Re: Kia debuts Stinger GT

The more I look at it the more I love it. I seriously don't see this CUV craze lasting into the next decade, so it's good to see unique new products outside of the hot segments.

To me, it's an Audi from the back. But altogether it's a good looking car. Wait until the tuners get to it...

Really? I'm seeing more Alfa Romeo than Audi in the rear.

I think he meant A7 rear. The way the rear hatch/trunk has a sharp edge(subtle spoiler) and the taillight surface looks flat.

Ahh, I can see that. Here's what i was referring to:




Now that I see my comparison side by side though, I think it's just the red color and the quad pipes.

Never have I been okay with the thought of buying a Kia until this car, though!

Re: Kia debuts Stinger GT

I've decided that unless someone else comes out with something super cool today, this stole the show for me. Honestly i find myself really excited at the thought of buying something like this.

Tbh what I really want to see is the next gen Volvo S60 and V60 so that I can see the next V60 T6R.

The Stinger was the best thing at the show for me thus far. Don't think we are going to see the S60 or V70 yet, XC60 should be at Geneva.

That's the second time I've heard this now. Pretty amazing that Kia is stealing the auto show...
