What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For Comfortable, cheap to buy and well kitted out

Against Cabin quality could be better; the "wrong" badge

Verdict A low-cost family saloon. Snobs need not apply

Go for… 2.0-litre LX

Avoid… 2.5 V6

Kia Magentis Saloon
  • 1. The cabin design looks dated, but it’s well equipped, solidly screwed together and reasonably roomy
  • 2. The electric gadgets can be pricey if they go wrong – especially the air-con – so check they all work properly
  • 3. The 2.0-litre model makes most economic sense. It’s gentle on fuel, insurance and servicing
  • 4. You can fit two adults comfortably in the back, although three may find it a bit of a squeeze
  • 5. The boot is large and the rear bench splits and folds to extend it still further
