What used Kia Stinger saloon will I get for my budget?
Around £18,000 should get you into the driver’s seat of a 2018 2.2-litre diesel-engined Stinger, this for a low mileage car with a full history bought from a franchised dealer. Up your spending to between £20,000 and £25,000 and you’ll have your choice of Stingers from 2018 and 2019. You can choose a diesel, a 2.0-litre petrol or even a 3.3 V6 GT S for around £26,000. These will have a low mileage and a full history and be bought from a franchised Kia dealer.
How much does it cost to run a Kia Stinger saloon?
On paper, the 2.2-litre diesel is the most economical, with an official average fuel consumption figure of 48.7mpg under the older NEDC tests or 40.9mpg under the newer, more realistic WLTP tests, and corresponding CO2 emissions of 154g/km. The 2.0-litre petrol returns 35.8mpg (31.7mpg WLTP) and 181g/km, by the same judging, while the GT S gives an official average of 28.5mpg NEDC or 27.7mpg under the WLTP and CO2 emissions of 225g/km.
All Stingers will be registered after the tax changes of 1 April 2017 came into force, meaning that they'll be charged annual road tax at the current flat rate, which stands at £150 a year. None of them incurs the additional fee applied to cars that cost over £40,000 when new, because even a GT S model with optional metallic paint is just under this threshold when you take off the first year's road tax and initial registration fee.

Insurance costs are reasonable, with groups ranging from 34 to 41 for the GT S. Servicing is required every six months or 6000 miles for petrol models, while diesels can go for 10,000 miles or one year. It’s worth looking to see if the previous owner has taken out Kia’s Care-3 or Care-5 servicing package, because this covers the first three or five years of servicing for a fixed price.
All Kia cars come with a class-leading fully transferable seven-year warranty from new. Used Kias under 20 months old bought under the firm's approved used scheme benefit from a policy that backs the warranty up to a full seven years.
