Buy it for 50, drive it for a week, trade it in, it will be worth 30.. Had one Kia ,that will never happen again !Just my point of view. Sorry.

It is not 50k vs. 30k, the STICKER price difference between the two is barely a couple thousand dollars when similarly equipped unless you are looking at the bone stock versions of the sport vs the GT. That is about 5k and again STICKER price... For that difference you are getting a bigger engine and better transmission among other things.

People are still being badge snobs like ford has so much better of a reputation or something. Kia has been steadily moving away from their budget commuter image for years now.

The official Fusion sport Vs a KIA stinger thread..

Okay slightly off/on topic

My wife wanted and got a 2017 Kia Sorento this year. SX V6 with technology package. I never thought I would utter the words “I bought a Kia”. I am completely surprised by the quality and generally how nice of a SUV it is. My only complaint I have is wind noise at highway speed, wife says she doesn’t hear it. So that’s a minor win but still kills me when I drive it, which is a lot.

With that said it opened my eyes to Kia and I will go drive a Stinger but no matter how good it is there is no way I’m loosing my butt and trading a 4 month old car. I will figure out if I’d race one.

Livin the dream!

Agreed.

The optima was actually better than the fusion for a few years, and really other than the Sport, its equates out to be about equal.
The rio is basically the fiesta.
Forte is the focus.
Cadenza would be the taurus
K900 would be the Lincoln MKZ.
Sportage is Escape.
Sorento is Explorer.

The list continues... Kia is basically the same **** thing as Ford to be honest. Even the looks of them are very similar as well. But with Kia you get a better warranty.

I almost got an Optima SXTurbo a few years ago when they were at 285 HP and you couldn't even get close with a Fusion, and I will certainly look at the Stinger GT when the day comes I decide to get a different every day driver.

You can build a v6 gt on the website for 41k sticker. On paper the kia runs 0 to 60 in 4.8. I don't think my sport can do that now. My guess is I would have to invest the entire price difference (which isn't as much as you thought) just to make it close.

IMO for a car to car comparison, I think you better off comparing the Stinger to the Lincoln MKZ. Both are round the 41k sticker with the V6 twin turbo and AWD.



Fusion Sport is close to 10k cheaper than both of those cars (when equipped with the twin turbo and AWD). My feeling/guess is the MKZ and the Stinger are both a bit more "carefully" put together.


FWIW, I do have a couple of creeks here and there on my sport, a couple of quirks... but I purchased my Sport with this expectation. My friend has a 2011 Mustang and he gave me the scoop on what to expect with Fords in general.



This being said, given what I could afford financially, I would buy the Sport again in a heartbeat if I had to do it over again.


If I was a little more wealthy and had to make a car purchase, I'd probably go for the Stinger or the MKZ.

Let me know when you can get an AWD TTV6 from Kia for $25-26K.
I'm going to guess never............

But that also doesn't say much for our vehicles... if their new value is 9K under MSRP, what is their used value? Anyone planning to trade theirs in at any point is gonna be hurt unless they have it paid off completely, or darn close to. My car, one year in, has 36,000 miles. I still owe like $21,000 on it. Obviously I don't plan to trade it in right now, but if I were, it would suck for me.
