When I went to the Kia dealer a few weeks ago to buy a car I was going there to get a fully loaded Spectra5 2005. We tried one but my wife didn't like it all that much, she really wanted a Magentis/Optima. I really liked the Magentis too. The price for both were about the same, the Magentis had a few less options from a fully loaded Spectra. Spectra had 16 inch, 4 wheel disk brake, ABS, more air bags and MP3 player that my Magentis didn't have. But I still choose the Magentis over the Spectra5 because I like bigger cars, I'm not used to smaller cars. After buying this car I realised it's the last year for this platform and that in 2006 it will be an all new model. So this makes this car already almost outdated. On the other hand the Spectra 2005 is all new this year so it should stay the same for a few years. I know a few of you probably drove bought or own both, so I was wondering what are your thoughts on what car is better for, handling, comfort, space, performance, MPG, etc... Maybe this could be a good post for ppl on the market wanting to buy one or the other.
