I understand why you would think that but its not the case.I like a lot of what you are saying except this. 2 mph is not going to be a few tenths of a difference. Maybe a few hundredths, but not tenths. So the Kia's 0-60 time is probably like 5.18 instead of 5.2 or something like that.
Here is some real world data for two cars run through both instrumented tests:
Mk 7 GTI
- 0-60: 6.932
- 0-62: 7.242
- 0-60: 4.641
- 0-62: 4.852
According to Kia's Head of Corporate Communications, James Bell, a full-loaded Stinger will top off at around $45,000.This car looks AWESOME on the outside and what's under the hood sure sounds impressive, but I think the Fusion has a much better interior.
From what I read on other sites at lunchtime today it will probably be 50K+ when equipped with the big motor and AWD.
