    This is the cockpit of the New Kia Niro launched recently in Korea.
    I hope that the refresh or new gen Stinger would come with full digital cockpit. 201903071116770114_5c807f5dce8f9.jpg

    Kia could have put that digital dash in the Stinger. But that isn't a retro feel for a GT that wants to evoke a 70s Maserati. I like the analog gauges myself. Having digital in the center is enough digital. I think it's a good combo.

    Larger infotainment screen with smaller bezels would do it for me.

    Fugly, redefined. I sure hope they don't put that into the Stinger!


    NO infortainment screen at all, with traditional climate controls, would do it for me. (Put the camera display into the dash)

    It's definitely the most modern. But man I can't imagine how much of a headache it is to keep smudge free.

    GT1 doesn't have that. But if it did that would be cool. Doesn't impact the "retro feel" of the dash analog gauges.

    I concur. I really like the analog gauges plus the functionality of the digital display in the centre. The Stinger is getting some bad press about the speedo and tach not being all digital, but I think that bad press is unwarranted. Auto journalists have to pick on something right?. Either there is too much digital or not enough. The Stinger strikes the right balance!

    I can't say I'm with you on liking the cluster/gauges, I feel like it's one of the weakest points of the interior. Especially when you have competitors like Audi with the virtual cockpit cluster, which is just incredible.

    The interior design of the Stinger dates back to 2015 (or older, considering it went on sale in SK in early-2017). If you compare it to a 2015 Audi interior it's comparable.

    When (if) the Stinger gets it's redesign in 2022-23 it will have an interior comparable to today's Audi/Mercedes. Of course by then it'll still be outdated, but you get the picture...
