2008 KIA AMANTI
Premium Midsize Sedan Offers Luxury, Performance, and Safety as Standard at a Non-Premium Price
The flagship of the Kia Motors America vehicle line-up, the 2008 Amanti provides luxury, style and performance as standard features in a value-minded package. Earning a J.D. Power and Associates APEAL Award in 2005 and recently awarded a 'Good' rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in side impact crash tests, the Amanti was refreshed last year, benefiting from a lighter platform and modified suspension. The interior and exterior also were adorned with styling upgrades, but the most notable change was under the hood in the shape of a new 3.8-liter engine with an output of 264 horsepower.
A host of other amenities await consumers looking for refinement. Available option packages add 17-inch chrome wheels, power adjustable pedals, leather seat trim and a premium Infinity sound system. Standard features include dual zone automatic temperature control, power front seats and power windows with heated outside mirrors.
