Kia Magentis 2.0 Review: What lies beneath...

Kia reintroduces its large sedan to hopefully interest buyers who wants something bigger than the Cerato Forte. Under that handsome skin, what else can the Magentis deliver besides the value-for-money factor?

What we like:
pros
Updated exterior makes it more refreshing for buyers in this segment
pros
still delivers true value-for-money
pros
spacious cabin.
What we dislike:
cons
Questionable ride and handling
cons
brakes that need extra work
cons
reusing old signal and wiper stalks not a good idea.

The Magentis certainly looks fresh on the outside thanks to its Cerato Forte inspired nose and rear end. But those looking for Cerato Forte-like ride quality, refinement and contemporary feel in the way it drives will be disappointed by the Magentis.

On the positive side, the new model offers plenty of metal and kit for its modest price. In terms of value for money, the Magentis certainly delivers - but just not in other areas...

The quote for my car was fast, responsive and the highest. The transaction was fast and explanation was clear. The person who inspected my car was friendly and professional. It was a good experience with OneShift.

The transaction was very smooth from the minute I get on to their website trying to sell my car till the car ownership transferred and have the money paid by Pay Now into my account. It only takes less than 3 days. The person attending to me are very professional, Jon at the phone in their office and Sean Tan who came down to view and test the car. I am very happy to have decided to sell my car through "One Shift By Carousell"
