A long way from excrement to rolling pile of garbage I agree.Kia/Hyundai have come along way in terms of reliability and build quality.
The Arteon/Stinger here in US are both sportback sedans. The base stinger and arteon have very similar engines, stinger has a larger engine option Arteon does not.
And we were specifically talking about the wagon, but even if you choose to compare the Atreon Sedan to the Stinger it's not Apples for Apples. More Apples to Kiwis
