This is the facelifted 2021 Kia Stinger. The South Korean automaker’s premium sports sedan never sold in huge numbers. Though this effort to even give it a facelift for this year means Kia has sold a good number of these globally for it to remain in production.
Up front, the 2021 Kia Stinger gets a revised front bumper. While the overall look is similar to the previous model’s, the new bronze elements give it a more elegant look. There’s also a new pair of LED headlights along with new alloy wheel designs ranging from 18 to 19 inches in diameter. The most significant changes happen at the back, wherein Kia’s designers fitted a full-width LED bar that connects the taillights. Kia is proud to highlight the new turn signals, which feature 10 LEDs arranged in a way that it mimics a checkered flag.
Interior changes are also quite minimal, though these are all welcome. The main highlight of the addition of Kia’s latest 10.25-inch touch screen infotainment system. Kia’s designers have also improved the 2021 Kia Stinger’s interior atmosphere through the addition of contrast stitching and ambient LED lighting on the dashboard and doors. Drivers are able to select from 64 different colors for the ambient lighting to suit every mood.
Certain markets where the 2021 Kia Stinger will be sold will be available in a few luxurious upgrades. South Korean buyers can opt for an all-brown Nappa Leather interior. Red, black, and beige Nappa Leather upholstery will also be available in other markets.
More information about the facelifted Kia Stinger will be revealed soon. This includes details about the new powertrain choice and other driver-assist technologies.
