Video Review: Does the 2014 Kia Cadenza justify its price?

By Trevor Dorchies on October 15, 2013 2:30 PM

Is the world ready for a Kia vehicle with a starting price tag just under $36,000? That's what our very own Micah Muzio was tasked with finding out in the latest video review. The Kia Cadenza, which was just launched in the United States this year, costs more than segment staples like the Toyota Avalon, Nissan Maxima, and Chrysler 300. However, it does slot just below an Acura TL or a Lexus ES, but that sounds like nothing but trouble for the Kia.

So how does the Cadenza separate itself from the pack while simultaneously justifying its price tag? Given that Kia stems from frugal roots in the United States, it's not out of the ordinary to struggle with where the Cadenza fits in the segment and in the automaker's portfolio in general. Check out the video above to see what conclusions Micah reached in this latest video.
