2021 BMW 2-Series vs. 2021 KIA Stinger


The 2021 BMW 2-Series is as sporty a sedan as you can get anywhere. The 2-Series comes with a host of features and is stylish enough to turn heads wherever you go. For those looking for a sporty sedan, the 20-Series fits the bill perfectly. The interior is also spacious with a generous provision in the trunk for luggage. The 2021 KIA Stinger is an equally dashing sports sedan with impressive sporting credentials. It struggles with build quality though and the interior is less spacious than one would expect. Here is a comparison between these two vehicles with a verdict on which one wins.

Design & Style

With the 2-Series, you get the sense that this is a car that was built to please car enthusiasts. The styling is very distinct and the car features flared wheel arches as well as large sport wheels. The body is also handsomely contoured, further enhancing the sporty feel of the car. Inside the cabin, BMW went for their signature theme where everything is exactly where you would expect it to be and within reach. For the KIA Stinger, the great external styling does not extend to the interior. The car has a dated interior cabin and even the infotainment display above the dashboard does little to change that dynamic. The interior is also full of less-than-premium components, ensuring that the Stinger cannot compete with the 2-Series in this area.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to technology and safety, the 2-Series features a variety of tech features. These include real-time traffic updates as well as a highly responsive touchscreen infotainment display. Buyers also get to enjoy smartphone integration. There are many other options available as options so you have the ability to customize your 2-Series as you wish. The KIA Stinger has an impressive range of tech including a touchscreen display as well as an upgradable six-speaker audio system. It is here that the build quality of the Stinger comes into play. The tech does not feel anywhere comparable to that in the 2-Series. The infotainment system is sluggish and the graphics subpar.


Under the hood, 2-Series buyers are assured of a top-quality ride thanks to a 2-liter turbocharged engine that gives the 2-Series plenty of power. Designed to be a sports sedan, the 2-Series easily dispatches corners while remaining incredibly composed. Cabin insulation is top notch and ambient noise is efficiently eliminated. When it comes to the Stinger, the sports sedan from KIA is motivated by a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine that delivers plenty of power. For those looking for more speed, there is a V6 version that is available.

The Bottom Line

When it comes to speed and engine performance, the KIA Stinger and the BMW 2-Series have almost comparable numbers. The difference comes with everything else. The 2-Series is a superbly designed sedan with a luxurious interior. It offers real luxury and excellent tech features. This makes the BMW 2-Series the clear winner in this comparison.
