The Stinger Is More Than A Performance Car

Look beyond the exterior design, and the 2021 Stinger is made for a smooth and comfortable ride. It also delivers a sport-injected experience, thanks to its 8-speed automatic transmission and paddle shifters that provide a more versatile driving experience than the 2021 Civic R's 6-speed manual transmission. And you also get cool touches with the Stinger, like a D-shaped steering wheel, plus key safety features like Lane Keep Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance and Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go. These technologies outclass the Type R, which does not come with this array of safety systems.

Compare These Two Sports Cars In Augusta, GA

The 2021 Stinger is Kia's first-ever high-performance sport sedan, and it comes with plenty of technology and power, thanks to its available 365 horsepower and a 0-60 acceleration time of just 4.7 seconds! The 2021 Nissan 370Z sports car achieves a peak of 350 horsepower, a little less than the Stinger. The Nissan model falls far short in the technology and features department, like with its maximum 8-speaker Bose Audio system. The 2021 Stinger's available 15-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system is a masterpiece in comparison. The 2021 Stinger also checks in with a lower price for its V6 trims, edging out the 370Z's Touring and NISMO models.

Fresh Vs. Dated

Often, a new model is a better model since it offers the latest style, features and technologies available. The Kia Stinger recently proved this when it lit up the market with its debut, backing up its stunning design with aggressive performance and luxurious amenities. Nissan's 370Z is still an enticing car, but an aging one that is being replaced. Contact us today and schedule a test drive of a new Kia Stinger in Augusta, GA!

Stinger Vs. Toyota 86 In Augusta, GA

Compare Performance & Specs Now

The sleek, spacious and powerful 2021 Kia Stinger faces unlikely competition from an undersized and underpowered sports car called the Toyota 86. While Toyota brings affordable sports car performance to the road, its shortcomings are evident when compared to the new Stinger.

Explore Standard Performance & Interior Space

The 2021 Kia Stinger comes with 255 hp in its base 4-cylinder engine editions, which bests the 86's 200 or 205 hp by a wide margin. That's not all for the Stinger, which has a faster 0-60 time in its 4-cylinder version, with a 5.9-second sprint to 60 MPH, topping the 86's 6.4-second 0-60 time. Of course, for even more performance, the Stinger lineup offers a 365-hp engine available with either RWD or AWD, while the Toyota 86 offers just its standard 4-cylinder, RWD configuration.

The 2021 Kia Stinger also comes with amenities that suit both a driving enthusiast and someone who needs their car for a family trip. It's nearly 94 cubic feet of passenger space and 40.9 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity with the rear seating folded down help make the Stinger the clear choice for practicality, too! For comparison, the Toyota 86 comes with a tiny 6.9 cubic feet of cargo space and a paltry 76.5 cubic feet of passenger room. Check out the new Kia Stinger when you visit Kia of Augusta!
