The elegant, stylish exterior might be the first thing that catches your eye when you see the 2019 Kia Cadenza, but it's when you get inside that you realize what really sets this large sedan apart. Its cabin is filled with convenient amenities that give a sense of refinement and luxury, and it's spacious enough for five adults to ride in comfort. For instance, it comes with standard leather-trimmed upholstery, as well as power-adjustable heated front seats and dual-zone automatic air conditioning. In terms of space, front passengers get 40.2 inches of headroom and 45.5 inches of legroom, with second-row headroom and legroom measuring 37.9 inches and 37.2 inches, respectively.
Although the 2019 Kia Cadenza is not a performance-oriented vehicle, it's equipped with a capable engine that's perfect for commuting. All trims come with the standard turbocharged 3.3L V6 engine that generates 290 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque, and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard on all models. With this engine, the 2019 Kia Cadenza can go from zero to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds, according to the manufacturer, and reach a top speed of 120 mph.
The elegant and comfortable cabin of the 2019 Kia Cadenza is perfectly complemented by the attractive and stylish exterior design. Reminiscent of some of the more high-end, luxury sedans, the Cadenza's exterior stands out and catches your eye immediately with a couple of unique details and elegant lines throughout. Some of the most striking features include the big 18-inch alloy wheels, along with the chrome accents in various places, and the Z-shaped lightning bolt LED running lights. The concave grille rounds out the beautiful look of the 2019 Kia Cadenza, making for a complete package that includes great performance and a nice interior.
In addition to performance and comfort, the 2019 Kia Cadenza has sleek dimensions but that doesn't mean you're left without usable space. It has 16 cu-ft of trunk space, which is enough to fit a couple of suitcases or several shopping or grocery bags, sporting equipment, gardening tools, or other large and bulky items. On top of that, there are plenty of small-item storage bins and cubbies inside the cabin, which come in handy, especially during work commutes or long-distance road trips. This makes the 2019 Kia Cadenza a great choice for families, or if you need a sleek profile with decent amounts of space for work or leisure.
If technology is among your priorities when it comes to choosing your next car, the 2019 Kia Cadenza should meet most of your needs and expectations. It's equipped with lots of standard features in the entertainment and connectivity department, offering a pleasant ride experience for all passengers. For soundtracked rides, the infotainment system has a seven-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration as standard. Additionally, base model equipment includes Bluetooth® connectivity, one USB port, an eight-speaker sound system, voice recognition, and satellite radio.
On top of the infotainment features, the 2019 Kia Cadenza comes with a couple of extremely useful driver-assist systems. They include rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, and a rear cross-traffic alert system. If you opt for any of the higher trim levels, such as the Technology or the Limited, you will get many more additional features, such as adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, driver attention monitoring, and automatic emergency braking, among others.
