Introducing the redesigned Kia Cadenza, the sedan that demands attention and surpasses every expectation. After extensive testing from Motor Trend, the Cadenza’s performance proves to be unparalleled, including an eight-speed transmission and a 290 hp, 3.3L V6 engine. With a freshly-sculpted grille, this executive sedan features an aerodynamic shape so sleek that Motor Trend called the Cadenza “the best-looking car in its class.”
The Cadenza’s elegant design flourishes engage the senses. From the smooth leather interior to the grand panoramic views through the available sunroof, this sedan also combines the dynamic sounds of the available Harman/Kardon® QuantumLogic™ audio system. These luxury features blend together as part of the Cadenza’s stylish and comfortable interior cabin. Additionally, the available LED headlights include High-Beam Assist which automatically dims the lights when oncoming traffic is detected then re-engages the high beams after the traffic passes.
Making its Kia debut is the all-new eight-speed Sportmatic® transmission which delivers outstanding fuel economy, responsive power, and seamless shifting from a 3.3L Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) V6 engine pumping out 290 horsepower. The power meets the road with a newly refined four-wheel independent suspension on top of a frame built from 53% advanced steel to provide a smooth, athletic ride.
The 2019 Kia Cadenza is built with safety features that work automatically when you need them, providing you with complete control in the harshest road conditions and emergency situations. With an advanced airbags system that features innovative sensors plus three-point seat belts for over-the-lap and shoulder safety, it’s so no surprise that the Cadenza has a track record of award-winning safety. When equipped with optional front crash prevention and LED headlights, the Kia Cadenza is a 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick.
