2023 Kia Stinger Specs, Price, Features and Mileage (Brochure)

 

Fuel requirements

For the optimal engine performance, we recommend you use unleaded gasoline which has an octane rating of RON (Research
Octane Number) 95/AKI (Anti Knock Index) 91 or higher.
Using Unleaded gasoline with an octane rating lower than RON 95 could result in loss of engine power and increase in fuel consumption.
Your new vehicle is designed to obtain maximum performance with UNLEADED FUEL, as well as minimize exhaust emissions and spark plug fouling.
Never add any fuel system cleaning agents to the fuel tank other than what has been specified. (Consult an authorized Kia dealer for details.) Tighten the cap until it clicks one time, otherwise the Check Engine light will illuminate.

WARNING
Refueling

  • Do not “top off” after the nozzle automatically shuts off. Attempts to force more fuel into the tank can cause fuel overflow onto you and the ground causing a risk of fire.
  •  Always check that the fuel cap is installed securely to prevent fuel spillage, especially in the event of an accident.

Gasoline containing alcohol and methanol
Gasohol, a mixture of gasoline and ethanol (also known as grain alcohol), and gasoline or gasohol containing methanol (also known as wood alcohol) are being marketed along with or instead of leaded or unleaded gasoline.
Pursuant to EPA regulations, ethanol may be used in your vehicle.
Do not use gasohol containing more than 15% ethanol, and do not use gasoline or gasohol containing any methanol. Ethanol provides less energy than gasoline and it attracts water, and it is thus likely to reduce your fuel efficiency and could lower your MPG results .Methanol may cause drivability problems and damage to the fuel system, engine control system and emission control system.
Discontinue using gasohol of any kind if drivability problems occur. Vehicle damage or drivability problems may not be covered by the manufacturers warranty if they result from the use of:

  1.  Gasoline or gasohol containing methanol.
  2. Leaded fuel or leaded gasohol.
  3. Gasohol containing more than 15% ethanol.

“E85” fuel is an alternative fuel comprised of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline, and is manufactured exclusively for use in Flexible Fuel Vehicles. E85 is not compatible with your vehicle. Use of E85 may result in poor engine performance and damage to your vehicle’s engine and fuel system. Kia recommends that customers do not use fuel with an ethanol content exceeding 15%.

NOTICE
Your New Vehicle Limited Warranty does not cover damage to the fuel system or any performance problems caused by the use of 􀀃E85􀀄 fuel.

NOTICE
Never use any fuel containing methanol. Discontinue use of any methanol containing product which may inhibit proper drivability.

Other fuels
Using fuels that contain Silicone (Si), MMT (Manganese, Mn), Ferrocene (Fe), and Other metallic additives, may cause vehicle and engine dam-age or cause misfiring, poor acceleration, engine stalling, catalyst melting, clogging, abnormal corrosion, life cycle reduction, etc.
Also, the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) may illuminate.

NOTICE
Damage to the fuel system or performance problem caused by the use of these fuels may not be covered by your New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

Gasoline containing MMT
Some gasoline contains harmful manganese- based fuel additives Such as MMT(Methyl cyclopentadienyl l Manganese Tricarbonyl). Kia does not recommend the use of gasoline containing MMT. This type of fuel can reduce vehicle performance and affect your emission control system. The Malfunction Indicator Lamp on the cluster may come on.

Do not use methanol
Fuels containing methanol (wood alcohol) should not be used in your vehicle. This type of fuel can reduce vehicle performance and damage components of the fuel system, engine control system and emission control system.
Fuel Additives
Kia recommends that you use good quality gasolines treated with detergent additives such as TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline, which help prevent deposit formation in the engine. These gasolines will help the engine run cleaner and enhance performance of the Emission Con-trol System. For more information on TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline, please go to the website (www.top-tiergas.com)
For customers who do not use TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline regularly, and have problems starting or the engine does not run smoothly, additives that you can buy separately may be added to the gasoline.
If TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline is not available, one bottle of additive should be added to the fuel tank at every 8,000 miles (13,000 km) (for Smartstream G2.5 T-GDi), 6,000 miles (10,000 km) (for (Gasoline) 3.3 T-GDi) or every engine oil change is recommended. Additives are avail-able from your authorized Kia dealer along with information on how to use them. Do not mix other additives.

Operation in foreign countries
If you are going to drive your vehicle in another country, be sure to:

  • Observe all regulations regarding registration and insurance.
  • Determine that acceptable fuel is available.

