Kia Spectra information:

Introduction

The Kia Spectra model is offering of Korean automaker for the compact market car segment. It is available in the choice of two styles of body and levels of three trim. Its roomy and comfortable interior and sprightly engine of 2.0 ltr, the Kia Spectra is a wonderful companion to have for an everyday travel. Things in the transaction price normally less than the opposition and that power train warranty of 10-years and the look of Spectra like a stylish choice. In an evaluation test they held some years ago, the model Spectra positioned 3rd, coming at the back Mazda 3 and Honda Civic. Still, it holds true, because those wonderful cars remain your favorites in this type because of their edge in performance and refinement. And as that particular test, models redesigned of the Nissan Sentra and Mitsubishi Lancer has come out. People should even think about the lackluster security attributes of Spectra and not have modern handiness features. As like, the Kia Spectra car model will likely plea just to those economy hatchback and sedan shoppers on the limited budget. Persons purchase compact cars model as they are fuel-efficient and affordable, but the undisclosed thing to making a perfect econobox is to create it feel, look and drive the same a more luxurious car than it actually is. Kia not at all quite organized to perform that with its now-obsolete Spectra, though its substitute, the Forte is very much nearer to this perfect.

The genuine model of Kia Spectra sedan and hatchback were underpowered, unrefined and cheaply formulated. They unbreakable the image of cheap-car Americans held at the time about the Korean cars. Apart from the Spectra5 and Spectra sedan of second-generation 4-door hatchback equivalent shifted up the scale noticeably in conditions of substance, style, and alteration. Though, the Spectra model was still at the base of the packed economy sedan sector when it was douse to pasture later than the model year 2009. In case you only want wheels on the reasonable, Spectra model could please, but we would suggest anteing up for the more complicated rival.

Models and Features

The model Kia Spectra is accessible as the hatchback or sedan. The model sedan can be had in the best choice of 3 trim levels –EX, LX and SX. The just Spectra5 is accessible in the SX level trim. The basic model of LX is naked bones most people will likely move with the model EX that has full power accessories, air-conditioning, rear cup-holders and keyless entry. The SX sporty model appends a suspension tuned with sport alloy wheels of 16-inch and better quality of tires, fog-lights, and a back spoiler, steering wheel wrapped by leather material and knob shift, metal-finish inside accents, cruise control and seats with cloth sport. Major choices contain a CD changer of six-disc and a suitable sunroof.

Each model of Spectra is available with four-cylinder 2.0 ltr engine which makes 136 pound-feet and 138 horsepower of torque. A manual transmission of five-speed is usual, with an automatic four-speed transmission accessible on all types except the model of LX sedan.

Options and Packages

The very new Kia Spectra was traded from middle way throughout the model year 2004 throughout the year 2009. It was a solid sedan car model or a hatchback which could seat 4 comfortably and 5 in the pinch. Both styles of the body marked a 138-HP, four-cylinder 2.0 ltr powerful engine which offered forceful performance all around city but felt some winded throughout highway passing exercises. A normal manual five-speed transmission routed power to the front side wheels, and the automatic 4 speed system was optional.

The model sedan was presented in the levels of three trim EX, LX and SX. The hatchback Spectra5 was accessible in the one trim level SX. The LX was exposed-bones, but the model EX boasted a CD stereo, air-conditioning, full feature accessories as well as keyless entry. The model SX added advanced exterior and interior level of trim, with solid type of suspension tuning and bigger tires and wheels. The safety features of Spectra included normal front side seat-mounted side powerful airbags, side curtain full-length airbags and disc brakes on four-wheel. The features of antilock brakes were non-compulsory.

In assessment, they normally admired the Kia Spectra for its long list of normal equipment, easy to use design of cabin, honest build and good quality of materials, competent handling and smooth ride. Condemnations included the lack of pep of engine at the good speeds, unsatisfactory fuel economy of real-world, and navigation that was a tad shoddy. Those searching for 2nd generation Spectra model must note that the values are quite good, so best deals will possible be simple to find.

Under The Hood

The Kia Spectra model provides a simple and attractive layout of cabin with accessible controls and well build and quality of materials. The arrangement of seats is relaxed and the cup-holders and storage cubbies are liberal in size. The car model boasts the cargo area of 18.3 cubic foot; on the other hand trunk size of sedan model just gives space of 12.2 cubic feet.

The model Spectra offers a very enjoyable drive on the whole. The engine capacity of four-cylinder has adequate muscle for smart retort right off the series for receiving all around city. Unluckily, the noise of engine is somewhat intrusive at the better revs. The physical gearbox system is sufficient, but the automatic four-speed transmission doesn’t give the fastest of gear changes. The versions SX differentiate themselves with tighter controlling and solid suspensions even as still offering an overall quality of soft ride. Editors respected the Lotus-tuned suspension of Spectra, because it offered decent controlling and a soft, floaty experience of ride. Links those are weak included the tires, brakes and engine. Hastening was sluggish at the speeds on highway, along with a rough engine note and unimposing fuel economy. In the inner side, the Kia Spectra provided decent space for passengers, but the quality of materials and finish and fit were well under the average.
