From the editors:

Road Test Editor Zac Palmer: “The Frontier is already one of my favorite midsize pickups. It’s remarkably quiet and refined on the inside, and I love that Nissan hasn’t made it significantly bigger than the previous model. I wish I was there, and its below-average towing capacity isn’t bothersome when it comes to this size and class of truck. “

2022 Kia Stinger

Quick take: A special product that proves that Kia can screw sports cars. It’s comfortable, elegantly styled, lavishly decorated interior, and only disappointing when you push the chassis to its limits.

Score: 8.5

What it competes with: Volkswagen arteon, Acura TLX, Jaguar XF, BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé, Audi A5 Sportback

Pros: Sleek and sporty design, robust powertrains, excellent handling and handling

Cons: Small rear seat, G70 drive even better

From the editors:

Road Test Editor Zac Palmer – “Kia fixed what bothered me the most about the Stinger prior to the update with this update. The exhaust and noise from the V6 were anemic, and the four-cylinder lacked emotion. With a V6 that sounds more emotional and more power from the 2.5 turbo four-cylinder, the Stinger lineup is right where I want it to be. “

Senior Editor, Green John Beltz Snyder – “The Stinger is just a bundle of dynamite. It’s smooth, fast and roomy, and with up-to-date technology that aligns it with the rest of the phenomenal Hyundai / Kia line. Its styling is magnetic, attractive to fans. curious around the parking lot. I would happily recommend it to anyone considering buying one. “
