Interior and Exterior Design
Design Stinger was developed under the direction of Peter Schreier, he worked in Audi and Volkswagen, maybe for this reason some experts say about the similarity of the model with the Audi A7 Sportblack . And as it rarely happens, the serial model is a little like the conceptual KIA GT4 Stinger, introduced in 2014. Now the long hood rises above the original, and stamps all the original radiator grill. At the car we see an aerodynamic aperture. The headlights have drop-shaped form and consist of LED-modules.
The feed of the car has a slight elevation, which is why the body of the car is formed. Tail lights were minimized as much as possible, they were immediately placed under a small spoiler. In the lower part there are 4 chrome tubes of the exhaust system. The Stinger salon is made of the best materials: carbon fiber, leather, plastic and metal. Due to increase in the distance between the axles, the dimensions of the cabin have also increased, so that the space of problems does not arise.
The manufacturer decided to leave the instrument panel analog, but highly informative. In the architectural plan, the console is built in the image of many modern automakers. The tunnel on which the checkpoint is located in front has an elevation, and all control buttons are arranged logically and intuitively clear, which gives easy control of the car. Stinger’s owners will receive: an advanced multimedia system with a widescreen 7-inch screen; several options for audio preparation, allowing installation of even 15 home-made speakers electronic-adjustable heated and ventilated chair; two-zone climate control automatic parking assist and drive systems with multiple driving modes.
