The Kia Cadenza is mid-sized sedan designed with comfort in mind. For the 2017 model year, the all-new Kia Cadenza was completely redesigned and it has luxury features and a comfortable cabin, while looking a bit sporty. From the engine to the interior, there are a variety of new features on the all-new 2017 Cadenza.
Perhaps the most noticeable change on the all-new 2017 Kia Cadenza is its styling. The redesigned Cadenza looks more expressive and sportier than previous models. An interesting new exterior feature for the 2017 model is the option of two different grilles. Additionally, exterior features like the LED “piano key” taillights, a wider and lower body, and chrome accents help to give it a more athletic appearance style.
The Cadenza’s new interior is where luxury comes into play. The interior features soft materials and shear surfaces and a wraparound dash that flows into the door panels. The vehicle features a 360-degree surround view display of the vehicle, which is seen on the touchscreen on the dashboard. Additionally, for the 2017 model year, there are more interior color combinations available and buyers now have the option of upgrading to Nappa leather seating. Read the rest of this entry
