The Kia Stinger was intended to compete with the BMW 4 Series 

as a sporty top model when it was introduced in 2017. And the fundamental components sounded good. 

Along with rear-wheel drive and lots of power beneath the big hood, the grand tourer also 

had a chassis that had been improved by Albert Biermann, a former BMW M development manager. 

Kia is reportedly on its way out after several reports. 

Kia released a last Tribute Edition to honor the model's significant contribution to the history of the company and to send the model goodbye with some fanfare.
