2007 Kia Spectra Spectra5 SX 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I love my Kia Spectra5! The Kia is sporty to drive and responsive in its handling. No complaints. The 5 speed manual is smooth, and the engine is surprisingly powerful. I like that the look is understated and not so in your face. It grows on you after while and I look forward getting in the car and drive to my next destination. Fit and finish and attention to detail is first rate. Very roomy for a car this size. Lots of storage and handy appointments, even "secret" compartments. Last but not least is value for money. This car costs considerably less than similarly appointed cars, like the Mazda3, Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra, VW Golf. Highly recommended! 5 Stars *****. :)

Best Features

Impossible to leave the headlights on, accidentally. When you open the driver side door all head lights and interior lights shut off automatically. Other manufacturers may have this too, but this is the first time I took note of that feature. Great front speakers! (See also improvements). Storage!

Worst Features

The clutch is a bit sensitive and takes getting used to, especially in first gear. Terrible rear speakers! Not a good match with the superb front end speakers. Placement of the cruise control. My knee bumps it a lot.
