Kia Stinger a refreshed design for the high-performance fastback sports sedan, first images have been released by Kia Motors. Modifications to the appearance of the improved model amplify its Gran Turismo character with an enhanced cabin quality and more customisation options.
The upgraded model revealed at first in Korean specification for Kia’s domestic market, boasts a range of design updates, inside and out.
Kia’s signature ‘tiger-nose’ grille lies between multifaceted reflector LED headlamps, with a new design and LED daytime running lights at the front of the Stinger. The new lamps appear darker and sleeker giving more high-tech light signature with sharp slashes of light angled slightly towards the front.
At the rear, a svelte rear combination lamp displays a unique light signature extending the full width of the car mimicking the shape of the subtle spoiler integrated into the trunk lid. The turn signals contain a collection of 10 individual LED units each, arranged in a grid pattern to imitate the appearance of a checkered flag used in motorsport to signal the end of a race. The cabin also features a new mood lighting system with 64 options from which the driver can select one to alter the character of the cabin.
Karim Habib, Senior Vice President and Head, Kia Global Design said: “The Stinger projects an air of elegance and comfort and also a great purpose for long-distance driving. The updated model builds on the svelte Gran Turismo design we introduced three years ago with modern flair and a subtle hint of aggression to enhance its on-road presence. The interior too has been enhanced, and the new design elements and technologies incorporated into the Stinger reconfirm its credentials as the consummate grand tourer.”
