The Stinger, which Kia introduced in 2018, is a large sedan with seating up to 5. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily bypass mud and snow. Kia offers a 5-year, 60,000-mile basic warranty, and a 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2022 Kia Stinger is above average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Kia Stinger has a score of 85, implying a 0.036% chance of driver death (3.2% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 Kia Stinger has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0355% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.0577%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0355% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.0577% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2022 Kia Stinger is 24% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2022 Kia Stinger is 30% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

While not the most impressive in its class, the Stinger is still a solid choice for those looking for a car that offers some level of protection on the road. One of the key safety features of the Stinger is its suite of advanced driver assistance systems. This includes Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, and Lane Keeping Assist. These features work together to help prevent accidents and keep drivers and passengers safe on the road.

Overall, the 2022 Kia Stinger offers a decent set of safety features, but it may not be the best choice for those who prioritize safety above all else. While the car does come with some standard safety features, such as the rearview camera and driver assistance systems, it does not offer some of the more advanced safety technologies found in other mid-size sedans.

And it is safer than many comparable models.
