KIA Magentis (2009–2011)
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.
