The Honda Accord isn’t the only vehicle receiving a ton of praise and accolades these days. While it failed to earn the title of 2018 North American Car of the Year, the all-new Kia Stinger recently won the 2018 Best of the Best Award presented by the Canadian Automotive Jury, a group of prominent automotive journalists pledged to the highest standards of vehicle evaluation. In fact, the Stinger beat the aforementioned Accord as well as the Toyota Camry—duplicating the feat it pulled off at the 2018 Auto123.com Awards ceremony.
"When Kia landed in Canada 18 years ago, it did so with a pretty thin lineup but that has changed big time, and the new Stinger is the epitome of just how much things have changed for the better. The five-door has stunning looks, a choice of two turbocharged engines and the driving dynamics demanded of European super-sedan. In short, the 2018 Stinger sets a very high standard for the segment and for those above it price point. It’s a car for the ages!"
- Graeme Fletcher, journalist and member of the Canadian Automotive Jury
In the view of the Canadian Automotive Jury, the Kia Stinger has no complex when faced with rivals like the Audi A5 Sportback or the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe.
Additionally, the Stinger won a global iF Design Award, a prestigious honour that has been given annually since 1953 by the International Forum Design and is now renowned around the world as a seal of quality for excellence in the field of design.
