Kia Cadenza Overview

The Cadenza is a competent and credible competitor among large sedans. There's a lot here for the money, including a luxurious, quiet interior, a roomy back seat, responsive handling, and a comfortable ride. The 293-hp, 3.3-liter V6 engine and standard six-speed automatic combine to make a slick powertrain that delivers a competitive 22 mpg overall. Controls are refreshingly easy to use and a host of electronic safety aids are available, but some of the most useful ones are bundled into expensive options packages. The Cadenza is too new for us to have reliability data.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
