Part of the reason the 2001 Kia Sephia can maintain its budget compact status is its lack of standard features. It has enough to get you from A to Z in relative comfort, but it's more about saving money than building status. The 2001 Kia Sephia STD is the base model, with a 1.8-liter, 125-hp I4 engine and choice of 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. It seats four, with plenty of headroom and a 10 cubic-foot trunk. Rear seats split-fold 60/40.
In terms of standard features, you have to pay extra for air conditioning, but the 2001 Sephia STD does come with dual front airbags, a cassette player, intermittent wipers, a rear defrost, and a clock. New this year is an internal emergency trunk release. Add-ons are few, but include wood interior trim and a rear spoiler for a sportier overall look. High 23/32 mpg and a low price tag are the biggest draws for 2001 Sephia STD owners, who also like the performance and roominess. There are numerous complaints about the brakes.

A step up from the base model, the 2001 Kia Sephia LS gives you a few more standard features and adds dual vanity mirrors and an internal emergency trunk release this year. Sitting on 14-inch wheels, the front-wheel drive compact economy sedan seats four, with split-folding rear seats that open onto a 10 cubic foot trunk. A 1.8-liter, 125-hp I4 engine sits under the hood, coupled with a 5-speed manual or optional 4-speed automatic.
The 2001 Sephia LS, in its final year, comes standard with full power accessories and power steering. Air conditioning is also included. Other upgrades from the base trim are a tilt steering wheel and tachometer. A cassette player is standard, but a CD changer system is available. Dual front airbags help earn it 4 stars in front impact crash tests. Options include ABS brakes, a rear spoiler, cruise control, remote entry, alloy wheels, and wood interior accents. People by the 2001 Sephia LS because it is cheap and gets good gas mileage. Though some wish it had more features, the Sephia serves its purpose well. The exterior and interior show wear and tear easily.
