Skoda sexes up the Rapid. Not the world’s trick­i­est as­sign­ment

The long-term fate of the Kia Stinger could be in doubt if sales ex­pec­ta­tions aren’t met in dif­fi­cult mar­kets. “Whether there will be a re­place­ment [Stinger] is too early to say,” Kia’s head of de­sign Gre­gory Guil­liame told Aussie me­dia. “Time will tell, it’s still a bit early but Amer­ica needs to do vol­ume. They need to sell the car,” Guil­liame added. While Aus­tralians re­main en­thu­si­as­tic for the twin­turbo sedan, sup­ply con­straints at a fac­tory level have lim­ited sales, with a three month wait for V6 mod­els.
