Kia continues to step up its game, and the Cadenza is yet more evidence that it deserves to be seriously considered by savvy shoppers. The only engine available is a 293-hp 3.3-liter V-6, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel drive. While the Cadenza may not be a rocket, it does accelerate to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds. Kia hasn’t made performance a priority for the Cadenza, but it’s still sufficient, and the upscale interior appointments make it a very comfortable car.
The Kia Cadenza plays a role in this mission, although unlike its more overtly luxurious sibling, it’s more of a toe in the water; an attempt to prepare us mentally for more-expensive Kias to come.
As such, everything about the Cadenza feels carefully crafted to impress while taming expectations. Its luxurious tidings and big footprint make it an enticing alternative to smaller—but similarly priced—sedans such as the Acura TL and Lexus ES350. The Cadenza technically replaces the milquetoast Amanti , but banish any memory you might have of that car, which Kia mercifully yanked from dealerships three years ago. Starting with styling that mixes elements from the latest Forte sedan, the Optima, and the K9, the Cadenza is much, much better. From some angles it looks derivative—a Volkswagen Passat-ified Suzuki Kizashi comes to mind—but overall, the impression is upscale and even slightly sporty. Even though it’s basically a bigger Optima underneath, the Cadenza looks like its own luxury animal. Like the Toyota Avalon and Camry, the two Kias share a platform, although the Cadenza’s front subframe is unique, as is its body structure aft of the rear seat. (The new subframe accommodates the V-6—the Optima lineup is four cylinder only.) Dimensional differences are relatively minor, with the Cadenza’s wheelbase spanning two more inches, overall length an additional 5.2 inches, width another 0.7 inch, and height another 0.8 inch.
