New Kia Stinger priced from £31995

New Kia Stinger priced from £31995”

There will be five different variants, with three trims - GT-Line, GT-Line S and GT-S - with a choice of three turbocharged engines.

The headline act is the Stinger GT-S with its 365bhp 3.3 litre V6 T-GDi engine, but there's also a 2.0 litre 244bhp T-GDi and a 197bho 2.2 litre CRDi turbodiesel too for the more economically minded.

The new Kia Stinger was revealed in United Kingdom spec at the beginning of the year, and the order books have now opened as specs and prices are revealed for Kia's new GT auto.

With this engine under the bonnet, the Stinger will accelerate from a standstill to 60mph in 4.7 seconds and will continue to a top speed of 168mph. United Kingdom buyers can get one from as low as £31,995 ($42,845) in the base spec GT-Line.

The petrol option will take the Stinger - touted by Kia as a "game-changer" - from 0-60mph in 5.8 seconds, while the diesel will complete the same sprint in 7.3 seconds.

GT-Line models get a nine-speaker sound system, but the GT-Line S and GT-S come with Harmon Kardon sound, with GT-Lien S and GT-S also getting a 360-degree around-view monitor.

Although the diesel power plant is slower off the mark than the petrol, it offers superior fuel economy, with Kia claiming it can achieve 50.4mpg on the combined cycle as opposed to the petrol's 35.8mpg figure.

The Kia Stinger will be available to order from January 1, 2018, with deliveries starting later next year.

Not only is the Stinger GT Kia's first ever rear-wheel drive auto, but it is also the fastest vehicle it has ever built with the top of the range model being able to go from 0-60mph in just 4.7 seconds.

Standard driver safety assistance system include Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Driver Attention Warning and Speed Limit Information. The first two specifications come with 18-inch alloys, while the GT-S has 19-inch alloys fitted as well as electronic adaptive suspension.
