If you’re searching for a luxury sedan to motivate and add excitement to your morning and afternoon commutes, then you don’t have to look any further than the 2018 Kia Stinger. This beast is equipped with a performance that pushes the limits and an incredible interior that will keep you comfortable as you cruise. We’ve put it up against a fierce competitor – the 2018 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe – to prove why it ultimately takes the gold. Once you’ve skimmed through our comparison, come down to Weseloh Kia to take it for a test drive during our business hours!

Performance

It’s no secret that performance is one of the main aspects you look for when shopping for a vehicle and the 2018 Stinger and 2018 4 Series Gran Coupe don’t disappoint in this category, but the Stinger takes things to another level. Its standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine cranks out a lively 260 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, proving it will get you when you need to be quicker than anticipated.  The 4 Series Gran Coupe, on the other hand, only produces 248 horsepower and 258 through its standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, so you won’t feel that power you desire when you step on the accelerator and you might be arriving to your final destination later than you thought. For more power during your drives, both of these models come with available engines you can go with. The Stinger’s available 3.3 V6 engine punches out an adrenaline-pumping 376 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, so you won’t have any problems leaving traffic in the dust as you zoom by. Sadly, the 4 Series Gran Coupe’s 3.0L 6-cylinder engine only delivers 322 horsepower and 332 lb.-ft. of torque, so you won’t have the strength you want during your drives. We can’t forget to note that the Stinger goes from 0-60 MPH in as few as 4.7 seconds1, showing you that you won’t have any problems whizzing past the drivers around. Unfortunately, the 4 Series Gran Coupe achieves 0 to 60 MPH in 5.6 seconds2, proving the Stinger is ready for any adventure you want to set out on!

Interior

Both the 2018 Stinger and 2018 4 Series Gran Coupe will keep you comfortable and relaxed as you’re cruising, but only the Stinger comes with certain features to make every drive unforgettable. When it gets chilly outside, you’ll be able to keep warm and cozy in the Stinger since it comes with standard heated seats. Not only this, but you can adjust the seats 12 different ways with just the push of a button to find that optimum comfort each time you’re behind the wheel. To have the amenity of heated seats in the 4 Series Gran Coupe, you unfortunately have to dish out some extra money since they only come as part of a package. Also, in the 4 Series Gran Coupe, you can only move the seats around 10 different ways, so you might not find that maximum comfort and might be dealing with some aches and pains when you step out of the cabin. Last, but certainly not least, the Stinger provides you with 56.4 inches of shoulder room in the front and 54.8 inches in the back, so no one on board will be bumping shoulders and can sit back comfortably when cruising down Interstate 15. In the 4 Series Gran Coupe, you’ll only be getting 54.8 inches of shoulder room in the front and 54.3 in the rear, so there may be some fighting for space between your passengers. Clearly, the Stinger outshines the 4 Series Coupe once again and proves why it’s the obvious choice!

We hope this comparison between the 2018 Kia Stinger and 2018 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe has shown you why the Stinger crossed the finish line first! When you have some free time, visit us at Weseloh Kia to check out the rest of its amazing features. We can’t wait to see you!

I found a used Jeep Cherokee on this dealerships lot while searching online. It was generously priced and looked to be in great condition. I am from the Bay Area and work a typical 9-to-5, so flying down there mid-week and driving it back would have been a real hassle. I called the dealership to see what they would do for me. I was put in contact with one of their sales associates, Robert Sozanni. Robert was an absolute pleasure to work with! Clearly I had concerns about buying a vehicle online. Robert told me he was there to answer any questions I had. He walked out to the vehicle and did a full exterior and interior inspection for me. He told me about all the bells and whistles on the vehicle. I felt a lot more comfortable about buying the vehicle once I had spoken with Robert. Alright, I am ready to buy this thing and have it shipped up north! John Littlefield and Mike Dufour were the two front office members that I worked with. They were both huge helps in getting me all the documents I needed. They shipped my documents overnight to my office, with a return overnight UPS envelop. They had no concerns about working with my credit union, or the fact that I was never going to actually show up to purchase the vehicle. Robert personally saw my Jeep off as my shipping agent came to pick it up. Robert kept me up-to-date the entire time with the current state of the process. I couldn't speak more highly of this dealership! I strongly recommend anyone in the market for a new vehicle to go check them out.

