The Kia Stinger Is Officially Quicker Than A Chevy SS

2y ago


Uhhhhh. Wow. I'm impressed here.

If you talk to anyone that writes or is friends with the Shifting Lanes crew, which you probably haven't, you'll know that I'm not a fan of how this car looks. Most people have been praising it up and down, but I really just don't like it. I also don't like the car as a whole. I think Kia missed a golden opportunity to make a really great 2-door sports car, much like their Stinger GT4 concept pictured below.

If Kia wanted some notoriety, why not do it and show off some prowess with an Mx-5 Miata figher? I'm sure it had a lot to do with sales and not "see what we can do", but I still think they missed the mark. Here's the thing. It largely doesn't matter what I say because the actual, 4-door stinger just beat the Chevy SS, or Holden Commodore, in a 0-60 run. That's legitimately impressive.

Kia, if you're listening, I'm sorry for my transgressions. Please let me drive one. Please?

  • It’s a properly quick vehicle and it looks great. Kia has placed performance like BMW 335i within reach of a lot people. Yes it’s not a BMW but it’s well built and will most likely be reliable. My dad would always tell me how Japanese cars were regarded as crap back then cause american and European ruled the world, welcome to the ranks Kia! Good job indeed.

    • Yes. Back in the 60s and 70s Japanese cars were looked upon as shitty vehicles. History proves otherwise. I’m sorry bro I didn’t make myself clear I get your confusion. People...
