About Kia Amanti

What if you could have all the luxury trappings of a $50,000 sedan in a stylish four-door costing about half as much? That's the promise Kia's Amanti offers, albeit without the high resale value and premium-sedan status of the higher-priced choices. For those unconcerned by such trivialities, the 2009 Kia Amanti delivers a smooth ride, decent handling, a huge rear seat and a competent V6 engine. Among the Amanti's long list of standard features are heated side mirrors, one-touch up/down power windows, an eight-way adjustable power driver's seat and a power sunroof. Compared to a Buick Lucerne, Lincoln MXZ and Chrysler 300, the Amanti appears a tempting alternative, and with its standard 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, concerns about long-term reliability are put aside.

"I recently purchased a 2006 Kia Amanti with 52 000 miles. My car was well taken car of and it drives and feel like a new car. Everyone who has seen it is very impressed with the car and as the owner I am delighted. I have been a Kia owner since 2001 when I bought a Kia Optima new. I traded it in on the Amanti. People have commented that it looks like anything from a Bently,Jag,Lincon anything but a Kia. It has everything anyone would want in a car and drives like a dream. When men open the hood (well one of them really gasped) they are blown away. I hope this love affair I am having with this car will last a long time as this is the last car I intend to buy. Loving it------------------------Lou"

"This car has been a jewel to own! I love the fact that a lot of people confuse the design of the car to a Mercedes! It is as close as you can get. Not only does it feel great to drive, it is classy looking and dependable. GO KIA!"

"Saw it. Loved it. Bought it. Two years old and a deal. 23 mpg - 110,000 miles. Only draw back is that Kia parts are slow to come in and costly compared to the US cars. I would buy another, if I could!!! The Equus is the new luxury through Hundai for $59,000 base - are they kidding???"
