KIA Magentis (2009–2011)

What's good

Thoroughly competent large saloon.

Unfashionably big steering wheel actually a nice touch.

Makes an excellent taxi.

EURO NCAP 4 star adult protection, 3 star child protection, 1 star pedestrian protection.

What to watch out for

Only 3 year, not 5 year or 7 year (unlimited mileage) warranty.

Belt-cam diesel engine.

Magentis seem to have extremely short model lives.
