I actually like it, muffler tips are a bit big but I like the modern look of the refresh. Eager to hear the variable exhaust if they have done better than the Australian version.
I don’t understand why they felt the need to make those lower reflectors even bigger lol...nothing a little black vinyl won’t fix. I’m going to have to see the taillights in person to make my final judgment.
I think the front only changed the headlight led design...not sure what they’ve done with the hood scoops if anything.Nothing from that photo has me dying to run to my dealer to swap my 2018. I'm interested to see how the front looks though.
I had this thought way back when they speculated the 21s would have a full rear lightbar. I’m sure someone will make/market a conversion kit.I like the new taillights over the current ones. I just think the red bridge across the current lights is ugly because it isn't functional. The taillights of the my18-20 would look better if they weren't connected by the red plastic piece. If the rear blinker is sequential I'll like the new assembly even more.
Edit - just watched that Korean video and they are sequential. sweet. I wonder how hard it would be to retrofit the new tail lights in a my19 GT2
It's a modern look? Am I alone in thinking it looks old fashioned? Having the three colors separated and layered makes me think of older cars. Are there examples of other modern cars that use 3 different colors and separate them uniformly? Also the pixelated look of the yellow makes it look older to me too.I actually like it, muffler tips are a bit big but I like the modern look of the refresh.

How would increasing displacement improve gas mileage?While everyone is tossing around their opinions, I'd say the best reason for the 3.5 to replace the 3.3 in the Stinger is gas mileage. The CARB and EPA mandates are still pretty tough in spite of Trump having toned them down, and the 3.3 is a pretty thirsty engine. The 3.5 will help get them closer to compliance in the coming years.
And with respect to having lots of 3.3's 'sitting around in crates', Hyundai/Kia know how to plan ahead, and the 3.5 didn't just fall out of the sky. They've known what they were going to do for quite awhile ... we're the ones who don't know.
