The 2008 Kia Amanti performs well in the insurance industry’s crash tests, but hasn’t been tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The 2008 Kia Amanti does receive the highest rating of "good" in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) frontal-offset and side-impact crash testing.
Cars.com reports that "four-wheel-disc antilock brakes are standard" for the Kia Amanti 2008, as are "front and rear side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags," while "an electronic stability system is optional." Edmunds adds "an optional 2008 Kia Amanti package bundles stability and traction control systems with a brake assist feature."
The Kia Amanti has little in the way of vision obstructions. According to Cars.com, "outward visibility is good, though very tall drivers may find that the inside rearview mirror is mounted low enough to interfere with their forward view." Otherwise, drivers enjoy a clear view of the road ahead.
