Holy FK Autoexpress actually instrument TESTED and verified something!😯
When we tested the Stinger GT S against the Audi S5 Sportback, it was slightly slower than the Audi from 0-60mph, taking 4.9 seconds to the S5’s 4.7 seconds, but the Kia was faster once it was rolling. The Audi’s four-wheel-drive system means it launches ferociously, but the Kia was a tenth quicker from 30-70mph through the gears, posting a time of 3.9 seconds.
The newcomer was also significantly quicker in-gear, as the Kia covered 30-50mph in just 2.2 seconds. This is where it gains another tenth of a second over the Audi, which took 2.3 seconds.
Once you’re up to speed the difference is even greater, because from 50-70mph the Stinger was faster in every gear. In fifth it took just 3.7 seconds to the S5’s 4.0 seconds, and in sixth it set a time of 4.6 seconds. The Audi did it in 5.1 seconds."
It's VERY rare, atleast in my experience because I'm definitely more an Autocar man for them to test anything and publish figures. Only Tip Gear and sometimes EVO Magazine do it! Now I'll definitely be triple checking for others! ;)
