2004 Kia Amanti

This entry-level luxury sedan debuted last year, and while it lacks the refinement of larger Japanese cars, it offers good interior room and comfort, with attractive styling. The Amanti comes powered by a 195-horsepower. 3.5-liter V-6 engine, and drives the front wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission that includes a manual-shift mode. Anti-lock brakes are standard, with electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist, traction control, and electronic stability control optional. Handling is a bit less precise than with the best vehicles in this class, though the car does deliver a cushy ride. The generous interior comes with both front and rear seat-mounted side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. Its many features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a power sunroof, eight-way power driver's seat with memory settings, and an Infinity six-channel, 270-watt sound system equipped with both a cassette deck and a six-disc in-dash CD changer. Few changes only are expected for 2005.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
