Review of the 2004 Kia Spectra

  • The redesigned Spectra is a major leap ahead of its predecessor in terms of comfort, safety and value.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Long range warranty, redesigned version sports a spunky engine, well-finished interior and standard side-curtain airbags.

  • Cons

    Suspension a bit soft, weak performance on outgoing model, ABS optional only on most expensive models.

  • What's New for 2004

    Kia introduces a completely redesigned and much improved Spectra as a midyear 2004 model. However, both the old and new versions are available this year.
