There are five Stinger variants, based on three trim grades. 'GT-Line' and 'GT-Line S' models get the 2.0-litre T-GDi turbo petrol or 2.2-litre CRDi diesel power and are priced from about £32,000. The flagship GT-S uses only the top 3.3-litre T-GDi petrol V6 and costs around £40,500. That's about £7,000 less than a comparably-performing Audi S5 Sportback. All models are well equipped, featuring an 8.0-inch touchscreen navigation system with European mapping and a Traffic Messaging Channel. The Stinger can be connected to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay via a smartphone, has Bluetooth with voice recognition and music streaming and is equipped with a reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors and a 7.0-inch Thin Film Transistor (TFT) supervision cluster. A head-up display is also a standard feature, which displays speed and navigation instruction.
The base 'GT-Line' derivative has a nine-speaker sound system with front under-seat subwoofer, while the other two trim grades feature a 15-speaker harman/kardon premium sound system with subwoofer, external amp and front centre speaker. Leather upholstery and eight-way power-adjustable memory front seats are also standard. Standard safety features to assist drivers on long journeys include Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Driver Attention Warning and Speed Limit Information. GT-Line S and GT-S also have Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and GT-S is fitted with Brembo brakes. A limited slip differential is standard, as is an Active Bonnet to protect the heads of pedestrians in the event of a collision.
