive comes standard across the lineup; shoppers can add all-wheel-drive for $2,200. For around $36,500, the entry-level GT-Line includes notable features like power-folding outside mirrors, automatic headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, front and rear USB ports, wireless phone charging, keyless entry/ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. All new Stingers have Kia's driver safety technology suite, which includes a backup camera, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-keep assist. An optional Sun and Sound Package upgrades the GT-Line's infotainment system to an 8.0-inch display with navigation. It also adds a Harman Kardon premium audio system, a sunroof, and a power passenger seat for $2,900. The GT1 trim includes those optional items in its $44,000 price, plus a more powerful engine and several mechanical upgrades. Other amenities include an auto-dimming rearview mirror, LED headlights with automatic high beams, rain-sensing wipers, a power steering column, driver's seat memory, heated/cooled front seats, forward-collision warning, and Driver Attention Warning. The GT2 has similar driving performance to the GT1. Its loftier price of $52,500 adds a hands-free power trunk, dynamic headlights, a surround-view camera, and a head-up display Nappa leather upholstery, a 16-way power driver's seat, and heated rear outboard seats.

The Kia Stinger separates itself from the average family sedan with its sporty powertrain, which balances quick acceleration and tenacious handling for a fun driving experience. It offers similar power and performance to European sports sedans for a significantly reduced price. It also comes with a best-in-class 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, providing extra confidence over the long term. The GT-Line trim has a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 300 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. It is fast and enjoyable to drive and employs an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The EPA estimates its fuel economy at 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. It comes standard with 18-inch wheels wrapped in all-season tires, while torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive is optional. The GT1 and GT2 trims get several performance upgrades, starting with a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine producing 368 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque. EPA-estimated fuel economy is 18 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. These trims also come equipped with 19-inch wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport summer-performance tires, a limited-slip differential, and Brembo brakes.

If it were not for the large 'Kia' emblem on the steering wheel, it would be difficult to tell the Stinger apart from more expensive European rivals. The cabin feels sporty and modern, with a wing-like dashboard design, turbine-shaped air vents, and understated color choices. The touchscreen sits atop the low dashboard, with easy operation and standard smartphone apps for seamless integration. Drivers get a leather-wrapped wheel and metal-accented pedals. The GT2 adds a head-up display, which projects navigation directions and other vital data directly onto the windshield to minimize distraction from the road ahead. The cabin remains quiet and relaxing, even at highway speeds. Kia used sound-absorbing front door windows and other insulating materials to give the interior rare refinement and tranquility at its price. The cabin has excellent attention to detail throughout, with lovely details like the leather stitching and the metal audio speaker grilles. There is good outward visibility all-around. Some competitors have slightly fancier interior accents, though the GT2's Nappa leather can compete with any upholstery in the class. There is plenty of headroom in both rows, and those in the front have excellent leg space. There isn't quite as much legroom in the back, but it is adequate. Behind the seats is 23.3 cubic feet of cargo space, which dwarfs competitors. Even better, you can flip down the back seats to make 40.9 cubic feet of capacity, should you need to haul bulky items.

The Starting Market Average is a proprietary mathematical calculation based on actual recent transactions. It provides a statistically accurate understanding of what other buyers are paying for the least expensive configuration of this vehicle. Adjustments to the calculation beyond make, model, and trim are normalized based on detailed, anonymized transaction information. This accounts for the fact that most or all recently-sold vehicles included different option combinations. The data underlying the Starting Market Average calculation are filtered for extreme outliers and subjected to a weighted averaging process that considers factors such as the recency of transactions and the timing of data lags. In certain instances, the calculated result is adjusted to take account of abrupt changes in the market that may not yet be fully reflected by recent transaction prices. In all cases where the Starting Market Average is shown there is sufficient sample size and transaction detail to be statistically reliable.
