Kia has continually refined its Stinger to offer ever more value since it was introduced in 2018. The changes for 2022 are a little bit more encompassing, with a subtle refresh of the already standout styling and a new, larger 10.25-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system. Changes under the hood are certain to be popular with the Stinger's target audience. The entry-level 2.0-liter turbo engine is replaced by a larger 2.5-liter turbo, and power increases from 255 hp to a more robust 300 hp. Meanwhile, the range-topping turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 gets a bump in power to 368 hp. There's a new, sportier-sounding exhaust for the V6 engine, too, which will appeal to driving enthusiasts.
The trim levels have been simplified for 2022. The GT-Line is still the entry point; it comes impressively equipped and is powered by the 2.5-liter engine. Above that are the GT1 and GT2 models that use the V6 and include driver-focused equipment such as Brembo brakes and a limited-slip differential. All feature an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard rear-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive offered as an option. The Stinger is a great-driving car that's loaded with value. If you can live without the premium badge that some people expect on this type of car, you'll be very well served by the 2022 Kia Stinger. It's among the top sport sedans you can buy.

If you want to inject some performance capability into your daily driving, the 2022 Kia Stinger comes with two turbocharged engines that deliver. The base GT-Line trim features a new engine for the Stinger: a turbocharged 2.5L, four-cylinder engine making 300 hp and 311 lb-ft of torque. The mid and upper trims (GT1 and GT2) have a twin-turbo 3.3L V6 that delivers 368 hp and a top speed of 167 mph (according to the manufacturer, when new).
In addition to its exciting mid-generation refresh, the 2022 Kia Stinger debuts a brand-new special edition: the Scorpion. Available with the range-topping GT2 trim, the Scorpion appearance package gives the sports sedan a darker, edgier look and includes a functional rear spoiler, black on black multi-spoke 19-inch wheels, and glossy black and chrome exterior finishing.
The 2022 Kia Stinger is first and foremost a driver's car and is equipped with the latest driver-assistance features. This car has got your back, no matter the circumstances or conditions.
