Model Highlights

Kia's premium large car went through a number of changes for 2007, and carries on essentially unchanged for 2008.Under the hood is the 3.8L aluminum-block "Lambda" V6 engine that makes 264 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque, and it is coupled with a five-speed Sportmatic automatic transmission. The car's fully independent suspension delivers satisfying handling.

The Amanti continues to come 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 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 premium large car, the Amanti, was given a cosmetic facelift and mechanical overhaul last year, so there was little need to change things for 2008.


Value Writeup

The 2008 Kia Amanti stands out in its class for its value and spacious interior. It boasts performance near the top of its class and has 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 compared side-by-side to similarly equipped and optioned competition.
