The 2007 Kia Amanti received a “Good” – the highest possible rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in a side impact crash test for large luxury cars. The results show a range of performance in how well large cars are designed to protect people in serious side impact crashes.

        “It comes as no surprise to learn how well Amanti did when compared to higher priced vehicles in this test,” said Len Hunt, executive vice president and COO of Kia Motors America. “We are pleased that the IIHS test of the 2007 Amanti validates Kia’s philosophy of providing high-value and safe vehicles for our customers.”

        The Amanti has more standard air bags (eight) than any other vehicle in its segment, including dual front advanced air bags, front and rear seat-mounted side air bags and full-length side curtain air bags.

        Other standard safety features include tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), four anti-pinch windows – which sense obstructions and automatically roll down – height-adjustable front seatbelts with pretensioners and force limiters, three-point seatbelts for all five seating positions, lower anchors and tethers for children (LATCH), side impact door beams and front and rear crumple zones.
