Australian pricing will start at AUD$48,990 for the S, AUD$55,990 for the mid-spec Si and on to AUD$59,990 for the fully-loaded GT. Driven understands the New Zealand Stinger range will include three models with a higher specification level than the Australian market.
Kia Motors Australia Chief Operating Officer, Damien Meredith said the decision to announce pricing early was to provide confidence of for the 'substantial number of buyers' who have put down deposits four the highly anticipated GT car.
“Almost all of the confirmed orders are for the 3.3-litre, so it makes sense to provide those customers with as much clarity as we can while they wait to take possession of their new cars,” said Meredith
