    Never thought I would ever buy a KIA but the Stinger was too good of a car to pass up.

    I think its a little tooo glitzy. but the general design is good. if i had ro choose today between the two, i'd choose the stinger, just for looks -- but without the fake hood intakes.

    No but have driven a few. Randy Pobst tracked it around Willow Springs on Motortrend and noted it's faults (somewhat easily fixable for Kia from the factory) and in the times it was slower than a Focus ST and on par with cars from 2013.
