This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
If you're looking for strong value in a compact package, the Kia Spectra should be on your shopping list. It represents one of the best values, with an impressive list of safety equipment for its modest price. The Spectra is a compact four-door sedan that can seat up to five passengers. Spectra is available in three trims: LX, EX and SX. A 138-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a standard five-speed manual transmission send power to the front wheels. A four-speed automatic transmission is optional. A fully independent strut front, multi-link rear suspension provides ride comfort and handling. Front airbags, seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags are standard on all trims. For 2009, the Kia Spectra receives standard front active headrests on all trims.
