Kia’s 2022 Stinger updated with a more luxurious interior


Kia in mid-August introduced its updated Stinger for the 2022 model year, highlighting the sedan’s slightly modified styling and added luxury to the interior.Up front there are new LED headlights and Kia’s “Tiger Nose” grille has been lightly massaged to better match the aggressive contours of the Stinger’s fairing.

At the rear, the taillights have been revised to stretch over the deck cover, which is very trendy these days. According to Kia, the design is supposed to mimic that of a checkered flag. Rounding out the exterior changes were new 18- and 19-inch rim designs, larger exhaust tips and a rear diffuser.

Inside the cockpit you’ll now find contrast stitching, glossy black accents and metallic trims. The infotainment display has gone from an 8.0-inch screen to a 10.25-inch unit; and colorful ambient lighting is now available.

Kia is keeping a secret about the new Stinger’s powertrain, but we’ve got a few thoughts on it. The current Stinger’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 3.3-liter V6 will likely be replaced by the 2.5-liter turbo-four and 3.5-liter turbo V6 of the new Genesis G80; the engines produce 300 and 375 horsepower, respectively.

We can’t wait to hear more about the refreshed Stinger closer to its reveal date, which Kia says will be later this year.
