Is this your Forte?
Looks like it would be hell to install an aftermarket headunit/LCD without major dash reworking :/
it actually looks like they could easily make a double din for it...

I thought only poor people bought a kia? I know down here on the radio kia dealerships say "Do you have a job? Do You Have $99.00? We Can Put You In a New Kia Something." I changed jobs a couple years ago and with my first check I told my girlfriend I was gonna 6 kias. She laughed and told me to shut up...
Here is a broader pic of the interior/center stack
From the looks of it (in the picture, and having seen it in person), it would obviously require either a prefab kit, or some custom work to get in a double din LCD, however there should be room. I like the idea on keeping the CD slot and button.
On the Kia Brand note, the review suggest they have made up a lot of ground. Still inexpensive, but a solid competitor with this and previously, the Soul.
I dont think I would say solid competitor.
Toyota and Honda arent even in the same class as Kia. That's like comparing a Chihuly to a glass bowl from Walmart. Yeah they both work but you can't really compare them.
Oh come on malcom, don't shy away from a challenge. ;)
aesthetically, it has a good Wow effect, this car is the spectra´s replacement and i was thinking on one for myself, but...
from the quality point of view, you can feel the difference on materials, fabrication and other things, is lower to make it cheapier.
If you can feel it just by the interiors, what about cabling, paint, engine?
I love it´s look, but im keeping my spectra 2005 for a few years, i am very pleased with it.
Remember an 110hp average if you care about feeling nice and feeling fast.
looks like a twin of my wifes new Honda civic.
