About Kia Cadenza

The 2016 Kia Cadenza is more sedan than you’d expect at less than you’d expect to pay. Roomy, comfortable, attractive, with a competent and smooth powertrain, luxurious interior and impressively lengthy complement of features, the Cadenza defines the notion of a lot of automotive bang for your hard-earned bucks. With three trim levels (the base is new this year) and a strong 293-horsepower 3.3-liter V6 engine, the very well-equipped Cadenza starts around $35K and can go up from there. That puts it near Toyota Avalon territory, price-wise, but the Cadenza is more engaging to drive, lacks nothing in feature content and should be seriously considered by anyone shopping for a luxurious, comfortable and very well-equipped sedan at an attractive price.

"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."

"As far as cars go I have owned a Cadillac, Fords, Honda, Lexus, Dodge, and just recently at 2012 Lincoln MKS. None of these cars that I have mentioned come close to my Kia Cadenza except maybe the Cadillac STS. The style of my Cadenza in 2014 was unmatched until now! In the past year it seems like every and all the cars have stolen Kia's design! The speed the performance the ergonomics are fabulous. I had an unfortunate accident 14 years ago and my back was broken, and this Kia Cadenza is the only vehicle I have been able to sit in for more than 35 minutes without my back hurting including my conversion van. Believe me, the comfort is there along with the quality of this car. My $53,000 Lincoln was a piece of junk compared to this. Thank you Kia. Rick Vuk"

"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."
