Kia Stinger Spy Shots Reveals New Rear Design




Today we have a new pair of spy pictures of the Kia Stinger facelift that for the first time allow us to see the design changes, including a new wide-type taillights that we imagined but now we can see how it looks and I think give it a futuristic touch. What do you think? Hit the jump to see the picture of Stinger GT.

What we know so far?
An article from AutoPostKorea is talking about some new changes to the Kia Stinger Facelift will be adding. Kia has launched the 2020 Stinger recently, including new trims like the GT-Line, that for only $100 extra comes more loaded than the exiting Base trim, and this will be its third year since the Stinger came out for production so that means its soon to receive a facelift.
Reports says we should expect the facelift around July next year. On December Kia posted their sales for the month of November and the Stinger its slowly decreasing its sales compare to last year 1,173, 2019 sales went down to 1,0057. Year to date sales for 2019 we have 12,827 but 2018 sales were as high as 15,517.
Now we know, as far as performance wise, based from the Hyundai Sonata and soon Kia Optima the new Drive Wise has been applied to the 2.0 Turbo gasoline and 2.2 Diesel engines. So we can expect this to be applied in some form at the facelift Stinger.


With the 3.3 Twin-turbo, itíll come with new features such as headlight adjustment with the turn of the steering wheel and a new driverís bolster control system with the switch to Sport Mode (something seen at the Genesis G70).
What can we expect for the facelift?
Now with the interior itís said the Dark Red Pack interior, which was only available for the 3.3 Turbo Gasoline GT model, could be also available for the 2.0 Turbo Gasoline and 2.2 Diesel Platinum models.
Stay tuned for more details or spyshots.

First Changes on Kia Stinger Facelift Front End




Finally we have got the first spy pictures that shows changes in the front end of the Kia Stinger Facelift after several set of pictures. Thanks to the our colleagues at AutoPost we can see a new LED DRL signature that can mean a change into the headlight design. Unlike other Hyundai-Kia models, which undergoes major changes when its time to a launch partial change model or facelift, the front part of the new Stinger is almost similar to the existing one.

What we know so far?
The overall headlamp shape, daytime running lights, and LED turn indicators are very similar to the previous one, and the positions of the vertical aero fender garnishes on both ends of the bumper are the same. On the other hand, the interior detail of the headlight was an existing one-hole projection LED, but it seems to have changed to a small-sized three-hole projection LED.
The unchanged side design changed the mood by applying a new wheel. The original Y-shaped five-spoke wheel design has been changed to a new sporty wheel. The star-shaped wheel cap and 10 spokes were placed in the center of the wheel in a balanced manner, making it look like a 5-spoke wheel, while giving it a bigger look.


Subsequently, the estimated 18-inch wheel was changed from the existing compact symmetric wheel design to a pinwheel shape. Unlike the existing 18-inch wheels, which are stable and neat, the new wheels are expected to give a dynamic feeling as if they are spinning even when stopped.
The rear has a completely new type of tail lamp, and it reverses the overall atmosphere. The long tail lamp design is similar, but unlike the current model, it is all lit up to the middle. It is similar to the design of the tail lamp of the Kia Motors sedan in recent years, but it is as tidy as it has been long. At the bottom of the tail lamp, a point-emitting LED turn indicator and a reversing light are applied, and the circular quad muffler tip is the same as before.
On the other hand, the Kia Stinger partial change model will be equipped with a 2.5-liter gasoline turbo engine with a maximum output of 304 hp and a maximum torque of 43 kg.m, and a 3.5-liter gasoline turbo engine with a maximum output of 380 hp and a maximum torque of 54 kg.m. to be.
