If you're looking for a cool ride that also leaves the rest of its competitors in the dust, you've come to the right place. The 2018 Kia Stinger and the 2018 Porsche Panamera have everything you want in more in your next high-performance ride.

But how can shoppers in Mechanicsburg, Harrisburg, and Carlisle possibly decide between the two? We're going to help you do just that with this detailed informational comparison. Let's get started by looking at how these vehicles perform!

Stinger vs Panamera: Performance

When it comes to high-performing vehicles, you want to consider power output as well as pickup. The 2018 Kia Stinger's 3.3-L Twin-Turbo V6 engine puts the pedal to the metal in both of these categories with 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque. This vehicle takes it a step further with a 0-60 MPH time of just 4.7 seconds.

Compare this to the 2018 Porsche Panamera and its slightly smaller 3.0-L V6 engine. This vehicle maxes out at 330 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque resulting in a slower 0-60 MPH time of 5.4 seconds.

Additionally, the Stinger takes the in performance with better efficiency on top of better performance. When equipped with all-wheel drive, the Stinger gets an efficient EPA-estimated 29 highway / 22 city MPG1. The Panamera, on the other hand, only gets an EPA-estimated 28 highway / 21 city MPG.

Stinger vs Panamera: Safety Features

With all the power in both the 2018 Kia Stinger and the 2018 Porsche Panamera comes great responsibility. Luckily, these vehicles deliver when it comes to responsibility, too, with advanced safety features like rearview camera displays, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Control, Lane Keep Assist, and Park Assist.

However, the Stinger goes above and beyond when it comes to safety with extra features like Forward Collision Warning, Forward Collision Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, and Driver Attention Warning. The latter system monitors the driver's alertness and puts out a warning if it feels that your attention level has reduced to an unsafe level.

Stinger vs Panamera: Interior

As luxury vehicles, the 2018 Kia Stinger and the 2018 Porsche Panamera bring the heat when it comes to interior. Both come standardly equipped with dual-zone automatic temperature control, leather upholstery, remote keyless entry, and smart infotainment systems with smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.

While luxury and convenience are important, you also want to think about the space you have. With the Stinger, you won't have to worry about space with five spacious seats and more than 23 cubic feet of cargo space. With the Panamera, you'll only have room enough for four passengers. Additionally, this model has just 17.4 cubic feet of cargo.
