Before being potentially converted to electricity (or rechargeable hybrid transitional version) the last born of the Korean manufacturer will be divided in a more pragmatic release.
Discovery at the recent Detroit Auto Show, the Kia Stinger will cross the Atlantic.
Head to the Geneva Motor Show at the beginning of March next year where the simulated four-door coupe sedan will make its debut on the old continent.
This exhibition at the Palexpo will also be the occasion for Kia to present its car with a diesel engine (coupled to the 8-speed automatic transmission) as confirmed by Albert Biermann.
We then find the Stinger equipped with a block already under the hood of the SUV Sorento , the 4-cylinder 2.2 liter CRDi 200 hp (at 3800 rev / min) and 440 Nm (at 1750 rev / min).
For the record, the almost two tons SUV forgets the 0 to 100 km / h in 9.6 s and promises 203 km / h when it is so animated.
This Stinger diesel will then offer a real alternative to those it targets in the European markets even if to make a place on the segment D will not be a sinecure as the established positions give no latitude to the Korean car.
