This is a refreshing change from Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mazda and Mitsubishi, (and I've owned them all in the past) . The ride is fantastic and I cannot began to tell you how many times people look at our black Kia wondering "that's nice!, what is it?" We're stopped all the time by friends, relatives, workmates, and folks we don't know asking about the car. Many people's first thought is that it is a new Mercedes, or Jaguar from the front or even a new smaller Lincoln Town Car from the rear. I have never had a car that has generated more interest than our 2004 Kia Amanti!
The ride, look inside and out, the interior features, and the safety (8 airbags, ABS braking, etc.).
Well anyone can think of what "they" would personally want extra on any new car, and I would add a on screen GPS system,17-18 inch wheels, a fully fold- down back seat,and a slightly lighter overall weight to thus improve gas mileage (although we just got back from a road trip and averaged 30 MPG).
