No car has been praised this year as much as the Kia Stinger. It’s won the 2018 Detroit Auto Show “Best Production Car of the Year”, MotorWeek’s 2018 “Best of the Year” and 2018 AutoGuide.com “Reader’s Choice Car of the Year Award/Car of the Year”. I was at the Detroit Auto Show and saw firsthand the overwhelming response, not only from the press, but other automakers as well.
Kia is now set to release the Limited Edition 2019 Stinger GT Atlantica.
2019 Stinger GT Atlantica
The Stinger sport sedan has ushered in a new era for Kia and has redefined driving enthusiasts’ opinions of the brand since going on sale in late last year. Continuing that excitement and arriving this summer, the limited-edition Stinger GT Atlantica celebrates the cross-Atlantic collaboration between the U.S. and the vehicle’s Germany-based development roots and introduces exclusive features not previously offered.
With only a 500-unit limited-production run, the Atlantica edition is guaranteed to sell out quickly. The Atlantica edition includes unique paint, wheels and Nappa leather interior. Exclusive numbered badging inside and out, along with a bevy of technology and luxury features, make this 2019 Stinger truly something special.
- Exclusive metallic blue paint, wheels and luxurious interior add to Stinger’s stunning appearance
- Unique badging make Kia’s Stinger GT Atlantica a one-of-a-kind vehicle
- New tech and luxury features previously not offered on the U.S. Stinger provide an added level of convenience
- The Stinger GT also features a range of modern car tech including a 360-degree backup camera system.
Based on the Stinger GT2 AWD, the Atlantica edition is immediately recognizable with its Deep Chroma Blue metallic exterior paint. The aggressive 19-inch alloy wheels come direct from the European Stinger and the large-font Stinger badge across the rear deck lid harkens from the Korean-spec vehicle. An exclusive Espresso Brown Nappa leather interior complements the exterior and a rich black suede-type headliner adds a premium touch to an already well-equipped cockpit. Unique features to the Stinger GT Atlantica include a Surround View Monitor, a wireless phone charger, and heated rear outboard seats. Three tasteful Stinger Atlantica badges, one on the front center console and two that flank both front fenders, round out this exclusive and limited package. Final pricing hasn’t been determined and will be available closer to the Atlantica edition’s on-sale date this summer.
“Out of the box, the Stinger is a tried-and-true sport sedan with much of its development taking place on Germany’s grueling Nürburgring race circuit. The Atlantica edition introduces more European flare while distinguishing itself with exclusive badging and features not previously offered by Kia in the U.S. market.” – Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning, Kia Motors America (KMA)
