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.

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.
