Kia Cadenza: Impossible to Ignore
The Kia Cadenza, a luxury sedan was launched in 2010 to replace the Amanti. Designed by Peter Schreyer, the Cadenza, which fuses luxury, performance and technology, was first sold in the U.S. in 2014. Standard features include a V6 engine, leather seats, Bluetooth, Kia’s UVO infotainment system with navigation and 8-inch touch screen, a 12-speaker Infinity surround-sound stereo system, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start and alloy wheels. Option packages offer upgrades such as Nappa leather seats, blind spot monitoring system, lane departure warning system and water repellent glass.
“The Kia Cadenza is a full-size, near-luxury four-door that’s packed to the brim with convenience and technology features. For those seeking a comfortable and well-equipped cruiser, the Cadenza represents a good choice and a strong value.” — Left Lane News
Although Cadenza has not reached the popularity of Kia’s bestselling Optima or the notoriety of the K900, it has impressed both automotive experts and drivers with its high quality interior, comfortable drive and standard features. It has won numerous awards including:
• International Car of the Year Award, Road & Travel Magazine
• IIHS Top Safety Pick
• AutoPacific IDEAL Vehicle Award, Best in Class Vehicle Satisfaction, Large Car
• U.S. News Best Cars, #6 of Affordable Large Cars
Compared to its competitors the Toyota Avalon XLE, Buick Lacrosse Premium and Acura TLX 9-SPD AT, Cadenza offers great value for the money. The soon to be released 2016 model adds an entry level model lowering the cost of entry even further. In addition, a panoramic sunroof has been added to the standard feature list for the Premium level, while reducing the MSRP. Other improvements include, steering wheel mounted paddle shifters, UVO eServices with voice command, a 550-watt Infinity audio system, rain-sensing wipers and a back-up warning system.
Only a handful of 2015 Cadenzas remain and Kia Country is offering a $10,000 Guaranteed Trade on select models during the month of November. Cadenza starts at an affordable MRSP of $34,900. With special dealer and manufacturer incentives, you can expect to drive away in this luxury sedan for under $30,000.
“The upscale V6-powered 2015 Kia Cadenza isn’t just nice ‘for a Kia.’ It’s one of the best large, front-wheel-drive sedans and features restrained styling, smooth driving dynamics and many desirable components.” –AutoTrader
