Korea’s Kia Corporation, commonly referred to as Kia, manufactures autos based in Seoul, South Korea. Kia calls it 2022. The Kia Spectra is a compact car produced by Kia Motors between 2000 and 2009. It succeeded the Kia Sephia and it was replaced by the Kia Forte (also known as Kia Cerato in some markets).


As standard, the Spectra has an inline-four 2.0-liter engine that produces 138 horsepower and 136 pound-feet of torque. At our test track, a Soul X-Line needed 8.3 seconds to hit 60 mph, but it doesn’t feel underpowered in normal driving.


The Kia Spectra has a reputation for reliability, and just basic maintenance can last well over 200,000 miles. Maintenance for the Spectra is straightforward, and because it does not have many complications as newer cars and some luxury brands, it can be repaired by most mechanics.


The Spectra received an extremely high crash test rating from the premier automotive safety group in the United States, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Kia’s compact earned a 4-star rating, out of a maximum 5-star rating, after its performance in frontal impacts after the car underwent its rigorous NCAP.
