2018 Kia Stinger vs. BMW 5-Series: Performance

Although new to the luxury sport sedan segment, the 2018 Kia Stinger knows what it's doing. In fact, the 2018 Stinger GT2 blows the BMW 5-Series out of the water. Not only is the Kia Stinger more powerful than the BMW 5-Series with either of its two engine options, it is also quicker. BMW clocks the BMW 540i's 0-60 MPH acceleration at 4.9 seconds. In Car and Driver testing, the new Kia Stinger GT2 went from 0-60 MPH in just 4.4 seconds!

2018 Kia Stinger vs. BMW 5-Series: Interior

The new 2018 Kia Stinger is available in five different trim packages. There are seven models in the BMW 5-Series lineup.

But what's true of the Kia Stinger regardless of the trim package is that it's more comfortable and convenient than the BMW 5-Series, thanks to design aspects like more legroom and cargo space.
