the Kia Stinger has to beat

the Kia Stinger has to beatHolden will replace the 6.2-litre V8 and 3.6-litre V6 Commodore range with a locally-tuned import from 2018, based on the Opel Insignia, with front-wheel drive 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and diesel options, and a 230kW AWD V6 flagship.

When we asked Holden’s Australia’s communications chief Sean Poppitt this week what the company thought about such an unexpected rival laying down the gauntlet, he diplomatically said “good luck to them”.

Here’s the quick take on the Stinger: it’s a rear-wheel-drive, four-door fastback sedan that will be offered with a twin-turbo V6 that makes 365 horsepower. It also was tuned on the Nurburgring and designed in Europe. Finally, it promises to push the Kia brand to a whole new dimension of performance and luxury.

Kia also appears to be exploring the idea of a fully electric version. Our Kia rep acknowledges that the industry is well on the road to electrification, but says there are no plans to electrify the Stinger—hybrid, plug-in, or EV–in the near term.
