The 2008 Kia Amanti.

Luxurious, stylish and loaded with excitement, the redesigned Amanti is the ultimate premium midsize sedan for those seeking more inspiration behind the wheel.

A remarkably spacious interior lets you travel in total comfort, while you enjoy such high-end standard features as dual-zone automatic temperature control and one-touch automatic power windows or available sumptuous heated leather seats and an Infinity® sound system.

An all-new, more powerful 3.8-liter, 264-horsepower V6 engine delivers an exceptional combination of power and fuel efficiency.

If that's not enough, the Amanti was awarded the highest possible rating in side impact crash tests from the International Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and comes with an unbeatable 10-year/100,000-mile warranty. All this adds up to a truly outstanding premium midsize sedan at an affordable price.
