2020 Kia Stinger GTS gets AWD with Drift Mode

The all-wheel drive Kia Stinger has more traction than its rear-wheel drive counterpart, but that comes at a cost. Drifting, to be specific. A new iteration of the all-wheel drive system offered in left-hand drive markets, dubbed Dynamic AWD, aims to close that gap. It defaults to a fairly conservative power split in Comfort, sending 60% of the engine's torque to the rear axle, but flipping into Sport ups that to 80%...

Hyundai: Same-same family design is "boring"

It isn't uncommon to see manufacturers designing a similar-looking range of cars across model lines, but it's a move Hyundai's head of design is strongly against.
