Product Overview

Kia Opirus / Amanti (code GH) is an executive sedan in production from 2003 to 2012. It was available with a range of V6 engines that displaced 3.0 to 3.8 liters.
Slotted to sit atop Kia's lineup, the Opirus came exclusively with naturally-aspirated petrol V6 powertrains mated to automatic transmissions. Before 2010, the vehicle used a 5-speed auto, which was replaced by a 6-speed unit after the facelift. Many engine options also received small bumps in output along the way.
A stand-out feature of the Opirus is the used of double-wishbone + multi-link suspension setup, which aids ride quality and handling.
