First Impressions of a 2005 Kia Amanti
By MagMax on
2005 Kia Amanti 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
After a year of research, I took delivery of a pearl white 05 Amanti a week ago. Since then I've put about 300 miles on the clock. The car's got an amazingly comfortable ride, has a vast and beautifully detailed interior, and has plenty of power for normal circumstances. It has everything from heated rear seats to automatic wipers. I'm especially impressed by the silence inside the car, by the comfortable seats, and by how easy it was to get used to driving it. It has excellent visibility, a commanding driving position, a very tight turning circle, and is very easy to get into and out of. For less than a loaded Camry, it's an unbeatable bargain with lots more bells and whistles.
Comfortable ride; beautiful and roomy interior; wealth of standard equipment, 8 airbags, silence, HID lights, express up & down on all windows, stability control, excellent visibility in all directions
Could get better gas mileage although it's improved over the 94 model; should have Homelink available in Canada (it is in US models)
