Many drivers looking for their next sports car wouldn’t even think of putting a vehicle from Kia in the running. If you’re one of those people who think that they only make commuter cars and SUVs, you’d be wrong! At Weseloh Kia, we’re confident that their 2019 Stinger can go toe-to-toe with many of the powerful cars out there right now. We believe in it so much that we’ll compare it to 2019 BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo!

Performance

The BMW 3 Series GT has a great engine—a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder machine capable of delivering 248 horsepower. This is certainly an enviable number, but the Stinger is able to evenly match its competitor. Its base trim is equipped with a 2.0L Twin Scroll Turbocharged engine that delivers 255 horsepower. The BMW can be upgraded to its 340i xDrive trim, which has a 3.0L turbo engine that increases its power to 322 horsepower and 330 lb.-ft. of torque. The Stinger, on the other hand, has a 3.3L Twin Turbo V6 engine delivering 365 horsepower and 376 lb.-ft. of torque, blowing the BMW out of the water with a 0-60 MPH acceleration time1 that’s as low as 4.7 seconds!

Comfort

Once you actually settle into your drive, you’ll continue to find that the 2019 Kia Stinger provides more for you than the BMW 3 Series GT is able to. For instance, the lowest Stinger trim has leather upholstery, while the BMW is only equipped with leatherette seating. The Kia also has standard heated seats, while the BMW requires some kind of upgrade to enjoy them. Finally, the Stinger is available with a feature you’d expect on any 2019 model—cooled and ventilated seats. The BMW 3 Series, shockingly, does not have these available on any of its trim levels. The next time you’re heading to the Carlsbad Beaches, you might be a little disappointed in the 3 Series knowing that it can’t help cool you down.

Technology

In a car of the 21st century, drivers rightly expect to be surrounded by the best technology available. The Stinger certainly is able to provide, and centers many of its features in the available 8-inch touchscreen display. Drivers of the BMW will only benefit from a 6.5-inch center screen, which they’ll find more difficult to read and control while out and on the road. This isn’t just an annoyance, but could even be unsafe. The Stinger also features wireless phone charging2, so even when you find yourself without a USB cable, you’ll never be without your smartphone while on the road. The BMW is not able to match this, and after a few hours on a road trip you could find yourself missing out on your favorite playlists and podcasts.

After pitting the 2019 Kia Stinger vs 2019 BMW 3 Series Grand Turismo near San Diego, CA, it’s clear that the Kia comes out victorious! You might be having some trouble believing it, so stop by Weseloh Kia and test drive it for yourself. Then you’ll truly understand the power that the Stinger packs.

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!!!

What a great organization...just totaled my suv so walked through every dealership around Weseloh Kia as well as all the dealerships on Escondido auto row. I ended up with a Kia Soul excellent handling, interior and options. My salesman Tyler Gohring was very knowledgeable, personable and just downright a pleasure to work with. I'm an old fart and Tyler was very patient helping me to understand all the whistles and bells. Hope he has enough time to ride around with me for the next month or so till it all sinks in.

my husband and i walked into this dealership with no clue how the process went with buying a new car or what we were even interested in. within minutes of arriving we were greeted by Tommy with his amazing customer service! he took the time to show us what we thought you were interested in and what he thought we could potentially be interested in. we came pretty late that night but tommy was in no rush to get us out of there and even stayed after hours to help us find our dream car. with all our questions and or going back and fourth deciding what car we wanted, tommy never stopped helping up or seemed annoyed that we were asking so many questions like many other care salesmen may be at times. morale of the story is that my husband and i drove our dream car off the lot the next night all because of tommy and his amazing work! he did whatever he could to assure we were satisfied and helped the best we could! thank you so much wesleoh Kia for all your help and for making our first car purchase the best!

Steve Uyeno is the real thing. Got a car there. Tiny bit of negotiating as expected. Everything super smooth. Service like luxury car brands. Steve converted me!!! You can't do better.