Vehicle modifications

This vehicle should not be modified. Modification of your vehicle could affect its performance, safety or durability and may even violate governmental safety and emissions regulations.
In addition, damage or performance problems resulting from any modification may not be covered under warranty.

  • If you use unauthorized electronic devices, it may cause the vehicle to operate abnormally, wire dam-age, battery discharge and fire. For your safety, do not use unauthorized electronic devices.

Vehicle break-in process

No special break-in period is needed. By following a few simple precautions for the first 600 miles (1,000 km) you may add to the performance, economy and life of your vehicle.

  • Do not race the engine.
  • While driving, keep your engine speed (rpm, or revolutions per minute) between 2,000 rpm and 4,000 rpm.
  • Do not maintain a single speed for long periods of time, either fast or slow. Varying engine speed is needed to properly break-in the engine.
  •  Avoid hard stops, except in emergencies, to allow the brakes to
    seat properly.
  • Don’t tow a trailer during the first 1,200 miles (2,000 km) of operation.
  • Fuel economy and engine performance may vary depending on vehicle break-in process and be stabilize after 4,000 miles (6,000 km). New engines may consume more oil during the vehicle break-in period.

 Risk of burns when parking or stopping vehicle

Risk of burns when parking or stopping vehicle

  • Do not park or stop the vehicle near flammable items such as leaves, paper, oil, and tire. Such items placed near the exhaust system can become a fire hazard.
  • When an engine idles at a high  rpm with the rear side of the vehicle in close proximity of the wall, heat of the exhaust gas can cause discoloration or fire. Keep enough space between the rear part of the vehicle and the wall.
  •  Be sure not to touch the exhaust catalytic systems while engine is running or right after the engine is turned off. There is a risk of burns since the systems are extremely hot.

Kia Stinger 2022 All Wheel Drive (AWD) User Guide

2022 Kia Stinger All Wheel Drive (AWD) Guidelines

All-wheel drive (AWD)

Using All Wheel Drive (AWD)

The All Wheel Drive (AWD) System delivers engine power to front and rear wheels for maximum traction. AWD is useful when extra traction is required, such as when driving slippery, muddy, wet, or snow-covered roads.
If the system determines there is a need for four wheel drive, the engine’s driving power is distributed to all four wheels automatically.

WARNING
If the AWD warning light  stays on the instrument cluster, your vehicle may have a malfunction with the AWD system. When the AWD warning light illuminates, we recommend that the vehicle be checked by an authorized Kia dealer as soon as possible.

WARNING
To reduce the risk of SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH:

  • Do not drive in conditions that exceed the vehicle’s intended design such as challenging off-road conditions.
  • Avoid high speeds when cornering or turning.
  • Do not make quick steering wheel movements, such as sharp lane changes or fast, sharp turns.
  • The risk of a rollover is greatly increased if you lose control of your vehicle at highway speeds.
  • Loss of control often occurs if two or more wheels drop off the road-way and the driver over steers to reenter the roadway.
  • In the event your vehicle leaves the roadway, do not steer sharply. Instead, slow down before pulling back into the travel lanes.

NOTICE

  • Do not drive in water if the level is higher than the bottom of the vehicle.
  • Check your brake condition once you are out of mud or water. Depress the brake pedal several times as you move slowly until you feel normal braking return.
  • Shorten your scheduled maintenance interval if you drive in off-road conditions such as sand, mud or water (Refer to “Maintenance under severe usage conditions – Turbo Models (For Smart stream G2.5 FR T-Gide)” on page 7-14.).
  • Make sure that AWD vehicle is towed by a flatbed tow truck.

For safe AWD operation
Before driving

  • Make sure all passengers are wearing seat belts.
  • Sit upright and closer to the steering wheel than usual. Adjust the steering wheel to a position comfortable for you to drive.

Driving on snow-covered or icy roads

  • Start off slowly by applying the accelerator pedal gently.
  • Use snow tires or tire chains.
  • Keep sufficient distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
  • Use engine braking during deceleration.
  • Avoid speeding, rapid acceleration, sudden brake applications, and sharp turns to prevent skids.

Driving in sand or mud

  • Maintain slow and constant speed.
  • Use tire chains driving in mud if necessary.
  • Keep sufficient distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
  • Reduce vehicle speed and always check the road condition.
  • Avoid speeding, rapid acceleration, sudden brake applications, and sharp turns to prevent getting stuck.

