    Default Analyze Dis!!! Kia Spectra Review - Hot or Not

    Neo aka Speed Bullet,"Waddup y'all" . Ok ppl lets get straight 2 the point. This Post is all about the Kia Spectra. Do you think its good enough for street racing ?. I think it is n here iz y. Analyze Dis!!! Kia Spectra Review - Hot or Not -490520

    It is a 4 Dr Lift back Sedan. And the size dimensionz place it in the same class as the Civic-Corolla Range. The engine is a 1500cc Dohc(Double Over Head Camz) EFi 4Cylinder, producing a little less than 115 bhp. The RPM range I think iz 6780 RPMs. The Max Speed in Each gear(dat i tried myself) is 50km 1st gear- 95km 2nd gear - 128km 3rd gear - 145 4th gear and the top speed of 195 kms.

    The top Spec comes with alloy wheelz, Spoiler, fog lamps, CD playa and power windowz. (Surround sound tweeters are standard-Tweeters included) But it is priced in the same range as Honda Citiez and Toyota Vitz. Which i think makes it a Good Buy if your choosing between a Honda City, Toyota Vitz, Toyota Platz and Kia Spectra. It standz out in its class. I think alot of people just dont have a taste 4 it. And personally id like to be seen racing in a slim spacy Spectra and not those Fat n Tall lookin High 'shoe' like City or platz....Spectra even apeared on 'High Octane' show on Tv.

    I agree it doesnt have a good product image but if more Spectra after market parts are sold, it will definitly stand out. Id love to see a Spectra beat a Corolla or Civic( I aint against y'all). Its an exellent Ride given da right set of Mindz, Gadgetz and toolz to Mod. C, mon Spectra fanz back me up. And if anyone has Pics of a modified Spectra plz , Dis is thge place to post'em.

    Spectra aswell as being cheapest in its class also has the cheapest spare parts and insurance. Although i agree its no match for a VTec. Still I pity dose Ricerz ppl n feel sad 4 dem who show off on ugly Cities(I think dere higher dan the new Vitara) n Vitz and Platz n all otha ugly same price cars. When instead dey could b drivin Da Spectra. Its just dat ppl need 2 change dere approach n attitude 2wardz Spectraz. Well, i think sum 1 has 2 be 2 blame 4 its Cheap Plastic Image. Maybe when it came out, 2 many Uncles (with Big noses and magnifying lens thick glasses n Hair if dey hav any, coloured Mehndi) Bought 2 many Spectraz for dere parentz(probably 70+). N every who drove it den gave a bad name n image. Dese might be da kind of ppl who wud get speed tickets 4 goin 2 slow in the fast lane like 30km in the fifth gear.

    Or maybe its just dat Kia has a sh**y image cuz all otha Kia cars in Pak are ugly n Sh**. Maybe if it was introduced in Pak with a different badge(yeah like Ferarri lolz.. I mean Honda or Toyota or even Suzuki )it would be a hit(rather dat sh*t).

    Some illegal street racing stunts on a spectra

    It goes to 180 easily. give it a try and the top end pull will surprise you. Many Honda and Toyota fans have expereinced the same and they were quiet and reluctant to comment after this.

    A Honda Exi caught during the same race and this picture is taken at 185 Km/hr

    amazing race where civic isnt a part of the race itself wonder what if that civic was "actually" racing....
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    @Lotus


    About your "Actual" racing remark

    The guy driving the civic works with me in my office in same department. We were trailing each before Kalar Kahaar and once salt range finished, both of us pushed it. u can see the civic (In the last lane) at front and then parallel to spectra. It was a full fledge race and we both got speeding tickets as well I turned for Faisalabad and he went to lahore. It was fun and we screwed many other rollas during our own party

    Exi is not that big a deal compared to spectra. VTi yes is powerfull and it can give some good lead on these speeds but please dont tell me that an Exi can outrun a spectra, Not possible. Tried and tested many times.

    I was accompanied with tsah15 and NadeemIqbal and Nadeem did this photography.

    btw, i am convinced for one thing...spectra may out run exi in race but cant out perform exi with suspension, look at the calm jesture of that driver whereas u holding steering as if u r driving rocket j/k

    its a mistake to be calm at 185 Km/Hr

    One should be alert and attentive

    The guy is actualy enjoying the situation and he still quotes this incident among colleagues and he admits that he was not able to outrun a spectra on Motorway

    Also considering the quality of pictures taken. I dont think suspension or handling was an issue in spectra. tsah15 was sitting like this
