2008 Kia Spectra Spectra5 SX 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


The Spectra5 is a very fun spunky car that can't quite out-accelerate other like makes, at higher speeds it dominates. Turning and cornering is exceptional, sound system is lacking in quality, but replacing the door speakers makes a world of difference. Controls are very functional and convenient, construction is solid. After market accessories are limited, but that's to be expected with a new vehicle. Not fond of the fact that the glovebox doesn't lock. When rear seats are folded down though, all kinds of rear space. I can't say enough good things about this car.

Best Features

Price, suspension, turning, high quality stock tires, decent acceleration, awesome top speeds, easily modified stereo (rear speakers excluded).

Worst Features

Make rear speakers more accessible, use a different plastic on interior body panels that doesn't scuff as easily, more durable carpet especially in the trunk area.
