Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.5 reviews) Why overpay for a BMW or Mercedes, when you can have all the features and creature comforts for half the price? I've owned both, driven dozens more, and the Kia Cadenza is simply a superior vehicle, from a practicality standpoint. Interior comfort is top notch, road noise is non-existent, the technology in the car is simple and intuitive, gas mileage is adequate (averaging a shade over 25 mpg in mixed driving so far), steering/handling is spot on for a full size luxury sedan, ride height/visibility is excellent. The only gripes I have so far is that the front passenger seat is not a 6 way system, so you do sit quite low, and the stock 18 inch wheels are a bit difficult to clean. Minor gripes I know. Excellent vehicle Kia!!!

About the Kia Cadenza

Vehicle Summary

A full-size luxury sedan like the Kia Cadenza can be a practical choice for those who want to enjoy plenty of space for up to five passengers without stepping up size-wise to a crossover SUV. Offering a roomy cabin plus 16 cubic feet of trunk space in its 2017 model, the Cadenza first debuted to the global market in 2010 as a replacement for the Kia Opirus/Amanti model.

When it hit the United States market for the 2014 model year, the Cadenza offered such standard features as a brawny 3.3L V6 engine at 293 hp, leather upholstery, and a built-in navigation system on its base Premium trim. By the 2019 model year, a seven-inch touchscreen interface with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto smartphone integration, a rearview camera, parking sensors, and a blind-spot monitoring system also became standard. If you're looking for a large and well-appointed sedan for a growing family, the Cadenza might be right for you.

Reviews for Kia Cadenza

Overall Rating

4.7 out of 5 (19 reviews)

Luxury features at a much lower price. Great Value!

Car magazines have compared the Cadenza to BMW, Lexus and Mercedes because of the features offered. Mine was 11 months old when I bought it so I saved the first year depreciation. I have not found anything about the car that I do not like. It is a very impressive near luxury large car.

Pros

  • Interior Space: Has features comparable to Lexus at a lower price
  • Technology and Entertainment:
  • Value:

- Larry T, 2014 Kia Cadenza

Cadenza rivals Cadie, Lincoln, Lexus and Acura

Made solid. Great smooth quiet ride. Has all the bells and whistles of a luxury car including Navigation, Bluetooth, infinity surround sound, heated outside mirrors, heated seats. You name it this puppy has it. Made by KIA to rival the Lexus and Acura it was made solid with quality components. Because of the KIA brand it looses resale value fast so we picked it up for almost half price with very low mileage and an included 60k warranty. If you are not concerned about resale value and are looking for a car to own till it dies then this car is perfect. With the high quality we should have it a very long time. I used to own a Lincoln but don't miss it at all since getting this car. Our average milage is 26 combined which is good for luxury car

Pros

  • Ride and Handling: Smooth quiet ride. Love everything about this car.

- Henry Hernandez, 2014 Kia Cadenza

The Best Bang for Your Buck

Why overpay for a BMW or Mercedes, when you can have all the features and creature comforts for half the price? I've owned both, driven dozens more, and the Kia Cadenza is simply a superior vehicle, from a practicality standpoint. Interior comfort is top notch, road noise is non-existent, the technology in the car is simple and intuitive, gas mileage is adequate (averaging a shade over 25 mpg in mixed driving so far), steering/handling is spot on for a full size luxury sedan, ride height/visibility is excellent. The only gripes I have so far is that the front passenger seat is not a 6 way system, so you do sit quite low, and the stock 18 inch wheels are a bit difficult to clean. Minor gripes I know. Excellent vehicle Kia!!!

Pros

  • Interior Space: I’m a fairly tall guy (6’3’) and the interior is cavernous. Previously I’ve driven midsize sedans and coupes, and this is just a world of difference. Ample driver space, ample passenger space (even behind my seat in its driver position).
  • Ride and Handling: Its like floating on air, without the feeling of having no control. Steering is a bit light, but that's because I am coming from a sport coupe. Rough roads aren't felt, highway driving is a breeze
  • Technology and Entertainment: UVO system is simple and intuitive. If you are mildly technologically inclined you can use this system
