Top 5 Fastest Kia Cars; 0-60 Times Revealed

If you have a need for speed, you have probably wondered what the fastest Kia car is in the US.

Over the past few years, it was the Kia K900 that held the top spot, which was no real surprise given that it is powered by a V8 engine that cranks out 420 horses.

The K900 luxury sedan goes from 0-60 in a mere 5.5 seconds, showing just how hard those horses work.

The Kia K900 may be about to lose the crown as Kia’s fastest car, though, as the upcoming Stinger sports sedan looks set to topple the king.

This is a vehicle that has been generating a lot of buzz lately, and for a good reason.

Kia 0-60Kia has delivered some of the details on the Stinger model, and we are suitably impressed.

It’s a beautiful looking vehicle, but also one that is going to burn up the road, going from 0-60 in just 4.9 seconds.

Those numbers are reserved for the range-topping GT trim level, which comes equipped with a twin turbo V6 mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox, with that powerplant delivering 365 horsepower.

We have a handy little table to help you identify the 5 fastest cars that Kia has to offer, but let’s also take a closer look at some of them.

Kia Stinger 0-60 time: 4,9 seconds

This will be the first time that Kia have dipped into the sports sedan segment, and it looks as though they are on to a winner. The engine that powers this beauty is a 3.3L V6 twin turbo that delivers 365 horses. It is mated to an 8-speed sport tuned automatic transmission.

Kia K900 0-60: 5,5 seconds

While the Stinger will be all about sports styling, the K900 has always been about luxury. Being luxurious doesn’t mean that you need to be boring, though, and the K900 is one of the fastest in the Kia line-up, thanks in large part to its 420-hp V8 engine.

Kia Cadenza 0-60: 6,2 seconds

Another premium model from Kia, and another that delivers a real jolt of power. While there is no turbo model, the 3.3L V6 engine is still able to crank out 290 horses. All that power takes the Cadenza from 0-60 in just 6.2 seconds.

Kia Soul turbo 0-60: 6,5 seconds

The Soul may be funky and cute, but it is also surprisingly fast. The new mid-cycle refresh added a 1,6-liter turbo engine and a 7-speed DCT into the mix, cranking out 201-hp, and allowing the Soul to go from 0-60 in just 6.5 seconds.

Kia Fort5 SX 0-60: 6,9 seconds

The Forte comes in 3 distinctly different body styles, but it is the top of the range Forte5 SX that is the speedster. Under the hood is a 201-hp 1.6-liter turbo that takes this model from 0-60 in just under 7 seconds.
