Looking for a high performance car to replace the existing Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore V-8 cruisers that have ended production, the Kia Stinger fits the criteria perfectly. With a 3.3l engine it has passed the stringent braking and cooling test before it could be considered for service. Reports coming from Australian media in June 2017 stated that most of the country’s police departments were looking to the Kia Stinger to their fleets.

Speaking about the introduction of the All-New Kia Stinger to the Queensland Police Force, Kevin Hepworth, Kia Communications Manager commented "The brake package meets their requirement, the wiring meets their requirement, it can be upgraded simply without drama". He went on to add "Performance figures are what they want, [along with] enough boot, control—and now they have to assess if they can steer it or not."

Images of the Kia Stinger liveried up for the Queensland Police Force show that it is not far from hitting the Australian roads.  The top speed of 167mph and a 0-60mph time of 4.6 seconds mean that the Stinger will be a match for the country’s criminals.
