Back in 2017, Kia Motors Corporation has released a proper fastback that’s quite extraordinary. The Kia Stinger echoes style and substance, with it going beyond aesthetics by having capable performance and exciting driving dynamics. After more than 2 years, Kia finally reveals images of the model’s mid-cycle refresh, and it certainly looks better than ever.
This upgraded model boasts a number of design improvements inside and out. Starting with the exterior, it still gets the brand’s design trademark which is the ‘Tiger-Nose’ grille as it’s situated in between the new reflector type LED headlamps with Daytime Running Lights (DRLs). Apart from that, this refreshed Stinger also gets new shoes, as it can either be had with a set of new 18-inch or 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
The rear also has a fresher look, given that it also gets a new pair of taillights, which sports a different lighting pattern and is now connected as one. Notably, this fastback sedan gets a performance-inspired rear diffuser, which further enhances the overall appearance of the rear.
Inside, the familiar cabin remains unchanged, although it does sport a range of subtle enhancements. This includes the center console which is available in either aluminum or a carbon fiber-style trim. Depending on specification, the dashboard and doors have been redone as well, finished with new contrast stitching which further heightens the overall sportiness of the cabin.
Notably, the overall ambiance of the interior is well complemented by the 64-color mood lighting system, allowing drivers to select their preferred mood light color while on a cruise. Lastly, in-car entertainment is provided by the brand’s upgraded 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment and navigation system.
No official words with its engine yet, although sources say that there is no apparent change to commence given that this is just a mid-cycle refresh. The new Kia Stinger is set to go on sale in its home country, Korea, during the third quarter of 2020. We really do hope that it reaches our shores as well in order to have a proper test of this sweet ride. For now, Kia still sells the pre-facelift model locally.
