Kia Stinger 'Best Sports Saloon of the Year'
Added: 15 January 2019
Evo magazine has named the all-new Kia Stinger as its Sports Saloon of the Year.
The Stinger is Kia’s first gran turismo. The top-of-the-ranger ‘GT S’ model has a capability of 0-60mph in just 4.7 seconds, thanks to its outstanding 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 engine, making it the fasted-accelerating car Kia has ever manufactured.
Launched just last year, the Stinger has already won a succession of prestigious awards.
Stuart Gallagher, Editor at the motoring magazine, commented on the sensational Stinger’s achievement: “The combination of grunt, just enough grip, and a long wheelbase deliver approachable, old-school rear-wheel-drive thrills. It engages and entertains more than the competition and stands out for not being the default choice.
“Yet what’s really exciting is that his is Kia’s first attempt at cracking the quick saloon formula, so it’s only going to get better.”
Paul Philpott, CEO and President of Kia Motors UK, added: “We are delighted that the Stinger has won yet another award. Evo is a true enthusiasts magazine with particularly high standards in terms of acknowledging high performance vehicles – so to win this award is particularly gratifying.”