Another great experience at Weseloh Kia Carlsbad in their service department. I had to take the time to write a review because I went there for an oil change and one of the guys had called out sick. Everyone was so incredibly slammed, I could imagine that they were having a very tough day. But you would never believe it by the way they were acting. Every one was in high spirits! They were working efficiently, yet making sure we all felt taken care of. I thought since they were so busy my service might take longer than usual, but they were right on time. Kory even made me feel extra special by remembering my name! And on top of it all, my car was squeaky clean and running great! Another 5 star experience! Thanks guys! And keep up the good work! 1

I went in for service on my vehicle. Kory Enger helped me out. Very helpful, friendly and likable. They got the service done is less time than expected and addressed every issue that I had with the vehicle. I generally got an honest vibe from the place. I came in believing that I might have needed an alignment, but they determined that it wasn't necessary. I appreciated that they were upfront whereas most other dealers would have jumped on the chance to do an unnecessary alignment. I have been to both Kia Irvine and North County for service in the past. Both of which have sold me services that I later found out I didn't need. I generally don't like going into a dealership and having to determine if what the mechanics are telling me is true or not. I appreciate the honesty here so I'll be coming here for future maintenance work.

I just bought a used car from Weseloh and the customer service, hands down, was the best I've ever experienced from a car dealership! From Tyler, Toby, to the finance manager (sorry I forgot his name), they were more than helpful in answering all my questions, and doing their best to meet my needs and requirements for a vehicle. I would not hesitate to buy another vehicle from there or go back for servicing and maintenance. Thank you, Gentleman, for making an arduous process so much more pleasant with your patience, assistance, and stellar customer service! I would highly recommend Weseloh to anyone who is looking for a vehicle.

I had an amazing experience working with Tyler at Weseloh. I drive past the store everyday on my way to the office and often look to see if they received any new cars that would be good to keep at my Park City house. I am always impressed with the quality of inventory and one day found exactly what I was looking for. After I inquired about a new SUV they got in stock, Tyler immediately emailed me back and made himself readily available to address my needs . It was ready for me to test drive when I got there. All of my questions were answered right away. We quickly agreed on a fair price and the paperwork was a breeze. It is refreshing to work with genuinely nice and friendly people. Tyler went above and beyond delivering the car to my office. To top it off, he even helped install the roof racks that came with the car. The customer experience I received was exceptional and rare in today's marketplace. I highly recommend Weseloh for all your car buying needs.

Mike Lambresi does an outstanding job at running this Kia Store! Coupled with his team Robert in sales and Sean in Fiance. This trio made the deal smooth and easy! I called up and pre negeocated my purchase. Nothing but honesty and integrity. My financing was in place within a few hours with multiple options of financing for our situation. Sean in the finance department had us in and out 35 mins! Painless!! I suggest you ask for him the next time your buy a car from Weselol Kia in Carlsbad. You’ll be happy you I did as I am! THANK YOU ALL again for helping my daughter dial in a great deal with creative financing on a Nice car that was fast and easy!! . - Very happy customer!!

I was very happy with my experience in purchasing a car from this dealership. I can recommend Tyler as a sales person that I would work with again in a heartbeat. I reached out to multiple Kia dealers before opting to work with this one. Yeah, there was some price negotiation, but it was all very reasonable and respectful and I drove away happy.

We went in with one specific car in mind. A red Kia Niro hybrid EX we saw on their website. I'd been pining for the niro for months. Since I test drove it back in (March?)! I've had bad experiences at many car dealer ships. My credit isn't perfect and I often find dealers PUSHING me into a car THEY pick for me. Weseloh Kia was the exception. Ryan was good to us. Hearing our concerns. Working with the numbers we were laying out for him. What we expected to pay versus what we were seeing. They worked magic with those numbers. Though we're paying more than expected, it was mistakes on our part, not theirs. I'm vastly happy with the help we received and the vehicle I got. On top of that, the finance department was top notch! Sean G. was extremely transparent and even offered us a deal on our extended coverage. When we need a new car, I will definitely be visiting Weseloh FIRST!!!

Had another great car buying experience yesterday at Weseloh Kia. I normally despise buying cars. Daniel Skerry who helped me was amazing! Very responsive, honest, no nonsense, and gave me a great deal on a new Stinger without all the back and forth. If you are thinking about a Kia you should definitely go to Weseloh and talk to Daniel. :) I LOVE my car!!!
