Launched in 2003 Kia Amanti was the first full size sedan produced by KIA Motors of Korea. It was also marketed as Kia Opirus in many countries. Considered as the flagship vehicle of KIA Motors, this car was available in only one trim of sedan. It has borrowed some of its components from Hyundai XG including the engine and drivetrain. This car was added with even more upgrades later on. The Toyota Avalon, Buick LeSabre and Ford Taurus were among its competitors.



The engine Hyundai used for the Kia Amanti has gotten many upgrades. Originally it was fitted with a Sigma 3.5 liter V6 engine which was used till 2006 when it was replaced with a Lambda II V6 motor. Used Amanti engines are available in case you need to replace a defective motor. In 2010 this engine was again replaced by a 3.3 liter engine. There was also an optional 2.7 liter engine for the 2010 model year. These cars used either 5 or 6 speed automatic transmission.

In a study made in 2005 by J. D. Power Associates, KIA Amanti was named the “Most Appealing Premium Midsized Car”. In 2007 it passed as one of the safest cars. By December 2010 the Amanti was discontinued. KIA Motors produced two models to replace Amanti, one was KIA Cadenza. The other was KIA K9.
