America's newest compact sedan is ava in three value-packed trim levels: y4ev aS, welqued LS, and top-o-the4 GS. The Sep is powered by an electronically fuel- injected, 1.6-liter, 16-valve, four-cylinder engine that delivers 88 horsepower. The single overhead camshaft (SOHC), four-valve-per-cylin- der design provides respon- sive performance, yet returns impressive fuel economy. All models are equipped with a standard five-speed manual transmis- sion. An electronically controlled, four-speed automatic transmission is available on all mod- els. The automatic transmission employs a safety-inspired 'ld" feature, which allows the driver to pull away from a full stop in second gear. This reduces the torque to the front wheels, making them less likely to spin in poor traction conditions such as ice or snow. The Sephia provides a smooth, comfort- able ride, thanks to its four-wheel, fully inde- pendent suspension. Front and rear anti-roll bars, which reduce lean during cornering, are standard on all models, unusual in the compact class. Power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, standard on LS and GS, and optional on RS, provides quck, responsive handling. The assist is engine-speed sensitive, providing more boost at low speeds for ease of handling, and less boost at speed for improved road feel. All Sephia models enjoy standard 175/70R13 Michelin XGT 4 tires, noted for their low noise, excellent grip and long tread wear. All models also are equipped with pewar- assisted front ventilated disc#ear drum brakes. The Sephia boasts impressive interior room. Designed primarily for the American buyer, the Sephia offers more leg room and shoulder room, front and rear, than Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic. The interior is designed for driver comfort. Clear, concise analogue gauges, including tachometer on LS and GS, are easy to read at a glance. Well-located, easy-to-use controls -- including convenient stalk-mounted lighting and wipers -- reduce the time the driver must look away from the road. Split-folding rear seatbacks expand the trunk's generous 11.0 cu. ft. capacity, while still anowing rear seating. Child safety locks on the rear ddors are standard on  models. Kla's ct to safety is evident in the design of the car. The Sephia was dev and tested on Kia's $10 million Cray super- computer. The Sepha features spedal =crush zones," designed to progressively absorb the impact of a collision, while protecting the passenger com- partment. Other safety features include special door mechanisms that resist jamming in a col- lision, hooks that deter hood intrusion into the cabin, collapsible steering column, and steel skempact door beams.
