Kia Motors Invites Consumers to a Unique Test Drive Experience for the 2018 Kia Stinger

If  all the recent hype about the new Kia Stinger has captivated you, and if you  happen to live near Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, or Washington, D.C., you just might have a chance to experience the new flagship model from Kia Motors in a unique test drive on a track with a professional driving instructor.

The Kia Stinger has been named "Vehicle of the Year" by CNET's Roadshow and "Best of the Year" by MotorWeek. Now, Kia Motors says they are ready to show consumers and enthusiasts what all the hype is about with the performance-oriented "Stinger Experience" test drive events in select cities.

Stinger Experience participants will take on several dynamic challenges in the Stinger GT, as well as in the Audi A5, BMW 640i Gran Coupe and Porsche Panamera, through various dynamic exercises, including a 0-60 MPH acceleration run, cornering tests and a slalom course.

"With a faster top-speed and 0-60 time than a six-cylinder Porsche Panamera, the Stinger GT is like nothing anyone has ever seen from Kia before and must be driven to be fully appreciated and understood," said Saad Chehab, vice president, marketing communications, Kia Motors America. "The Stinger Experience gives people an opportunity to see and feel for themselves just how far Kia has come, and that the Stinger can hold its head high against some of the best that Germany has to offer."

The Stinger Experience tour schedule includes stops in Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C. While there are no direct sales opportunities at the Stinger Experiences, on-site specialists can refer those interested in purchasing a Stinger to one of Kia's nearly 800 dealerships nationwide.

Designed in Frankfurt and developed on Germany's famed Nürburgring under the watchful eyes of two auto industry legends – Peter Schreyer, Kia Motors' chief design officer, and Albert Biermann, president and head of vehicle test and high-performance development – the Stinger delivers head-turning design, premium amenities and heart-pounding power while giving consumers a lot of automotive bang for the buck.

Available in both rear- and all-wheel-drive, the Stinger GT trim, with its twin-turbo V6, boasts some impressive stats, producing 365 horsepower with a top speed of 167 miles per hour and zero to 60 in 4.7 seconds.
