I have been thinking a lot about this. Shooting brake styled Stinger GT with a V8. Mmmmmm
-Wireless Apple CarPlay
-Make so that waze/google maps/apple maps navigation show up on the HUD
-ambient lighting for rear
-Korean cup holder cover
Agreed add a second electric engine like the BMW i8.
Another thing my 2012 Focus does... when you unlock doors from inside car while it is running it will illuminate the puddle lights allowing your future passenger to see the ground nicely... why can't our Stinger do this too?
I have a long list:
UVO Link in USA, please!
Android Auto next turn display in HUD
Tach in HUD, with shift light
NO polarizing filter in HUD, or at least orient the filter on all displays in the car to work properly with polarized sunglasses
NO speed limiter (let it be power/drag or redline limited, not some arbitrary cutoff speed; some of us may want to do an open road race event like Big Bend)
Rear LSD (Limited Slip Differential) in AWD models
UVO Link in USA please!
Adjustable limited-slip center diff/transfer case (see: c.diff in WRX STI)
Proper boost gauge
Headlight leveler in US market (be the trailblazer here!)
Rear fog lights in US market (most won't know what it's for but I love that feature in Saabs and BMWs)
UVO Link in USA please!
Reclining seatbacks for back seats (see: Subaru Forester back seats; they recline!)
Stiffer swaybars as an option
Better utilization of the adaptive
3D gauges in US model please!
Widescreen infotainment display (so I can use AA's new widescreen UI)
UVO Link in USA please!
MUCH MOAR POWER! (Stinger GT-R? Americans want more power!)
Open airbox (I want to hear those turbines spool up!)
EVC exhaust in US models please!
Extend ambient lighting to under seats and back seat armrests!
Larger shift paddles!
Harder brake pads. We don't care about brake noise in our sportscars. We do hate pulsating glazed brakes that are prone to fade!
Drift mode for GT2!
FM+HD radio pause/"rewind" buffer (see: Subaru's head units)
Better speakers not just HK labels slapped on cheap drivers!
Flex fuel capable
Screen or mesh to keep stones out of the brake vents,
Functional hood vents (why not let the leverage airflow over the hood for scavenging to help improve under-hood cooling?)
CD player OR support for lossless media files
XPel Ultimate paint protection option
Insulate ductwork under center console (or at least under the phone charger)
Wireless android auto support
Quickcharge and/or PD USB ports
TWO USB ports up front
At least one USB port in the console storage compartment
Did I mention UVO Link in USA please?
I'll bet Kia would pay you NOT to buy a Stinger ..........................
Looking at your post history, well... your opinion isn't worth taking into consideration.
BTW clicking disagree on my post was the very definition of irony, considering:
Black Friday Sales?
..here's what I would say to you on that , I dont leave "X Disagree" ratings on peoples posts without stating why , you seem to use this rating pretty freely without supporting your position for why you give it ? .................... I call things the way I see them ................ .......lets all try to get along .OK
You seem to be the board troll.
I did support my X with an opinion, you've done a very good job of hi liting the issues of why the Stinger likely isnt the right car for you , and while I think your response post was going for a bit of humour , so was mine .............all good
How about brakes that don't pulse. I can embed them over and over and I only wear out brake pad and the pulsing comes back. I can't believe nobody else has brought this up. Also anti lock braking is useless in snow. I want to turn it off. My problems with the
suspension were fixed with an overnight software update Oct 2018. We have full connectivity in Canada. I recognized another software update in October 2019 that is far more subtle, but undeniable. Sport mode is perfect now in terms of transmission and
suspension. I'd still like a supersport mode that goes full stiff on
suspension and simultaneously turns off traction and stability functions. Oh yeah. An higher boost for more thrill and 415 HP.
Because pulsing brakes is not lack of a feature. it's a problem.
FAQ: Vibration under braking: warped rotors? NO! ?
My Mazda had a feature I loved. Upon exiting the car and closing the door, there was a beep. 20 seconds later it would beep again letting you know it auto locked the car. No button push required. Of course auto lock could be defeated in the settings, but very few folks would. How awesome is that? Get out, close door , hear beep and be in your way. I really miss that feature.
I would also like the "put your hand in the door handle and the door automatically unlocks". Some of the most garbage cars I've rented do that now. I assume it's part of the "build to a price point" thing, but still. I'd much rather have that than the stupid auto opening hatch.
THIS!! My 2008 CTS operates the same way, it's something I never thought would be any other way. you have an ambient sensor, use it to activate either the heat or AC depending on what the temp says.
I have that: I reach without thinking for the heated seat switch when my Butt Sensor signals to me that I want it.
Hahah, fair, but it's nicer to come to your car and to already have the seat toasty!
My Charger RT had that. If I used the remote start it would activate a comfort setting. When it was cold out the seat heater, rear defroster, and steering wheel heater would turn on. When it was hot out the seat ventilation fan would turn on and th AC would go to max setting for the fan. Once you opened the door, the AC would go back to what you had it set at before.. oh yeah...it also had heated and cooled cup holders you could activate.
All I wanted for Christmas was a better exhaust.... found it!

I think you might be right that sounds impressive. I can't think of anything that beats that sound.
Korea got it right! I’m glad that this is on its way to the US, finally. Hopefully, you guys get it by you!
