2015 Kia Cadenza

This year, Kia makes the Cadenza Limited's Technology package and panoramic sunroof available on Premium models, and makes things like an 8-way power driver's seat standard equipment. Limited models get a new grille design, and also get standard Flex Steer and surround-view monitor.

About Kia Cadenza

The 2015 Kia Cadenza rolls into its second model year with largely the same mix of features, driving pleasure, style, and value that were the sedan's hallmarks when it was introduced last year. Its price starts around $36,000, and you can go for premium-level amenities including Nappa leather and a panoramic sunroof when you upgrade to the Limited model, which starts at about $45,000. Keep in mind that's not too far off from full-size competitors like the Toyota Avalon and Hyundai Azera, neither of which are as fun to drive. The Chevrolet Impala comes closest to beating the Cadenza at its own game in looks and features, but the Cadenza still merits strong consideration for anybody looking for a comfortable and luxurious full-size sedan.

"Leased a Cadenza premium for my wife at the beginning of October and we both couldn't be more satisfied. A lot of people frown down on the "KIA" badge, never even knowing what the total experience is like. It drives quiet, has really good power and conveniences, and is getting over 22 MPG combined, which should improve. The trunk is large, seating comfort is very good, and the features it comes with as standard are not to be ignored; like the 550 watt 12-speaker Infinity sound system. We got a 24-month lease and are already waiting for the next generation to come out. The 2013 Volkswagen CC that we traded is just a memory. We're looking for a bunch of enjoyable and safe miles in this limousine-like motorcar."

"I bought the 2014 Cadenza new in July 2013. It now has 23,000 miles on it. Car drives excellent. Plenty of power and handles like a charm. Stays flat when cornering. Fuel economy as high as 32 on the highway according to the computer. My biggest complaint is the passenger seat sits way to low and there is not an up-down adjustment. The drivers headrest keeps creeping up on me."

"I have a 2015 Cadenza SX Limited. This car has a great fit and finish. The Cadenza is very comfortable and quiet and rivals that of the other luxury cars I have owned. Acceleration is impressive. Safety and convenience features like the surround camera make driving the Cadenza a delight. I'm especially surprised by the gas mileage, averaging 23-24 mpg in local driving. The perforated leather seats have good support and long trips do not result in seat fatigue. Long road trips are enjoyable. The power fold-in mirrors make entering tight parking spaces and garages much easier. Handling is well controlled and sporty. The Cadenza represent a good value and provides more comfort and luxury than expected of a car with this MSRP. The K900 was my other choice but it was a bit too large and I didn't need that amount of power."
