The Spectra is a compact four-door sedan that can seat up to five passengers. Spectra is available in three trims: LX, EX and SX. A 138-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a standard five-speed manual transmission send power to the front wheels. A four-speed automatic transmission is optional. A fully independent strut front, multi-link rear suspension provides ride comfort and handling. Front airbags, seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags are standard on all trims. For 2009, the Kia Spectra receives standard front active headrests on all trims.
