Value Writeup

Kia is making a serious push to increase its profile in the U.S., and cars like the Cadenza provide a huge step in the right direction. The all-new luxury sedan provides a comfortable, sporty ride while housing its occupants in supple leather and high-quality soft-touch materials. Added to its powerful 3.3L V6 are standard technology features like voice-command navigation and a premium sound system, which make the $35,100 Cadenza a serious option in the segment, and against cars like the Toyota Avalon, Ford Taurus, and Buick LaCrosse, the Cadenza more than holds its own.

Model Highlights

Kia went back to the drawing board after killing off the Amanti luxury sedan in 2009. The Korean carmaker has learned a lot in the intervening years, and the 2015 Cadenza is proof-positive.

The front-wheel-drive Cadenza luxury sedan is an attractive, eye-catching entry in the segment. It is powered by an all-aluminum, direct-injection 293-horsepower V6, which is paired with a 6-speed Sportmatic automatic transmission. The result is an EPA estimated 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. The Cadenza is offered in one nicely appointed trim level -- Premium -- and rides on standard 18-inch alloy wheels, with 4-wheel disc brakes and fully independent suspension. Standard exterior goodies include heated, power-fold mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, auto-leveling LED headlights and fog lights.

Inside is where the Cadenza shines. A 550-watt, 12-speaker premium audio system with USB outlets, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and audio streaming is standard, as is a rearview camera display with back-up warning system and a voice command navigation system with an 8-inch touchscreen display. Dual-zone automatic climate control, front power one-touch up/down windows, paddle shifters and steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls are all within easy reach. Wood accents and leather seating are standard as well, as is a 10-way adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support, with heated seating up front.

Three packages add even more luxury and convenience to the already-loaded Cadenza. The $3,000 Luxury Package includes a panoramic sunroof, HID adaptive headlights, Nappa leather seating with driver's side ventilation and extendable seat cushion, driver's side memory functions for seating and mirrors, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, a heated steering wheel and rear heated outboard seats. The $3,000 Technology Package adds 19-inch alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control to maintain safe following distances, blind spot detection and lane departure warning and more. Finally, the aptly named White Interior Package includes attractive white Nappa leather, wood grain accents and Chamude suede for the headliner, pillar trim, sun visors and rear package shelf.

Model News

The 2015 Kia Cadenza gets several enhancements to a couple of trim levels as well as a new grill and a couple of exterior styling accessories. Limited models get an overhead view camera which provides visibility in nearly every direction while parking, as well as LED lighting elements, some additional chrome trim and a new clock design. An 8-way power adjustable passenger seat is now standard on the Limited and buyers who order the technology package will now get Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
