Model News

The 2009 Kia Spectra model line now has a wider option lineup that includes sunroof, anti lock brakes, and satellite radio. Otherwise, the car is carried over to 2009 with no significant changes.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Spectra has more interior space than most everything in its class, with an impressive 97 cubic feet inside. The Spectra also stands out for its very low base price and generous equipment list as well as for its extensive warranty coverage. The Spectra is also a comfortable small car, with a refined ride and quiet interior.


Model Highlights

The 2009 Kia Spectra has a starting base price of $13,200. The Spectra5, the hatch version, has a starting price of $16,345.

All 2009 Kia Spectra models are powered by a 138-horsepower 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder engine, and available with either a 5-speed manual gearbox or 4-speed automatic. With the manual transmission, the Spectra gets an EPA fuel economy rating of 23 mpg city, 30 mpg highway. When equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission the Spectra gets an EPA economy rating of 24 mpg city, 32 mpg highway

Both the sedan and hatchback have a very roomy interior with more passenger volume than most other small sedans its size, but the Spectra5 boasts additional passenger and cargo versatility. With its 60/40-split back seat folded forward, the Spectra5's storage capacity can be expanded to 52.8 cubic feet.

The Spectra and Spectra5 come with front seat-mounted side air bags and full-length side curtain air bags. Four-wheel disc brakes are standard across the model line, and anti-lock brakes are optional. Spectra also have a 4-wheel independent suspension, with MacPherson struts in front and a dual-link arrangement in back, providing a balance between ride comfort and responsiveness. Road noise is also well isolated--more so than most other small cars.

The base LX model comes with a 6-way-adjustable driver's seat, tilt steering column, a rear defroster, and dual 12-volt power outlets. EX and SX models come better equipped, with popular equipment such as remote keyless entry, air conditioning, and power windows and locks.

The top SX sedan model--along with the Spectra5 hatchback, which is only available in SX trim--adds a sportier character, including a sport-tuned suspension and front strut-tower bar for more responsive handling. SX models get 16-inch alloy wheels, sport-cloth seats with matching door panel inserts, metal-finish trim, metal sport pedals and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

As with other Kia models, the Spectra is backed by generous warranty coverage. A 5 year or 60,000 mile limited warranty covers the entire vehicle, then 10 years or 100,000 miles for powertrain. Five years of 60,000 miles of roadside assistance are also included.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
