Kia has revealed the prices and specifications of its all new Stinger GT, which is available to order now.

The Korean manufacturer's flagship grand tourer - its only rear-wheel-drive model - will cost from £31,995 and be available in showrooms from January 1, 2018.

There will be five versions, based on three trim grades (GT-Line, GT-Line S and GT-S) and three turbocharged engines.

The 2.2-litre CRDi diesel produces 200PS and can achieve up to 50.4mpg.

There is also a 245PS 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 with 366PS.

All models drive the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox with five different shift and throttle programmes and the option of full manual control using the steering wheel-mounted paddles.  

Standard specification is generous: all models have an 8.0-inch touchscreen navigation system which is linked to Kia Connected Services with TomTom, giving traffic, weather and local search information, and even warning of speed cameras.

Stinger can be connected to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay via a smartphone, has Bluetooth with voice recognition and music streaming and is equipped with a reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors and a head-up display.

GT-Line has a nine-speaker sound system with front under-seat subwoofer, while the other two trim grades feature a 15-speaker Harman Kardon premium sound system with subwoofer.

Standard safety features to assist drivers on long journeys include Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Driver Attention Warning and Speed Limit Information. GT-Line S and GT-S also have Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and GT-S is fitted with Brembo brakes. A limited slip differential is standard, as is an Active Bonnet to protect the heads of pedestrians in the event of a collision.

Leather upholstery in either black, grey or red is available on all trims, and in GT-S there is Nappa leather. Eight-way power-adjustable memory front seats are fitted to all models, along with a two-way power-adjustable cushion extender. Two-way side bolster adjustment is added in GT-S. The front seats are heated, along with the outer rear seats in GT-Line S and GT-S, which also have ventilated front seats. Adding to comfort and convenience is electrically operated tilt and telescopic steering wheel adjustment as standard across all grades.

There is a D-shaped leather-trimmed steering wheel and a leather and chrome gearshifter, leather on the dashboard and door armrests, an aluminium finish centre console, which also has a wireless phone charger, alloy pedals, stainless steel door scuff plates, suede headlining, dual automatic air conditioning, Smart Cruise Control with a speed limiter and a Smart Entry System with engine start/stop button. A powered tailgate is fitted to GT-Line S and GT-S.

GT-S has electronic suspension which can be set to one of five modes and variable gear ratio steering.

Stinger's standard paint finish is Sunset Yellow, while Pearl White, Midnight Black, Ceramic Silver, HiChroma Red and Panthera Metal are chargeable options.
