Model Highlights

Kia went back to the drawing board after killing off the Amanti luxury sedan in 2009. The Korean carmaker has learned a lot in the intervening years, and the Cadenza is proof-positive.

The front-wheel-drive Cadenza luxury sedan is an attractive, eye-catching entry in the segment. It is powered by an all-aluminum, direct-injection 293-horsepower V6, which is paired with a 6-speed Sportmatic automatic transmission. The result is an EPA estimated 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. The Cadenza is offered in three nicely appointed trim levels -- Base, Premium and Limited.

The base Cadenza rides on 18-inch alloy wheels, and exterior goodies include projector beam headlights, heated mirrors, push-button start, leather seating with power adjustable driver and passenger seats, dual-zone climate control, an Infinity Audio system, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and audio streaming, rear camera display, and an 8-inch color touchscreen with navigation.

Premium trim adds a panoramic sunroof, power-fold mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, rear parking sensors, and paddle shifters. Available on Premium trim is a Luxury Package, which adds HID adaptive headlights, a heated tilt/telescopic steering wheel, rear heated outboard seats, rear cross-traffic alert, a blindspot monitor, and Napa leather seating with driver's side ventilation and extendable seat cushion. A Techology Package, also available, offers adaptive cruise control, a lane departure warning and 19-inch wheels.

The top-of-the-line Cadenza Limited includes as standard all the features from the Premium's packages, plus LED fog lights and interior lighting, a surround-view camera, a premium headliner and a unique front grille.


Model News

For 2016, the Kia Cadenza has a new base trim. A panoramic sunroof is now standard on the Premium trim, and navigation is now standard across the model range.


Value Writeup

Kia is making a serious push to increase its profile in the U.S., and cars like the Cadenza provide a huge step in the right direction. The luxury sedan provides a comfortable, sporty ride while housing its occupants in supple leather and high-quality soft-touch materials. Added to its powerful 3.3L V6 are standard technology features like voice-command navigation and a premium sound system, which make the Cadenza a serious option in the segment, and against cars like the Toyota Avalon, Ford Taurus and Buick LaCrosse, the Cadenza more than holds its own.
