Kia Stinger hatchback - Practicality & boot space

A spacious interior for long trips, but rivals have bigger boots

Carbuyer Rating

3.7 out of 5

The Kia Stinger is a spacious ‘fastback’ with just about enough boot space and some practical touches dotted around the interior. Its tailgate includes the rear window, so the car is a lot more versatile and easy to load than a BMW 3 Series saloon. That makes up for the fact that the Stinger has a slightly smaller boot than rivals.

Kia Stinger interior space & storage

There’s plenty of space in the Stinger for the driver and front-seat passenger, and you should be able to find your preferred driving position thanks to power-adjustable memory front seats and electric adjustment for the rake and reach of the steering wheel.

The rear seats offer adequate legroom for even taller adults but those same passengers will suffer slightly in the headroom department because of the coupe roofline. Low-mounted front seats mean there isn’t too much foot room underneath. The centre console incorporates a tray for wireless phone charging.

Boot space

The Kia Stinger has a 406-litre boot. Although very usable in its own right, it’s significantly down on the 480-litre boots of the Audi A5 Sportback and BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. The Stinger’s boot is at least made a little more practical by the powered tailgate that comes as standard, plus the split-folding rear seats help with the loading of longer items. Kia has also ensured the car has a low boot lip, which will make it easy to load bulkier or heavy things.
