2018 Kia Stinger: Traction control test

Last year when we compared the Kia Stinger to the V8 Aussie muscle car, the Holden Commodore SS-V Redline, Paul Maric said that you couldn't switch stability control off in the Stinger.

2018 Kia Stinger preview

See the full story here. Not since the Toyota 86 has there been a more anticipated car for the Australian market, than the all-new Kia Stinger. The Korean brand is set to deliver a rear-wheel drive, turbocharged, practical family sedan at a time when all others in the segment have waved the white flag - but is it a case of too little too late, or is Kia about to reinvigorate the segment? To find out, we flew all the way to the Green Hell, perhaps the most infamous race track in the world, better known as the Nurburgring...
