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.
Interior space and comfort; tremendous value; eight standard air bags.
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.
