Key Differences – 2018 Stinger vs Accord

As you can see, two of the main reasons Kia customers choose the Stinger over the competition is its outstanding warranties, including basic and drivetrain. With five years or 60,000 miles covered, the Stinger is protected two years or 24,000 miles longer than the Accord. As for the engines, the Stinger warranty lasts twice as many years—10 versus five—and covers up to 40,000 additional miles. Sufficient to say, the Stinger warranties are miles and miles ahead of the ones protecting the Accord.

Speaking of engines, the one in the Stinger pumps out 255 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque while the Accord trails behind with 192 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. This distinct difference in power and strength is also the gap between a 'good' and 'great' driving experience. A sufficient amount of horsepower and torque will get the job done, but who doesn't want a powerful, dynamic, and utterly exciting engine? Who doesn't want a car that gets your blood pumping, adrenaline flowing, and smile showing? Who doesn't want a Stinger?
