Kia has come up with an all-new vehicle, the Stinger, for its 2018 lineup, according to the Jones Junction website.

The Stinger has rear-wheel drive, looks completely different than other Kias and has great horsepower options.

The 2018 Kia Stinger won Best in Show and Eyes on Design awards at the recent North American International Auto Show. Its exterior is inspired by the GT Concept, and Jones Junction's team finds it reminiscent of European luxury sports cars. The car also has LED taillights.

Leather interior is standard on the Stinger, with black, red, light gray and several other color options available. The Stinger also has rear 60/40 split folding seats.

Extra amenities are offered on some trim packages, such as a heated steering wheel.

Technology is also a key feature on this car. It has Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, voice recognition and an 8-inch touchscreen display. The car also has numerous high-tech safety features such as smart cruise control, lane assist, blind-spot detection and a driver-attention alert, among many others.

The 2018 Kia Stinger also has powertrain options such as a 2.0-liter turbocharged, 4-cylinder engine with 255 horsepower, or a 3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with 365 horsepower. The 8-speed automatic transmission has five driving modes.

The Stinger starts at $31,900, and Jones Junction says it is well worth it for the feel of a luxury sports car.
