Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The driving position in the Kia Stinger is largely spot on. Adjustments are numerous, thanks to the standard electrically operated steering column and driver’s seat, which has lumbar adjustment, and you feel cocooned because of the high window line and centre console. It feels better than the incongruously high driving position in the Audi S5.

Your view out past the slim windscreen pillars and over the long bonnet helps it feel sporty, too, but the rear window is quite small and the view over your rear shoulder is restricted when you're reversing. Thankfully, front and rear parking sensors plus a 360-degree camera are on hand to help while parking. You also get automatic wipers and automatic LED lights.

Then there’s the floating 10.3in infotainment screen in the middle of the dashboard. It’s a touchscreen, and is more distracting to use on the move than the rotary dial interface used by BMW, but the graphics are sharp and the screen switches promptly between menus. It’s also well-equipped, with sat-nav wireless phone-charging, a DAB radio, smartphone mirroring and various online services included. 

A Harman Kardon premium sound system is standard, with an external amplifier and a centre speaker for surround sound listening, delivering impressive clarity and punch.
