ANCAP SAFETY is taking a number of precautions to assist in minimising effects on the community. These measures include remote working arrangements for staff and restricted physical contact with the community, our members and stakeholders. These arrangements are not expected to adversely affect the important service we provide to Australian & New Zealand consumers, and ANCAP safety rating information can continue to be accessed via our website. Safety is our priority. Please stay safe.

The Kia Stinger was introduced into Australia in October 2017 and New Zealand in January 2018. This 5 star ANCAP safety rating applies to all variants of the Kia Stinger on sale from April 2018 (built from February 2018) when specification upgrades were introduced. Separate ratings apply to models built prior to this date.

Dual frontal, side chest, side head-protecting (curtain) and driver knee airbags are standard. Autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and lane support systems (LSS) are standard on all variants built from February 2018.

A full list of safety features and technologies can be viewed within the Technical Report (see download link).

NOTE: In March 2018 ANCAP conducted a full width frontal test of an Australian specification Kia Stinger for audit test purposes. The audit test score was 3.88 points out of 8.00 which would give an overall Adult Occupant Protection score of 85.2%. This sees the existing 5 star ANCAP safety rating maintained. In the audit test, dummy readings indicated poor protection for the head, chest and pelvis body regions for the rear passenger.
