Comfort & Quality

The 2008 Kia Amanti offers its passengers a roomy cabin with well-fitted seats and a good sense of fit and finish.

Edmunds reports that the "Kia Amanti's roomy cabin seats five and pampers its occupants with plenty of room." Automotive.com is succinct: "the interior is quiet and roomy." ConsumerGuide attests that the Kia Amanti "offers ample headroom and legroom, even for taller adults" with "generously sized seats...nicely contoured and especially comfortable." Edmunds does point out that the Amanti has “a bit less rear hip- and legroom than you’ll find in slightly larger sedans like the Toyota Avalon.”

The 2008 Kia Amanti is a comfortable and quiet ride.

Storage space is plentiful; according to Cars.com, "Interior volume measures 106 cubic feet, competitive with the Avalon and Impala." ConsumerGuide notes that the 2008 Kia Amanti's "big trunk is usefully shaped and has a large opening. In-cabin storage includes a map pocket in each door, a two-level console bin, and a good-sized glovebox."

Materials and assembly are definitely above par as well. Automotive.com notes the Kia Amanti 2008 offers "luxurious interior materials," while ConsumerGuide is of the opinion that "though not quite to premium-car standards, 2008 Kia Amanti's interior is nicely finished with soft, high quality materials."

Noise levels are acceptable. ConsumerGuide reports that "the cabin is impressively hushed with very little wind or road noise," and that "the V6 engine produces a refined muted growl when pushed but is otherwise nearly silent." Edmunds adds "the Amanti is tuned to provide a smooth, quiet ride with maximum isolation from the road."
