The popular sedan will be discontinued after the current model year, 

but the 2023 Kia Stinger ranks well in our list of premium compact cars. 

There are now rumors that the Stinger may not really be going extinct after all. 

The decision is said to be motivated by a lack of sales.

With its tiger-nose, thin headlamps, and slanted rear tailgate, the Stinger has an athletic appearance while yet being somewhat practical thanks to its four-door construction. 

The athletic vibe inside is maintained by the center console, which houses the gear stick or gear selector, and the bolstered front seats.