NOTICE
When the vehicle is stuck in snow, sand or mud, place a non-slip material under the drive wheels to pro-vide traction OR slowly spin the wheels in forward and reverse directions which causes a rocking motion that may free the vehicle. Refer to “Rocking the vehicle” on page 5-163. However, avoid running the engine continuously at high rpm, which could damage the AWD system.

Kia Stinger 2022 Brake System User Guide

2022 Kia Stinger Brake System Instructions

Brake system

Power brakes

Your vehicle has power-assisted brakes that adjust automatically through normal usage.
In the event that the power-assisted brakes lose power because of a stalled engine or some other reason, you can still stop your vehicle by applying greater force to the brake pedal than you normally would. The stopping distance, however, will be longer.
When the engine is not running, the reserve brake power is partially depleted each time the brake pedal is applied. Do not pump the brake pedal when the power assist has been interrupted.
Pump the brake pedal only when necessary to maintain steering control on slippery surfaces.

CAUTION
Brake Pedal
Do not drive with your foot resting on the brake pedal. This will create abnormally high brake temperatures which can cause excessive brake lining and pad wear.

WARNING
Steep hill braking
Avoid continuous application of the brakes when descending a long or steep hill by shifting to a lower gear. Continuous brake application will cause the brakes to overheat and could result in a temporary loss of braking performance.
Wet brakes may impair the vehicle􀀃s ability to safely slow down; the vehicle may also pull to one side when the brakes are applied. Apply-ing the brakes lightly will indicate whether they have been affected in this way. Always test your brakes in this fashion after driving through deep water. To dry the brakes, apply them lightly while maintaining a safe forward speed until brake performance returns to normal.
In the event of brake failure
If the service brakes fail to operate while the vehicle is in motion, you can make an emergency stop with the parking brake. The stopping distance, however, will be much greater than normal.

WARNING
Parking brake
Avoid applying the parking brake to stop the vehicle while it is moving except in an emergency situation. Applying the parking brake while the vehicle is moving at normal speeds can cause a sudden loss of control of the vehicle. If you must use the parking brake to stop the vehicle, use great caution in applying the brake.

Disc brakes wear indicator
When your brake pads are worn and new pads are required, you will hear a high-pitched warning sound from your front brakes or rear brakes. You may hear this sound come and go or it may occur whenever you depress the brake pedal.
Please remember that some driving conditions or climates may cause a brake squeal when you first apply (or lightly apply) the brakes. This is normal and does not indicate a problem with your brakes.
Always replace the front or rear brake pads as pairs.

CAUTION
Replace brake pads
Do not continue to drive with worn brake pads. Continuing to drive with worn brake pads can damage the braking system and result in costly brake repairs.

WARNING
Brake wear
Do not ignore high-pitched wear sounds from your brakes. If you ignore this audible warning, you will eventually lose braking performance, which could lead to a serious accident.

Brembo Brake (if equipped)
It is normal for vehicles equipped with high-performance brakes (Large-diameter Brembo brakes for enhanced braking performance) to generate braking noises.
Also, Circular patterns caused by disc surface friction may occur. These patterns are normal and do not affect braking performance. damage. The limited warranty does not cover damage caused by excessive, high speed, repetitive braking, track driving, racing, or other abuse or misuse of the vehicle.

Check the brake warning light by turning the ENGINE START/STOP button ON (do not start the engine). This light will be illuminated when the parking brake is applied with the ENGINE START/STOP button in the START or ON position.
Before driving, be sure the parking brake is fully released and the brake warning light is off.
If the brake warning light remains on after the parking brake is released while the engine is running, there may be a malfunction in the brake system. Immediate attention is necessary.
If at all possible, cease driving the vehicle immediately. If that is not possible, use extreme caution while operating the vehicle and only continue to drive the vehicle until you can reach a safe location or repair shop.

Electronic Parking Brake

Applying the parking brake
To apply the EPB (electronic parking brake):

Kia Stinger 2022 Drive Mode Integrated Control System User Guide

2022 Kia Stinger Drive Mode Integrated Control System Guidelines

Drive mode integrated control system

Kia-Stinger-2022-Drive-Mode-Integrated-Control-System-User-Guide-01

The drive mode may be selected according to the driver’s preference or road condition.
The mode changes whenever the DRIVE MODE button is turned.

  • SMART mode: SMART mode automatically adjusts the driving mode (ECO ↔ COMFORT ↔ SPORT) in accordance with the driver’s driving habits.
  • COMFORT mode: COMFORT mode provides smooth driving and a comfortable ride.
  • SPORT mode: SPORT mode pro- vides a sporty but firm ride.
  • CUSTOM mode: CUSTOM mode allows the driver to mix aspects of other driving modes to make a customized mode.
  • ECO mode: ECO mode improves fuel efficiency for eco-friendly driving.

