Why the 2009 Kia Spectra?


The Spectra SX has a firm, sport-tuned suspension & tight steering that makes it responsive and fun to drive for an economy car.

Fuel economy

36.1 mpg at 70 - 75 mph between Jackson WY and Denver with only 1,000 miles on the odometer. 25 mpg so far in pure city driving with many short trips.

Safety & braking

The four wheel disc brakes stop very well BUT ABS should be standard. What were you thinking, KIA?

Color choices

I like the Copper red color.
