2018 Kia Stinger vs 2018 Audi S3

2018 Kia Stinger vs 2018 Audi S3

Kia has always been a car company that has put customers first. Their catalog of cars has made them a popular and reliable brand that offers immense value at incredibly affordable prices. The only downside to this approach is that Kia has been absent from the field of high-class, performance-based vehicles. By that, we're referring to luxury vehicles and sports cars. However, Kia has now said no more, and are swinging for the fences, having released their first-ever luxury sports sedan: the 2018 Kia Stinger.

Although technically still a sedan due to its build, the 2018 Kia Stinger still holds all the marks of a luxury sports car, from technology to power. However, for many interested drivers invested in the automotive market, this might be hard to believe. Due to Kia's track record of consumer-friendly vehicles that put value over powerful specs, a powerful sports car in their catalog seems unlikely. Therefore, we're here to prove the 2018 Kia Stinger's worth. How do we do that? We'll demonstrate the excellent design of the 2018 Stinger by pitting it against a well-known luxury brand. It's the 2018 Kia Stinger vs the 2018 Audi S3.
