And now Kia Stinger for the first time will be revealed in this region on the floors of 2017 Dubai International Motor Show for public viewing. Yet that’s not the best news, the greatest news is 2018 Kia Stinger will be available at your nearest Al Majid Motors the sole distributors and agents here in the UAE. Below is the official press release by Al Majid Motors.
KIA Motors Corp., through its sole UAE distributor Al Majid Motors Co., has announced the highly anticipated pre-launch of the all-new KIA Stinger – a powerful fastback sports sedan – which will be arriving at UAE showrooms by the end of November and make its official debut at the Dubai International Motor Show from the 14th to 18th of the same month.
KIA’s European design studio in Frankfurt, overseen by Peter Schreyer, Chief Design Officer of KIA Motors, and Gregory Guillaume, Chief Designer at KIA Motors Europe, has brought the Stinger to life by channeling the powerful, elegant spirit of historic grand tourers that transported their owners in style and at speed. At every stage of development, the KIA Stinger has been designed and engineered to be the perfect ‘Gran Turismo’ vehicle, featuring a head-turning aesthetic; ample room for five occupants and their luggage; a stable, smooth ride; and nimble handling with engaging, rear-biased power delivery.
Delivering exhilarating power, the KIA Stinger will be available with a choice of either a 2.0-litre turbo gasoline engine or a commanding 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. Both are paired with the second-generation of KIA’s electronic eight-speed automatic transmission, which is fitted as standard with all engines. The Stinger is KIA’s first sedan to be available with either rear or all-wheel drive – the latter offering enhanced dynamic capability in even the most challenging conditions. Combined with a body shell that provides an ultra-stiff foundation for the car’s suspension components, the ride is smooth, quiet and unruffled from start to finish.
Ensuring the comfort of everyone on board, the Stinger is also equipped as standard with KIA’s Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), providing stability under braking and cornering conditions by controlling the car’s Electronic Stability Control (ESC) if it detects a loss of traction.
The all-new KIA Stinger has nothing to do with being the first to arrive at the destination, but is instead designed to delight those who love the journey. To discover the highest-performance production vehicle in KIA’s history, customers are urged to visit their nearest KIA showroom and schedule test drives that promise to deliver the ultimate ‘gran turismo’ experience.
