With Kia being ranked the highest on the 2016 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study, Kia is having a great year. Adding to the excellent Kia lineup is the all-new and luxurious 2017 Kia Cadenza, coming this fall.
The 2017 Kia Sedan is a four-door large sedan in its second generation. The newest generation Cadenza model has been totally redesigned and Kia believes consumers will love it. Everything from the engine down to the smallest style details have been enhanced. Kia boasts that the the new Cadenza is bolder, stronger and more appealing.
Reviewers that have had the opportunity to test drive the Cadenza before it is released have had great things to say about the new model. Here’s a look at the all-new 2017 Kia Cadenza.

Engine + Performance
The 2017 Kia Cadenza is powered by a 3.3-liter V6 engine that is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The revised 3.3-liter engine pushes out 290 horses and 253 lb-ft of torque. Though powerful, the engine and transmission configuration provides the Cadenza with a fuel economy of 20 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
When building the new Cadenza model, Kia’s engineers aimed to create a new model that would have a reputation of performance and durability. To ensure their product would live up to that standard, Kia states, “running the V6 at full power and under full-load conditions for 41 consecutive days equates to more than 100,000 miles of real-world use.”
Exterior + Interior Design
Though the first-generation Cadenza was known for its high-end features, Kia wanted to make the all-new Cadenza model more outgoing and stylish than in the past. That is why there are a plethora of new exterior features for the 2017 model. Some of these new features include the option of two different grilles, LED “piano key” taillights, a wider and lower body, as well as chrome accents. All of these new features add an illuminating and sleek look to the sedan.
The interior features smooth surfaces and good quality cloth as the upholstery, but there is always the option of upgrading to the even more luxurious Nappa leather upholstery. The front end of the passenger cabin has a wraparound dash that flows across the front of the interior and into the doors.
Safety + Tech
The Cadenza of course comes with Kia’s most up-to-date UVO infotainment system. This system has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities which can be accessed on the eight-inch touchscreen proudly displayed on the dash. Satellite radio, AF/FM radio, CDs, or your own music via the USB port or Bluetooth connection can be heard perfectly on the 12-speaker Harmon Kardon system.
Kia’s engineers were able to equip the new Cadenza model with new safety equipment to provide the highest level of protection. One new and truly unique safety feature for this vehicle is a 360-degree surround view display of the video accessed on the dashboard touchscreen, allowing for protection from every angle.
The all-new 2017 Cadenza is made with advanced high strength steel and has features like adaptive cruise control, and electric control unit for steering, and selective damping shock absorbers. The safety of this vehicle is not yet rated because the vehicle hasn’t been released yet, but it is “safe” to say the rating will be high.
Reviews, Warranty + Pricing
If all of the mentioned features weren’t enough to sell you on the new Cadenza, than what the professionals have to say certainly will. John Wong with Road Show tested the all new Cadenza and has many good things to say. In his review he mentions is a quiet ride with many good features especially including the wireless phone charger.
