Kia Stinger 3.3L twin-turbo V6 petrol range
Next up, the Stinger 330S and GT, which are both equipped with the 3.3L twin turbo V6 engine. On top of standard features, the 330S adds Brembo brakes and mechanical limited-slip differentials. The GT model adds a Nappa leather trim and ambient interior lighting on top of everything from the 330S and GT-Line.
The V6 engine is refined and performs especially well on the open road. It offers a satisfying growl, power immediately at your fingertips, and light steering that’s quick to manoeuvre.
