News Kia Stinger Future Still Up In The Air

Kia Stinger Future Still Up In The Air

  • Kia says a Stinger successor is still being studied and no decision has been made on a new generation


The Kia Stinger may not be redesigned into a new generation according to a recent report.

We first reported on the Stinger’s uncertain future about a year ago and it seems that Kia is still mulling it over. It’s not surprising given the SUV-crazed market they are currently operating in, but we would hate to see the Stinger go.

The most recent report comes from Australia’s CarGuide who spoke with Roland Rivero who manages product planning for Kia in Australia.

“As for what the next-generation [Stinger] model will look like, that’s something that’s still under study and still to be confirmed. You could argue with a longer life there’s longer opportunity to decide and make that decision. But no decision has been made on the next-generation model.”

Kia Stinger Spied With A Facelift

Although surprisingly competent and beautifully styled, the Kia Stinger never managed to reach the high expectations Kia had for it. Sales numbers were decent, but not near the objectives Kia laid out for its flagship sedan.

The Stinger was refreshed for 2021, but only slightly with no major changes or improvements. Chances are Kia will stretch out this current generation for as long as possible before pulling the plug and leaving the top of its sedan lineup to the new 2021 Kia K5.
