Kia is already testing the AWD version of the Stinger on ice and snow

Kia Stinger

Kia Stinger is beginning to emerge as a very important part of the catalogue of the manufacturer south Korean. Easy, as such, it will not in the market to which you want to access but Kia are convinced that is a product of the height of the top of the segment. Proof of this is that never ever a Kia had the design, quality interior, technology and the range of mechanics that it looks like the stinger of a wasp (English translation of the Stinger).

of the firstfruits of the model (and almost the trademark) is the version that will hit the market with four-wheel drive AWD. Of series the Stinger is a rear-wheel-drive, but for those markets (and customers) wishing to do so are preparing a version with four-wheel drive. With it will come a little closer to the best models on the market and as in the house know they have to put on the point that your feelings are the best.

One of the places that tend to go to firms for test these systems on four-wheel-drive zones are cold and humid climates. The square in which Kia is now beta-testing its Stinger is Sweden and tenor of the video has posted on its official YouTube channel the model points very good ways.

The frozen lakes of Lapland (just before you reach the Arctic Circle) is where you have been the engineers of development of the Kia Stinger testing certain sensitive parts of the model. points that are being put to the test are the brakes, the suspensions, controls of traction and stability and as not, the awd system AWD that will take you.

This drive system AWD works in the following way. In normal traffic conditions, the Stinger sends the engine power to the rear axle. However, if you detect loss of traction in the latter, the system could send up to 50 per cent of torque to the front axle. However, this system is smart (and also adjustable in a voluntary way) and continuously is transferring torque to both axes with values between 20 and 40 percent.

The guarantee provided by Kia for the Stinger to become a model with a large dynamic behavior comes from the hands of Albert Biermann. This engineer was in the division BMW M and also to test the traction, AWD also is working to equip the Stinger of some dynamic qualities worthy of a rival for the BMW 3 Series, what will?
