Staff at the group’s Concorde Way dealership in Stockton and the Parsons Road site in Washington, have taken delivery of the hotly anticipated new and powerful fastback sport Gran Turismo. 

Priced from £31,995, the latest model closely follows the design and engineering blueprint laid down by the 2011 Kia GT Concept, and is the highest-performance production vehicle in the company’s history.

Steven Flack, franchise manager at Jennings Kia in Stockton, said; “We’re delighted to be able to offer the Stinger at our Stockton and Washington branches. 

“This is a real delight from Kia and we’re looking forward to welcoming customers to the dealerships to take a test drive of the latest model, which features a head-turning aesthetic, as well as offering the latest infotainment systems and driver technologies.”

Customers can choose from five versions, based on three trim grades (GT-Line, GT-Line S and GT-S) and three turbocharged engines.  Heading the range is the GT-S, powered by a twin turbo 365bhp 3.3-litre V6 T-GDi engine capable of taking the car from standstill to 60mph in only 4.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 168mph where allowed.  

All models have an 8.0-inch touchscreen navigation system with European mapping and a Traffic Messaging Channel to guide owners to wherever they feel like roaming.  The screen is linked to Kia Connected Services with TomTom, giving traffic, weather and local search information, and even warning of speed cameras.

The Stinger can also be connected to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay via a smartphone, has Bluetooth with voice recognition and music streaming.  It is also equipped with a reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors and a 7.0-inch Thin Film Transistor supervision cluster.

Leather upholstery in either black, grey or red is available on all trims, and in GT-S customers can take advantage of Nappa leather.  Eight-way power-adjustable memory front seats are fitted to all models, along with a two-way power-adjustable cushion extender.  Two-way side bolster adjustment is added in GT-S.  The front seats are heated, along with the outer rear seats in GT-Line S and GT-S, which also have ventilated front seats.

The Kia Stinger’s standard paint finish is Sunset Yellow, with Pearl White, Midnight Black, Ceramic Silver, HiChroma Red and Panthera Metal as chargeable options.

Customers who purchase a car from the extensive new Kia model line-up at Jennings Kia, can also take advantage of a range of aftersales facilities, including service, MOT and genuine Kia parts.
