    The Stinger is a special sport version, like Cadillac's V-Sport or Buick's GS.

    All Buick needs to do is get one of the Cadillac V6 engines and update Sportback with a GS.
    The V6 is already in LaCrosse, but lower HP than Cadillac.

    The top AWD version of Regal Sportback has all the Regal GS features, but looks basicly the same as a base Sportback.
    At least Stinger has a more sport look than the base Kia Optima.

    Stinger might get sales/leases from GM buyers, who can't get that performance at that price. My Cadillac dealer owns a KIA
    dealership next door, so it will be easy to take a look.

    The ATS with the V6 has more Horsepower but is slower to 60MPH than the 2.0L Turbo model. Completely different torque characteristics. If Buick puts the same V6 as the Lacrosse, the 2.0 L Turbos will probably be quicker as well.
    I for one don't feel like paying premium money for a V6 that is slower than its cheaper brothers.
