You won't find dials, buttons, or awkward monostable shifters here. The Stinger has a sporty T-shaped shifter that feels great in the hands. It's wrapped in a soft rubber material and, when you pull it into Drive, makes a satisfying click. It feels like you're doing something rather than pushing a button so the electronics can do the work.

There's no manual transmission option in the Stinger, but the steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters – made from real metal – add a feeling of sportiness. It feels rewarding to flick the paddles, but shifts are a tad slow, and even in Sport mode, the transmission will overrule the driver and upshift at redline.
