Kia Stinger Interior Named One of Wards 10 Best
Wards, the automotive experts who have been evaluating and rating design and quality advancements since 1924, has named the Kia Stinger to their list of 10 Best Automotive Interiors for 2018. Read on to see what criteria were used to make that designation and what you can expect when you test drive a Kia Stinger of your own.
How Did the Kia Stinger Make the Cut?
Every year, Wards evaluates more than three dozen vehicles for its Best Interiors list, exploring fit, finish, ease of use, comfort, and other factors that matter to consumers. While it’s seldom a surprise when luxury cars are added to the list, Rogers car shoppers are right to sit up and take notice when a budget-friendly option like the Stinger makes the list.
So, what about the new Stinger interior was so compelling? According to the reviewers, it was features like:
- Standard Leather Trim
- Soft-Touch Materials
- Real Aluminum Accents
- User-Friendly Infotainment System
- Intuitive Steering Wheel Mounted Controls
- Easy to Navigate Drive Mode Selection
- Lever-Controlled Seat Heater
- Disappearing Central Screen
- High-Definition Navigation System
- Centrally-Located Climate Controls
- Thick, Comfortable Bolsters and Seat Cushions
- Paddle Shifters With 8-Speed Automatic Transmission
- 40.9 Cubic Feet of Interior Cargo Potential
- LED Ambient Lighting
- Intuitive Touchscreen Menus
- High-Performance Audio Options
The experts at Wards felt that these features, and the Stinger’s inviting, accommodating interior represented some of the best design modern vehicles had to offer, particularly when they considered how much of the Stinger’s interior luxury came at no additional cost to the consumer.
The Stinger’s interior isn’t the only aspect of this innovative sedan that has critics talking, however. Wards also names the Stinger’s 3.3L twin-turbo V6 engine to its own Top 10 list thanks to responsiveness, abundant horsepower, and 29 mpg/highway efficiency that will get Coon Rapids drivers where they need to go.
