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