The Kia Amanti shared a platform with the Hyundai XG350, but in many ways, the Amanti was the better of the two. The styling was much more mainstream, and it was even eerily similar to the Jaguar X-Type. The performance of the car was not bad considering its humble roots and the interior was luxurious for what you got (via New Car Test Drive).
The Amanti proved to be a decent seller in its first couple of years on the market. Like most Kia models from this era, the resale value is almost non-existent, which means you can snag one for a little bit of nothing. You can get a low mileage Amanti and you’ll feel great driving this car around. The comfortable interior and luxury-packed appointments made the Amanti a great value.
