There are two versions of the 2004 Kia Spectra, as a mid-year 2004.5 replacement supersedes the regular 2004 offering. The 2004 Kia Spectra Base is the older incarnation of the economy front-wheel drive compact sedan, featuring a 1.8-liter, 124-hp DOHC I4 that comes standard with a 5-speed manual or an optional 4-speed automatic. Fuel economy hits around 22/32 mpg. The base model is not equipped with power features, but does have a CD player, intermittent wipers, a rear defrost, and various storage consoles. Air conditioning is optional on the 2004 Spectra Base.
Trunk space is around 10 cubic feet, and the dual front airbags help earn 4-star front impact crash ratings. Side impact ratings are average. There are few options available on this most affordable compact. Affordability and great fuel economy are the biggest selling points of the 2004 Spectra Base, but drivers complain of wind and engine noise and labored pickup.
This overview covers the Base trim only.
