Model Highlights

Kia's flagship luxury car has a number of changes for 2007. Cosmetically, the Amanti gets new headlamps and taillamps, a new decklid and bumpers, a new wheel design, and a new dual-outlet exhaust.

Most importantly, under the hood is a new, 3.8L aluminum-block V6 engine that makes 264 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque, coupled with a five-speed Sportmatic automatic transmission.

The new Amanti is about 250 pounds lighter than before, so the big sedan is significantly quicker now, and the fully independent suspension has been revised for improved ride and handling.

The Amanti comes in a single, very well-equipped model, at a low price, with relatively few options. The interior gets standard chrome interior door handles plus wood and leather trim, while upholstery is either cloth or leather. A leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls is also standard, along with dual-zone automatic climate control, a six-speaker cassette/CD sound system, heated mirrors, power front seats, and a sunroof.

Various other popular options are grouped in packages. The Leather Package brings leather seats, a memory setting for the driver's seat and mirrors, heated front seats, power-adjustable pedals, a trip computer, and upgraded audio. The Premium Package adds extra gauges, aluminum interior trim, and 17-inch chrome wheels. Machined 17-inch alloy wheels are also available.

The Amanti has eight standard air bags, including separate front and rear side air bags and full-length side curtain air bags. Active head restraints and four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with electronic brake distribution (EBD) are also standard, while electronic stability control (ESC), traction control, and brake assist are available in an affordably priced option package.

Kia provides powertrain warranty coverage to ten years or 100,000 miles and basic coverage for five years or 60,000 miles.


Model News

Kia's large luxury car, the Amanti, is given a cosmetic facelift for 2007. The appearance of the front and back has been revised, including new headlamps and taillamps and a dual exhaust. The interior gets a redesigned instrument panel, a new head unit for the sound system, new audio controls mounted on the steering wheel, a revised base cloth upholstery, and newly available black wood and metal trims.

The mechanical changes are especially significant in the new Amanti. It's significantly lighter than before, and also gets more power, in the way of a new 264-horsepower, 3.8L V6, which is 32 percent more powerful than last year's engine and also brings better fuel economy than the previous engine, according to the automaker.

Larger 17-inch machined alloy wheels are now available, and power adjustable pedals are a new option.


Value Writeup

The Kia Amanti already stood out in its class for its value and spacious interior, and 2007's redesign improves upon this. A much more powerful engine is standard and curb weight is reduced. It now boasts performance near the top of its class as well, along with a very high level of standard safety equipment. The Amanti comes in only a single, well-equipped model, and it looks like an even stronger value when comparing its price side-by-side to that of the competition when they're similarly equipped and optioned.
