The Spectra Wing 5-door hatchback launched Nov. 1st in the Korean market offers a sporty and practical alternative to the 4-door compact Spectra sedan first introduced in May of this year. Available in a base 1.5-liter edition and higher trim 1.8-liter edition, this newest member of the Kia family is the Winner of a New Generation of Kia hatchbacks and has been accordingly badged with the Wing acronym.
The bold and dynamic styling of the Spectra Wing will broaden the appeal of the Spectra brand and is sure to attract a wider range of buyers. Its smooth, muscular lines harmonize with its refined, sporty image.
For pure driving enjoyment, the Spectra Wing is equipped with a powerful, but environment-friendly Mi-Tech 1.5-liter engine, available in DOHC and SOHC versions. The 1.5-liter Si (SOHC) engine delivers a maximum fuel economy of 16.2km/liter while the Di, the DOHC variant reaches a top speed of 190km/h.
The Spectra Wing provides an impressively quiet ride thanks to extensive soundproofing measures that have hitherto been reserved exclusively for larger, more expensive sedans.
In matters of safety, the Spectra Wing is arguably the leader in the compact segment having earned the top five-star rating for frontal and 40% offset collision tests administered by the NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) in the United States.
