The new 2017 Kia Cadenza is a modern full-size sedan that offers everything you’d expect in a modern vehicle of its class. It comes equipped with a long warranty coverage, generous standard features, a strong V6 engine, easy-to-use electronics interface, and an upscale interior chock full of top-notch amenities. The Kia Cadenza 2017 release date should be expected this fall, at least according to latest industry pundits’ reports.
Akin to everything else in life, we expect much more from what was offered by their predecessors. Today, we demand more features and equipment without any comprise on the level of quality. The 2017 Kia Cadenza meets this qualities and even goes ahead to offer upscale feature that we’d normally find in luxury vehicles.
For a competitive price vantage offered for the base Cadenza, you get an even more sweetened deal that is graced by features such as a pleasant and quiet ride quality, a strong V6 engine, nifty safety features, and an easy-to-operate infotainment system. A long warranty coverage is also offered. Opting for the top-of-the-line models furthers the appealing attitude of the Cadenza as the vehicles come laden with state-of-the-art amenities.
Serious nitpicking has only yielded a couple of drawbacks which are quickly overshadowed by the dizzying amount of features available. The Cadenza lacks any fuel-efficient engine, an AWD option isn’t available, and the cargo volume is rather modest in conventional comparison. As such, it’d be judicious to check what else is out there before making a decision. Rivals include the “A” rated Toyota Avalon, Chrysler 300, Volkswagen Passat, Chevrolet Impala, and Hyundai Azera. Both the Hyundai Azera and the Chevrolet Impala have been redesigned for this year.
