Kia aligns itself with an aim to supply to the masses:
The strategy of Kia for India would be quite different to what it has tried to pull-off in several other markets particularly in North America and Europe. With products such as the Proceed concept and the Stinger, that seems to be showcased at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2017, Kia is found to be steadily moving towards generating a premium range of vehicles. But, in India, it is Hyundai, which has transformed itself from merely a mainstream automaker to one who tends to enlist more premium badges such as Jeep, Skoda, and Volkswagen. On the other hand, Kia would be brought into line for catering to the masses. Therefore, it will just invest in those models that could be made with the significant amount of localization and are simultaneously capable to be modified in order to fit into the small car segment.
Even though we would like to describe you more information about almost all the eighteen cars, which are expected to be shown up, let us make it crisp and briefly explain about the Kia Stinger, which perfectly portrays the sporty nature of Kia’s product. Being served as a halo model in India, the Stinger sports sedan will sit at the top of the product pyramid of Kia. The Stinger gets a very coupe-ish look from a low-slung 4-door sedan together with a short rear end and a long swooping bonnet.
Three different engine options for Kia Stinger:
There are nearly three engine options to select from Stinger and they are 0.2 L petrol, 2.2 L diesel and a 3.3 L v6 Petrol. Almost all the three engines will be escorted by a turbocharger so as to generate 370PS/510Nm, 200PS/440Nm, and 247Ps/353Nm respectively. The V6 Petrol engine will have the capacity to end up 0-100 kmph sprint within 4.7 seconds whereas the smaller petrol and diesel engines could accomplish that in 5.8 and 7.3 seconds. In particular, the stinger will be longer with two additional doors and taller rides as compared to the Mustang. The Stinger will perfectly show that how the automaker is making itself to employ other well-equipped premium marques such as Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz as well.
