Kia GT Concept Vs. Kia Stinger

One of the most-reputed concept cars at Kia is the Kia GT Concept. Let’s look at how this vehicle fares against one of the people’s favorite – the Kia Stinger GT.

Debut year
The Kia GT Concept was released in the market in 2011. The Kia Stinger GT models were introduced in the year 2017 and there have also been 2018 & 2019 models.

The Kia GT Concept is a “concept car” and isn't commercially available. However, the Kia Stinger GT is a commercially-available production model car.

The Kia GT Concept has a 3.3-liter turbocharged engine that generates 395 hp. The Kia Stinger GT (2017) comes equipped with a 3.3-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine that generates 365 hp. The 2018 & 2019 models come with a second engine option of a 2.0-liter Theta II turbocharged 4-cylinder with 255 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Both the Kia GT Concept & the Kia Stinger GT are 8-speed automatic cars.

Most of the interiors on offer in both the concept car and the Stinger GT are the same. For example, both cars come with features like:

    o Adjustable power seats o State-of-the-art dashboard with interactive controls o ApplePlay & Android Auto connectivity o Bluetooth & Wifi o Leather seats (in premium trims) o LCD meter display o 12-volt power units
However, the Kia GT Concept also comes with reverse-hinged doors, which aren’t available in the Kia Stinger GT. But the Stinger does come with AWD & FWD, while the concept doesn’t have both options.

In terms of safety, the Kia GT Concept comes with the same safety features as the Kia Stinger GT. Common features which are available include:

    o ABS o Airbags & pretensioners o Blind-spot monitoring o Lane keep assist o Rear parking assist o Adaptive cruise control o Hill descent assist o LATCH child safety system o Emergency braking
However, the Kia Stinger GT received the IIHT Top Safety Pick Award as well, proving that the model has come much beyond the concept it was based on.
