2021 Kia Stinger

It’s surprising that Kia went it with their sportscar idea. Just looking at the German competitors and one would think that Kia lost all the courage. Surprisingly, The Stinger actually put up quite a fight in terms of performance, even if it was low in sales.

But the company’s design boss promised that there would be major changes – all in the hopes of generating higher sales. A camouflaged version of the Stinger was already seen roaming the streets around April this year. The actual release is expected sometime at the end of 2020. The 2021 Kia Stinger puts a pretty face to well-balanced ride and handling. The Kia Stinger is a five-seat, five-door hatchback that’s intended as a near-luxury rival to cars like the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes E-Class, though it’s much less expensive.

The 2021 Toyota Supra gains a less powerful, more intriguing turbo-4 edition.

After the Jetta’s redesign from 2019 to 2020, it gives us very little to expect since the makers almost had nothing new to add. The 2021 update is highly suspected to be a carryover of the entire lineup in the previous years. The current design features a thin dash and an LCD gauge cluster. It also carries a premium interior look despite the unappealing exterior design. There hasn’t been any news yet as to the specific release of the latest VW Jetta GLI but CarsDirect says that it’s bound to be at the end of 2020. The Jetta is sharply styled, crisp, but conservative, too. It’s not thrilling, but our styling score of 4 reflects an interior that lacks a pulse.

The current Toyota Supra was a fine vehicle in itself. It’s a lot of fun to drive and gives the occupants a feeling of adventure and luxury at the same time. So it’s a surprise that Toyota even had an update for it.

But for its 2021 version, Supra is expected to be available in eight dashing color choices. Two of these colors – namely Refraction, a blue and black bi-tone, and Nocturnal, a pitch-black hue – will only be offered in 500 units each. It also had other changes as Matt Farah tested. Automobilemag says it could cost an estimated amount of $40,000 upon release. Toyota sells the 2021 Supra in 2.0, 3.0, 3.0 Premium, and A91 versions. The 2.0 has a turbo-4 engine with 255 horsepower, while 3.0 editions score a 382-hp turbo-6. With rear-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic, the slower Supra still shoots to 60 mph in 5.0 seconds and to a top speed of 155 mph; the 3.0 hits the 60-mph mark in 3.9 seconds.

In 1969, Nissan introduced its first Z sports car, and it’s been rewriting the rules of sports cars ever since. While Nissan has kept most of the details regarding the all-new 2021 Nissan 400z under wraps, we do have a few details to share. We know that it will come with a twin-turbo V-6 and a six-speed manual transmission. The 400Z is just one of many cars that Nissan offers from its old lineup. And though it’s one of the less common choices for a sports car, this lineup is actually as competitive as it gets. For the update, the 400Z is rumored to get its engine from the Infiniti Q60. That means it will be running on a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine.

As far as rumors get, this Nissan will continue to have the same seven-speed transmission though the chance of a six-speed AT is also out there.

The world’s bestselling roadster competes with the mechanically identical Fiat 124 Spider and the aspirational BMW Z4.
