Kia makes good looking cars and the new Kia Stinger is a beautiful hatchback which comes with a decent performing capacity with it. The future of the car can be a fate twist which could further it’s approach into a a more future-oriented drift in which buyers might also want those changes as well. Thankfully, it appears Kia isn’t ready to label the Stinger as a one-off kind of proposition.
The Kia Stinger just like other cars will receive a midcycle refresh which according to a new interview by Top Gear, Kia’s head of design Karim Habib said said that “We just wanted to strengthen a few things” he said and specifically made mention of the car’s lighting system, whereby the car gets new headlights. Also, it will come with some few physical tweaks here and there.
With that, the Kia Stinger is awaiting confirmation about a face lift even though not the first time those will be heard about the car altogether as a report in April from Australia has it that the Stinger refresh will also include a bump in power even though that is not clear if it would include both the 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 and the 3.3 liter twin-turbo V6 engine.
There have in fact been rumors that the 2.0 liter engine might just be dropped off in favor of a newer 2.5-liter design which will also see duty in the updated Kia Optima. Habib seems very optimistic that the Stinger will lay the groundwork for the future of other Kia vehicles as we wonder what lies ahead of the future of the Stinger in its entirety. “I definitely hope that the spirit of the Stinger stays at the core of what Kia is as we change as a brand,” Habib told Top Gear. “As the technology goes toward EVs and as the world and its appetite for these kinds of cars changes, the concept probably has to evolve as well … But the sporty, affordable, beautiful sculpture — I really believe that’s something that needs to live on in the brand.”
