The 2020 Kia Stinger is largely in a class of its own.
Like-sized German rivals such as the Audi A6 cost around $60,000.
Instead, most shoppers are likely to consider the “default” BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, both of which send power to the rear (or all four) wheels and deliver excellent handling.
Those Germans are classier inside than the Kia, but not by as much as you might think.
The Jaguar XE is tight inside but has a supple ride and terrific handling.
Volvo’s S60 gets many things right, starting with its clean styling and its soothing interior design.
If you’re looking at the impressive Genesis G70, consider the Stinger—it’s not as plush, but the two share underpinnings and powertrains.
