The Audi A7 was a pathbreaking car upon its launch – a blend of four door coupe and a sporty ride. With the 2017 model year, both the A7 and its mainstream performance version – the S7 – entered second generation. We’ll leave an RS7 comparison for later – when Kia brings us a special high performance version of the Stinger.
While the A7 is the more affordable option, the S7 is the more powerful one. Both cars are very attractive, luxurious and carry the badge of a German company. However in 2018, the established sheriffs of the town are challenged by a relatively new gunslinging foreign outlaw – the Kia Stinger!
The new Kia Stinger sees a paradigm shift from old Kia sedans to a modern and supremely powerful luxury vehicle. This one is not for the faint hearted as can be seen from the performance figures of the Stinger – especially if you consider the GT trim. Striking a perfect balance between power and refinement, Kia’s engineers have done an exceptional job in taking on the likes of Audi. The result of this is a finely tuned automobile with a perfect blend of comfort, aggressive styling and impressive power.
