    Some say he migrated when fuel hit 4 pounds per gallon and that he can make
    'special price' for you. All we know is, he's the Stig's Arab cousin; Al-Stig!

      Wait, how has a car never been called a Stinger? It's a fantastic name.

          There was an old Pontiac concept called Stinger but it's probably best forgotten.

          I generally like this, I certainly like the concept of newcomers to the RWD sports saloon market. The same is good, I see a bit of Jaguar in the shape and a lot of VXR8 in the front end. I'm wondering what the point of the rear clusters extending down the body is though, they don't seem to light up. Shame because they remind me of the old Maserati 3200 GT.

              Holy shit, that car looks AMAZING. Dat interior... Plus like the others have said, Stinger is a fantastic name. Will it get a North American release?

                Not bad looking on the outside, but the interior looks kinda underwhelming. Given the choice, I'd easily choose the Alfa Giulia over this (being completely unbiased of course )

                I'd say sidemarkers because 'Murica.

                    It looks pretty nice, but I keep seeing all sorts of other recent cars in it's design - A7, Giulia, Granturismo, GT86 and a touch of Panamera. It isn't really it's own.

                      This should be a big winner for Kia if interior quality is at least semi-decent and the price isn't too outlandish for the brand. Nobody who looks at a Kia cares if the design is derivative.

                      Worth it when he shows up.

                            It looks really nice, but I'm almost certain this design is going to date very quickly.

                                The problem with this car is the hideous "KIA" badge, it's such an eyesore. I'm going to get an Alfa Giulia instead though, when the time comes.

                                  According to the Autocar article, it'll be similar in price to a top-spec Sorento, so $46k/£49k.
