Kia Spectra represents a laudable blend of...features
The 2008 Kia Spectra’s features list omits some newer features found on other compact cars, but the basics are available in its three trim levels.
According to Cars.com, "trim levels include the base LX, uplevel EX and sport-tuned SX." Standard equipment on all versions include an AM/FM/CD stereo with an auxiliary audio input jack.
Car and Driver says "rounding out the long list of standard features" on the Kia Spectra "are an adjustable steering wheel, a CD stereo with six speakers, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, and variable intermittent wipers." Audiophiles will be happy with the Cars.com report that the Kia Spectra's "audio system has an auxiliary jack for iPods or other MP3 players, and a six-CD changer is optional on the Spectra SX."
According to Cars.com, "extra features in the SX sedan include a perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearshift knob, aluminum pedals and metal-finish trim." ConsumerGuide reports that the 2008 Kia Spectra "EX adds air conditioning; fog lights; and power windows, door locks, and mirrors, the latter heated."
Remote start is also offered on the 2008 Kia Spectra, but neither a Bluetooth hands-free system nor satellite radio are available.
The 2008 Kia Spectra has the usual features and options, but cell phone talkers are left without a signal—as are satellite-radio fans.
