    Kia Amanti - Starting at around $25k

    I like to showcase how some of the other car companies are doing so that we can compare how our favorite company is doing.. For the price, this is a pretty nice car. Find out about it here and let me know what you think: http://www.kia.com/amanti/index-full.php

    Take a look at the Micro Site...

    Lincoln Town Car trunk lid & license plate enclosure, Mercedes headlights, Jaguar in-board parking lamps, Lincoln Town Car rear window curveature & Town Car roof. Chrysler Crosssfire Grille. Personally, I like the Hyundai GX350 better.

    The Amanti is a freaking cartoon. And terribly unoriginal. And the closely spelled "Amati" was the brand name Mazda was going to use for its own luxury brand.

    I also like the XG350 better. Its tasteful, affordable, and... well, tasteful.

    I don't see why everyone is hating on the car. I'd buy one. I mean you have dual climate control for the front and back, leather, wood *dunno if it is real or fake* interior, Infinity sound system, 2 set memory seats, moonroof, so I mean what isn't to like about this car?

    Re: Kia Amanti - Starting at around $25k

    After looking at the other pics it also has a 6 disk CD player! For $25k I'm all over that!! I think the main reaosn people are hating on the car is because its a "Kia" but hey you get a nice ass car like that plus a 100,000 mile warranty. So go to your local cadillac dealer and say you want dual climate control for the front and back, leather, wood interior, Infinity sound system, 2 set memory seats, moonroof, 6 disk cd changer and a 100,000 warranty for $25k. They'll laugh you right out of the place!

    I think because the XG350 has everything you mentioned, incl. the warrantee and the styling is original, unlike the Kia. Juat my guess, and probably the reason ~ ~

    Re: Kia Amanti - Starting at around $25k

    The styling isn't original - you're right - then again look at the Hyndai Sonata. It's a Jaguar. Regardless, the XG350 IS original-looking. But look at how well the Lexus LS does - and how original is that? Then you've got the big Acura (forget the model name). How many companies copy?

    I'm anxious to see what this new bigger Hyundai is going to be like. But - for someone who doesn't have a big budget, both these cars - the Amanti and XG350 offer some really amazing stuff... You CAN own a luxurious, quite, smooth and fairly powerful car with lots of options - even if you're not well-off...

    As time goes on more and more features are becoming standard at a much cheaper price. If you look at the "luxary" cars of the early 90's and there features and compare them to the cars coming out now. The features are the same. My thing is that I will NEVER buy a new car b/c of the amount of value you will lose in the first year or 2.

    It might be a nice car... it's still a little on the small side though, and there is still no prestige in owning a Kia. I don't like or hate the styling.. but it does still look like all the generic cars of today.

    In MI it's cheaper to insure a $40,000 Cad than a $20,000 KIA. The rates on those cars are sky high compared to a Cad.
    We have had a couple of shocked customers when they get their premium notice.
