The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.6
6.0

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2019 Kia Stinger sets its sights on sleek style and well-tuned ride and handling, and scores a few direct hits against long-standing best-sellers. The 2019 Lexus IS has sports sedan intentions, but it needs more underhood muscle and fresher styling to keep pace with German rivals.
