This edition of the Kia Spectra boasted ride and interior quietness among the best in the class. We also found the fit and finish impressive, particularly when considering the car's low price. However, because of its reluctant cornering, middling acceleration and so-so fuel economy, the Spectra ranks midpack in those areas. Braking performance was not a strength either. We also found it difficult to get a vehicle with antilock brakes. And, even with standard side- and head protection airbags, the Spectra got a Poor in the IIHS side-crash test.
