The Kia Opirus was a full-size car manufactured and marketed by Kia Motors that was launched in April 2003 — and was marketed globally under various nameplates, prominently as the Amanti. It was considered to be Kia's flagship vehicle.
In the U.S., the Amanti was recognized as the "Most Appealing Premium Midsize Car" by J.D. Power and Associates' 2005 Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout Study.
The 2007 Amanti outscored several luxury cars in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) side-impact crash testing, to earn the highest rating of Good. As of December 17, 2010, the Kia website no longer listed the Amanti as a production model.
