Kia is a brand that has come a long way in a short amount of time. When the company debuted in 1994, the only model was the tiny Sephia. The car didn’t offer much of anything except for a cheap price tag. Take a look at Kia now and you are sure to see a top-end car that you could see yourself driving in. The Stinger is Kia’s attempt to corner the sport sedan market. The Stinger offers a bold styling and a roomy interior that’s complete with racing seats and everything. Most of what the car has to offer is exceptional, except for one thing. The price tag.
The Stinger is priced at $33,000 just to start, and that’s getting into premium car territory. That’s not to say that the Stinger is a bad car by any means. But Kia hasn’t justified itself as a premium car brand yet, and to command those kinds of prices there needs to be some sort of a reputation behind it. The Stinger is a beautiful car, but let’s have a few years go by and see how the Stinger’s reputation has come along.
