The Kia Cadenza full-size sedan offers a spacious cabin and quiet ride for less than $35,000. The Kia Cadenza has the largest front seat space of any sedan in its class and is well-equipped with technology, including rear parking sensors and Apple CarPlay to make your time behind the wheel more enjoyable. The Cadenza’s soft leather seats and beautiful wood trim wrap the interior. Kia’s extensive warranty coverage will give drivers additional security.
The Kia Cadenza steers like a boat on the water, unlike other full-size luxury sedans. The car has a tight handling and a suspension that absorbs most bumps. Because of the low road noise, even long freeway trips are enjoyable because the interior is well-insulated.
With a wide power band, the engine has plenty of power to handle hill climbs or freeway merging. Although the transmission shifts smoothly, the upshifts are slow even when the accelerator is pressed to the floor. This can be annoying at times. The Kia Cadenza is a well-constructed car that offers a luxurious driving experience, without the high price.

According to the EPA, fuel economy for the Cadenza is 19 mpg in a city, 28 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg when combined. The fuel tank can hold 18.5 gallons.
Cadenza’s interior has a modern, clean design. The touchscreen and its buttons on the screen are responsible for a large part of the Cadenza’s lack of buttons. The cabin has a lovely feel thanks to the strategically placed wood-grain and metal trim pieces. The interior color of the car can be chosen by buyers from either beige or black. The cabin is luxuriously upholstered with premium materials.
Large buttons on the screen are easy to use when driving. This makes it simple to change audio and navigation systems. It is also much easier to use than any other navigation system.
The driver and passenger are seated in plush, spacious seats with over 45 inches of legroom. There are plenty of adjustment options for the seat and steering wheel to make it comfortable for all sizes. Rear seats offer comfortable seating and almost 37 inches of legroom. The panoramic sunroof can encroach on vehicle headroom by a few inches. This can cause tight squeezes for taller passengers.