If it is in ECO mode, ECO mode will be set when the engine is restarted.

(However, if it is in SMART/COM-FORT/SPORT/CUSTOM mode, the drive mode will be set to COMFORT mode when the engine is restarted.)

NOTICE

  • When you mildly drive the vehicle in SMART mode, the drive mode changes to ECO mode to improve fuel efficiency. However, the actual fuel efficiency may differ in accordance with your driving situation (i.e. upward/downward slope, vehicle deceleration/acceleration).
  • When you dynamically drive the vehicle in SMART mode by abruptly decelerating or sharply turning, the drive mode changes to SPORT mode. However, it may adversely affect fuel economy.

Various drive situations, which you may encounter in SMART mode

  • The drive mode automatically changes to ECO mode after a certain period of time, when you gently depress the accelerator pedal (Your drive is categorized to be mild.).
  • The drive mode automatically changes from SMART ECO mode to SMART COMFORT mode after a certain period of time, when you sharply or repetitively depress the accelerator pedal.
  • The drive mode automatically changes to SMART COMFORT mode with the same driving patterns, when the vehicle starts to drive on an upward slope of a certain angle. The drive mode automatically returns to SMART ECO mode, when the vehicle enters a leveled road.
  • The drive mode automatically changes to SMART SPORT, when you abruptly accelerate the vehicle or repetitively operate the steering wheel (Your driving is categorized to be sporty.). In this mode, your vehicle drives in a lower gear for abrupt accelerating/decelerating and increases the engine brake performance.
  • You may still sense the engine brake performance, even when you release the accelerator pedal in SMART SPORT mode. It is because your vehicle remains in a lower gear over a certain period of time.
  • The drive mode automatically changes to SMART SPORT mode only in dynamic driving situations. In most of normal driving situations, the drive mode sets to be either in SMART ECO mode or in SMART COMFORT mode.

Limitation of SMART mode

The SMART mode may be limited in the following situations. (The OFF indicator illuminates in those situations.)

  • The driver manually moves the shift lever: It deactivates SMART mode.
  • Smart Cruise Control is activated: Smart Cruise Control may deactivate the SMART mode. (SMART mode is not automatically deactivated just by activating Smart Cruise Control.)
  • The transmission oil temperature is either extremely low or extremely high: The SMART mode can be active in most of the normal driving situations. However, an extremely high/ low transmission oil temperature may temporarily deactivate the SMART mode, because the transmission condition is out of normal operation condition.

SPORT mode

SPORT mode manages the driving dynamics by automatically adjusting the steering effort, and the engine and transmission control logic for enhanced driver performance.

  • When SPORT mode is selected by using the DRIVE MODE button, the SPORT indicator (orange color) will illuminate.
  • Whenever the engine is restarted, the Drive Mode will revert back to COMFORT mode. If SPORT mode is desired, re-select SPORT mode from the DRIVE MODE button.
  • When SPORT mode is activated:
    • The engine rpm will tend to remain raised over a certain length of time even after releasing the accelerator
    • Upshifts are delayed when accelerating

NOTICE
In SPORT mode, the fuel efficiency may decrease.

CUSTOM mode

CUSTOM mode enables drivers to build their own customized mode. The driver can choose between different Engine/Transmission, Steering, Suspension, AWD, and Active Engine Sound settings.

  • To access CUSTOM mode settings rotate the Drive Mode knob until getting to CUSTOM mode. A Graphic picture of Kia Stinger will pop up on the main screen with a setting button. Use the setting button and change different settings to build your own mode.
  • Once the CUSTOM mode settings are chosen they will be saved and will remain that way until changed again in settings.
  • Whenever the engine is restarted, the Drive Mode will revert back to COMFORT mode. If CUSTOM mode is desired, re-select CUSTOM mode from the DRIVE MODE button.

ECO mode

When the Drive Mode is set to ECO mode, the engine and transmission control logic are changed to maximize fuel efficiency.

  • When ECO mode is selected by using the DRIVE MODE button, the ECO indicator (green color) will illuminate.
  • If the vehicle is set to ECO mode when the engine is turned OFF and restarted the Drive Mode setting will remain in ECO mode.

NOTICE
Fuel efficiency depends on the driver’s driving habits and road conditions.
