Stinger is the First Kia to Place Amongst the Final Three for Prestigious Award 

LOS ANGELES, November 30, 2017 – Designed in Frankfurt and developed on the Nürburgring, the all-new Kia Stinger fastback sport sedan was named as one of three finalists for the 2018 North American Car of the Year.

“Today marks an important milestone in Kia’s history and the jurors’ acknowledgement of Stinger’s world-class style, performance and value honors the global research, development and planning teams that ushered the Stinger from concept car dream to reality,” said Justin Sohn, president and CEO, Kia Motors America.

Initiated in 1994, the North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle awards are judged by 60 automotive journalists from the United States and Canada. Jurors determined the finalists after evaluating dozens of new vehicles based on segment leadership, innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value for the dollar.
