2018 DTE Systems Kia Stinger Here's an example for a beautiful and yet super powerful car. Kia's striking grand tourer won Red Dot award in the "Best of the Best Car Design" segment this year and also received neat power boost that adds a neat kick to the overall power output: the 4-door beauty can now produce a total of 420hp and 624Nm, which means +50hp and +114Nm of additional power. This means that the Korean pride can leave some worthy rivals as Jaguar XE 3.0 and Audi S5 behind.

All these improvements result on some fast sprints and confident cornering. The vehicle can run to 100km/h sprint in mere 4.9 second. This is actually a 10 per cent better result, compared to the achievements of the stock drivetrain. Furthermore, PedalBox can engage different tuning programs: City, Sport, Sport Plus and stock condition. Plugged in by two connectors, the device instantly connects with the heart of the vehicle and can be tested immediately.
