2020 Kia Stinger

Starting Price

The first thing all Greenville drivers consider before purchasing any sports sedan is its price. The Kia Stinger starts at a reasonable $34,085 MSRP, including destination, which is very fair considering the Kia is more capable than the Audi A5, which has an MSRP of $43,895.


The base-level Stinger will be driven by a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4, which is quick and generates 255 horsepower. For the Shelby, NC drivers in need of speed, they can opt for the larger twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 that will blow your mind with its 365 horsepower. The Audi A5 offers the same number of engine options only to deliver less power and at a high price. Their first option, which powers their base vehicle 248 horsepower, and their optional engine, which drives their top trims, can only manage 349 horsepower. Moreover, the Stinger's engines are quicker, managing the zero to 60 run in just 5.1 seconds, with the Audi A5 managing the same in 5.6 seconds.
