Only you can determine what best fits your needs and desires. Both cars have different colors, different drivetrains, different option levels... What might work best for Joe in Arizona wouldn't be the same for Ken in Minnesota, for example.

What can help is listing the differences on a sheet of paper, and prioritizing each of those differences. Is color the most important, or AWD, or fewer miles, or a newer vehicle/more warranty, or better options? Start there and see if you can figure it out. Good luck!

Howdy and welcome. That was a good answer Dan. The drive back with the White would be more fun. :D

Good info. Additionally, I believe the 2018 has the older style badging (Kia emblem on trunk, smaller Stinger script). Small factor, but a factor nonetheless.

Many folks prefer the base GT cable shifter vs. the GT2 electronic shifter. But GT2 HUD, cooled seats, sunroof, electronic hatch and adaptive cruise control are nice features...

I personally (when buying used) try to always get the newer car if possible... you have the warranty longer... but that's just me... :p

Good luck! :thumbup:

12K miles vs 41K is over 3x difference in mileage. Sure you'll give up some features, but I think the lower mileage is better. Given its newer, resale value should be higher too down the road.

The AWD and the extra options were a big deal to me, but to some people it makes no difference.

Color wise though, I'd rather have the white as opposed to the black. As others have stated, the longer warranty is a big plus on these as well.
