The Stinger is marketed as GT... so it has four proper seats with a good sized boot... but definitely not with the same space as the K5 lar... the rear bench already will be more spacious for the K5 cos you can sit 3 abreast...

My car only 5 years old this year... So not considering at all... Not worth changing... Just need the car cos of very young kids now... In the future, may not even be able to afford to drive... Good thing is train station within walking distance from my home, and next to my work place... So can don't drive in the future... Which is when this car's COE expires... The realities of life...

Yup true life real life. Enjoy while it’s there and if it’s not enjoyable, may consider selling off earlier to get more cash back so can enjoy in other areas too ya.

High coe. All scrapped. Beside large saloon Korean is not popular in sg. Heck even the Camry and accords are the same now. Everyone has gravitated to merc bmw and the likes.

Hmm... ya... besides K5 now no new car on sale... used car $10k-11k/year depreciation... but stinger $15k/year depreciation.

No new model cos previous model no one buy... your car's face-lifted model almost didn't sell more than a few cars... I've only ever seen one... all the K5s are the initial model... no sales = no new model... the AD won't waste money on homologation when they're sure there's no market for the car... selling one or two cars can't justify the cost and time spent on the process... that's why I don't expect to see the new K5 or Sonata in Singapore... surprised that the Staria was even launched... and even more surprised that the Carnival was brought into Singapore...

No ah.. mine 2013 still not facelifted yet. Initial launch  2011-2012 has no electric handbrake and auto hold.. 2012 end onwards then have... 

then after 2013 then facelift exterior and abit interior. 
 

in anyway, they launch the K5 was during the coe going upwards. Rarely people look at K5... cos coe so high, still got for 2.0? 
 

now u see coe so high, people buy stinger? $190k.. crazy price... 😀

 

maybe when coe is low, they can consider bringing in... k5....
