Kia Stinger Earns First-Ever J.D. Power Award for Highest Rated New Vehicle

Kia Motors' commitment to quality, safety, and practicality is a part of its legacy. Today, this legacy is being celebrated around the world. The Korean automobile giant’s latest model, the 2019 Stinger, is now the recipient of the prestigious J.D. Power Engineering Award for Highest Rated New Vehicle. 

Who is the J.D. Power Award for? 
The J.D. Power Engineering Award for Highest Rated New Vehicle is a venture by the USA-headquartered global marketing information service provider J.D. Power to recognize world-class automobile brands for their product design & construction. 

For a car to receive the awarded, they must attain high scores in two tests–the Initial Quality Study (IQS) and the J.D. Power Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL). They collect customer feedback from around the world both at the time of purchase and three years after purchase. They add up the scores, compared and the highest-rated brand wins. 

How the 2019 Kia Stinger Became Eligible for the Award 
The 2019 Kia Stinger is a product of years of research and focuses on customer satisfaction. The car comes with two engine options–the 2-liter 4-cylinder twin-scroll turbo engine that generates 255 horsepower & 260 lb-ft, and the 3.3-liter V6 engine that runs on 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft. 

The car’s acceleration is amazing, and it can go from 0 to 60 MPH in just under 4.7 seconds!

The 2019 Kia Stinger is also high on technology. It comes with advanced entertainment and safety features and sensors, which make driving a pleasure. The voice control feature makes the car responsive and the Bluetooth-enabled infotainment system adds additional value. 

The Stinger is also child-safe, with many child seat safety accessories that include the LATCH and height-adjustable seat tethers. The Advanced High-Strength Steel high-integrity, the body hot-stamped panels, and Kia’s own patented manufacturing technologies make the car reliable in all collision settings. This makes this sports sedan particularly useful for families with young ones.
