Kia Stinger to sell here from $48,990+ORC

The Kia Stinger will launch here in October with a starting price of $48,990+ORC for the 272kW and 510Nm Stinger S.

KIA AUSTRALIA has announced pricing for the V6 Kia Stinger which will launch in Australia in October, with the Stinger S kicking off from $48,990+ORC; through to $55,990+ORC for the mid-spec Si and $59,990+ORC for the GT. Pricing for the 2.0-litre model is in the final stages of being settled and will be released as soon as it has been finalised.

“It was critical for us to bring this car to as wide an audience as possible … something I believe we have achieved with the pricing we have been able to settle on,” Kia Motors Australia Chief Operating Officer, Damien Meredith said.

“From the outset it was a goal to get a bi-turbo V6 into the market under $50,000. We have done that with room to spare.”

Mr Meredith said the decision to announce 3.3-litre pricing ahead of the Stinger’s October arrival was to provide confidence to the substantial number of buyers who have shown faith in putting down a deposit without knowing a final price.

“Almost all of the confirmed orders are for the 3.3-litre, so it makes sense to provide those customers with as much clarity as we can while they wait to take possession of their new cars.”

The Stinger runs a 3.3-litre bi-turbo V6 range. With 272kW of power and 510Nm of torque the Stinger is capable of a launch control assisted 4.9 second 0-100km/h sprint and a low 13 second standing quarter.

    Great price, cheap enough to make the Euro trash feel embarrassed one hopes and how silly does it make the likes of Infiniti feel for their overpriced rubbish. Holden should be feeling nervous too with no performance option in the next gen Opel. Masterstroke from Kia, and I’m looking forward to the G70 even more.
