Ten years after its debut in the American market with the Sephia compact sedan, Kia spices up its roots with an super sport wagon version of its highest volume model, the Spectra. In an attempt to revitalize and broaden the product line and continue its momentum upwards among the top-10 import brands in the United States, the Spectra5 sport wagon borrows its platform and powertrain from its cousin the Hyundai Elantra, but inherits most of its spiritual suspension DNA from the MazdaSpeed and Ford SVT performance tuner cars, having been designed by the same engineer. Spectra5's sport-tuned suspension rides on stiffer springs, firmer shocks, and larger anti-roll bars than the all-new-for-2004 Spectra sedan, and steps up to 16-inch alloy wheels and 205/50R16 Goodyears. Underhood is a spunky 138-horse/2.0-liter engine with continuously variable valve timing and multi-port fuel injection mated to a standard five-speed manual transmission or optional, electronically controlled four-speed automatic. Pricing will be announced when it goes on sale later this summer.
