The Kia Stinger 2.0 T-GDi ‘GT-Line’ has been awarded ‘Best Petrol Tow Car’ at The Tow Car Awards 2018. The Stinger is Kia’s first grand tourer and first rear-wheel-drive car in the UK. The 2.0 T-GDi GT-Line has a maximum trailer load of 750kg unbraked and 1,500kg braked.
Commenting on the award, Steve Hicks, Sales Director of Kia Motor (UK) Limited said: “We are delighted that the Stinger has been recognised for its versatility and practicality, while still being an exciting and dynamic car to drive. The turbo-charged 2.0 litre petrol engine is ideally suited for long-distance touring and has the power and torque required to tow a good range of caravans and trailers. This recognition comes at an exciting time for the brand and for the Stinger as a model, having won multiple other awards and positive feedback from the media and consumers alike.”
David Motton, Tow Car Editor of Practical Caravan said: “The Stinger doesn’t look like a typical tow car. But the Kia proves that you don’t need a practical estate or a tough SUV to go caravanning. The 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine is lively and willing, and once up to speed the Stinger feels secure and stable. Boot space is the real eye-opener, with room to squeeze in more bags than we found in some SUVs. Overall, the Kia is one of the surprise packages of this year’s tests and a worthy winner of the ‘Best Petrol Tow Car’ award.”
