Why The 2022 Kia Stinger Is A Great Sports Sedan Lease Option For You

Kia’s big sports sedan is back for the 2022 model year, and this time, it aims to challenge some of the premium sports sedans from Europe, and it nearly succeeds at it. Right from its debut back in 2018, the Kia Stinger has been gunning to redefine what Kia stands for.

And for its 2022 model year, the 2022 Stinger gets some styling updates. Under the hood, it drops its previous powertrain for a more powerful 2.5-liter turbo-four, while its optional powertrain gets a minor power boost. Outside, it gets updated headlights and taillights, larger exhaust tips, and new wheels. And on the inside, the 2022 Stinger receives several material upgrades, new tech features, and a larger infotainment display.

For enthusiasts on a tight budget, the 2022 Kia Stinger lease deal is the best bet as this sports sedan offers the same upscale looks and feels, as well as more rewarding driving manners than most of its European rivals.

Engine And Performance

One of the major highlights of the 2022 Kia Stinger lies under its hood. While Kia will continue to offer two engines in the Stinger, however, it has moved to address the shortcomings in its base powertrain, as it drops the standard 255-hp turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder for a new 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates 300 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque — an increase of 45 hp and 51 lb-ft over the outgoing model. If this doesn’t provide enough power to thrill you, its optional V6, now tuned to deliver 368 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque (3 hp more than the outgoing year’s model), will surely do. The V6 engine now gets a new variable exhaust system, which helps boost its power. Both the turbo-four and the V6 pair to an eight-speed automatic. 

Fuel Economy

The most efficient engine is the rear-drive, four-cylinder engine with an EPA estimated 22 mpg city and 32 highway. These numbers are also an improvement to the 2021 Stinger’s 22/29 mpg. However, the numbers drop to 21/29 with the AWD, giving the same ratings as last year’s 2.0L AWD variant. We expect the 2022 improved 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 to deliver 18/25 mpg with RWD and 17/24 with AWD.


Inside, the 2022 Stinger boasts a well-built and attractive interior. However, it’s still far from beating the top European offerings in its class. However, this new restyled sports sedan affords a roomy interior and large cargo hold. It also receives upgraded materials throughout, as its 8.0-inch touchscreen makes way for a new 10.3-inch touchscreen. Other desirable feature upgrades include Kia’s latest UVO infotainment system that features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 360-degree camera system, adjustable ambient lighting, and Blind Spot View Monitor.


So many exciting driver assists features, including adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist, are available.

The 2022 Kia Stinger is one of the most fun-to-drive sports sedans out there. It is sporty, powerful, and more budget-friendly than some close rivals. To lease the 2022 Stinger, call VIP Auto, 1204 Hylan Blvd, Staten Island, NY 10305

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
