Stinger featured on S2Ep3 of The Grand Tour.
I watched it to see what they were going to say about it but there was not much of a review unfortunately. May seemed to like it but that was a pretty dumb "race" they did with it.

I did the same, it would have been nice to have them actually give some more thoughts on it other than drive it for three minutes of the show and say "its surprisingly not as bad as you would think a performance Kia would be."

Other than posting real figures, I think it was about as valuable as any other review any big car reviewers would do. It was obviously geared more toward entertainment, which is fine with me since I don't hold most other reviewers in very high regard. So many of them are sellouts that make no attempt whatsoever to give the whole story. At least with the Top Gear crew, they let you know, "Eh, it's a Kia. We don't really care. It's pretty hot for a Kia, though."

Well, better than our numbers stock, pretty much on par with our tuned numbers... as I think we all expected. And once it gets figured out more, I am sure their tuned numbers will be better than ours by a fairly decent amount. The Stinger is a very nice car, the only real downfall is its price.
