2017 KIA Cadenza Review

Just after KIA released teaser images of the upcoming 2017 Kia Cadenza, our spies caught the car undergoing testing but under heavy camouflage. The sedan which was launched in 2010 to replace the KIA Amanti was only introduced in the US in 2013 as a 2014 model year.

The new 2017 Kia Cadenza takes aim at two of the outgoing full-size sedan’s big sore spots: Its conservative styling and its lack of driving polish. And, by and large, the automaker has succeeded with a new big sedan that looks and feels a class above its predecessor.

The very idea of a Kia luxury sedan seemed utterly ridiculous as recently as 2012, just before the original Cadenza appeared, raising eyebrows as the Korean brand put what it considered a first stake in the ground in the luxury sphere. But as we took our first spin in the second-generation 2017 Cadenza and adjusted the gap distance for the radar cruise control, no one was impressed with the fact that a Kia even had radar cruise control. Rather, we simply tested its newfound stop-and-go capability—as well as lane-departure mitigation and many other electro-nannies—just as we would if it were a Lexus ES350, a Lincoln MKZ, or a Buick LaCrosse. This near-luxury-sedan segment remains fiercely competitive even as total sales slacken against the rise of plushly trimmed crossover vehicles.

2017 KIA Cadenza Release Date

The second-generation Kia Cadenza has unexpectedly bowed at the 2016 New York Auto Show, and we’re left wondering how this thing even survived to get a second generation. The Cadenza has been on sale since 2013 and it’s never sold over 10,000 units in one year. Even if you combine US and Canadian sales, Kia’s best year for the Cadenza was 2014, where it sold just 9,427 cars.

2017 KIA Cadenza Specs

2017 KIA Cadenza Specs

Below we have summarized some of the reviews about the features of the car exterior and interior 2017 KIA Cadenza. The car is expected to be a comfortable car for the ride by the community.

Strongly European-influenced, the 2017 Kia Cadenza presents as upscale a look as we’ve ever seen from the Korean automaker, besting even the brand’s actual flagship—the comparatively dowdy K900.

The exterior design of the new 2017 KIA Cadenza will be extensively redesigned to conform to KIA’s ongoing design language.

Premium models have their own grille treatment and ride on 19-inch wheels, while Technology and SXL grades sub in a slightly different fascia and a choice of 19-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin rubber designed specifically for the Cadenza. All models have LED running lamps carved into a Z-shape that would make Zorro happy; the look is repeated at the rear. Opt for the Technology or SXL and you’ll net full LED fog and head lights.

The cabin will be kept clean with few buttons and switches. It will be fitted with premium materials to up its standards of luxury in order to give the German machines that usually set the standards very high a run for their money. Nappa leather upholstery on seats and dashboard in the outgoing model is set to carry over to the new model. Due to the extended wheelbase rear passengers will enjoy increased leg room. We also expect the cargo space to slightly increase from the current’s 15.9 cubic feet, the rear seats will have a folding capability to help extend the cargo space further, a feature missing in the outgoing model which features a small opening when the center armrest is lowered.

If you happen to get in back, prepare to enjoy some real spread-out room seriously, it’s huge and a great view up through the panoramic sunroof that’s standard issue on Technology and SXL models. Kia knows what this segment wants and made the rear seat a big priority, giving it 0.4 inch more legroom than before, sculpted seatbacks, USB and 12-volt power ports, and, on SXL models, outboard seat heaters and power sunshades for the side glass and rear window. It lacks only rear-seat climate controls to tick all the boxes in a feature comparison with the segment stalwarts.

We expect the 2017 KIA Cadenza to offer the latest technological features including Bluetooth connectivity, Smartphone integration, USB ports, Wi-Fi connectivity, a premium sound system and the latest infotainment system integrated with a large screen. Security wise, the 2017 Cadenza will be equipped with a package of driving aids which will include ABS, traction control, Lane keep assist and parking assist among others.

The recent released renderings show that the Cadenza will have a slightly longer wheelbase, long hood, a huge tiger-nose grille flanked by aggressive headlamps and unique LED daytime running lights. The rear is sportier with larger taillights, huge exhaust tips and a bumper that is crisper looking than the outgoing model.

First, Kia tackled the looks of the Cadenza. Under the well-trained eye of the man who brought us the iconic first-generation Audi TT, Peter Schreyer, the Cadenza gets an athletic overhaul. The car is the same length as its predecessor though the wheelbase has been extended by 0.4 inches, the entire car has been lowered by 0.2 inches, and widened by nearly an inch. The extension of the character line along the body makes it look taut, and inside there’s one cubic foot of extra interior space, with rear passengers benefiting from an extra 0.4 inches of leg room.

2017 KIA Cadenza Engine

Under the hood, we expect the Cadenza to feature the same engine as the outgoing model. However, the engine will be tweaked to provide more power. The 3.3 L, V-6 unit which delivers 293 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque will be upgraded to produce 340 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque.

As with previous Cadenzas, Kia’s 3.3-liter naturally aspirated V6 feeds the front wheels only. Compared to the outgoing model, the 2017 Cadenza is down 3 hp and 2 lb-ft, dropping total output to 290 hp and 253 lb-ft. The difference is negligible, but there’s reason for the change.

Power is provided by a largely carried-over 3.3-liter V-6 rated at 290 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque, figures down a bit from before but compensated for thanks to a new 8-speed automatic transmission offering two more gears than last year. The 8-speed was designed internally by Kia and its parent company, Hyundai, and it’s a winner in this application.

The engine will also be paired with a new transmission which will be a 7-speed dual-clutch unit replacing the current 6-speed transmission. This combination will enable the vehicle to move quicker and with a better fuel economy. Currently, the Cadenza returns 19 mpg, 28 mpg and 22mpg for city, highway and combined drives. The current car accelerates from 0-60 mph in 6.9 seconds which is likely to improve albeit slightly.

Driving the Cadenza generates less enthusiasm. It is powered by the same direct-injected 3.3-liter V-6 as the outgoing model, although now it’s down slightly from 293 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque to 290 horses and 253 lb-ft. It pairs with Kia’s new eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine is powerful enough and not noisy, but it’s not quiet enough to be remarkable in this segment.

The overhaul didn’t stop with just looks. The front-wheel drive, full-size sedan is powered by a revised 3.3-liter direct-injected V-6 that makes 290 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission that was designed in-house. The outgoing model had more horsepower and torque (by 3 hp and 2 lb-ft), but the 2017 Cadenza is EPA-rated at 20/28 mpg city/highway, compared to the 2016 model’s 19/28 mpg (2017 ratings are more stringent than before). That 20/28 mpg is just above the 2017 Chevrolet Impala‘s 18-19/28 mpg, about even with the 2017 Hyundai Azera‘s 19-20/28 mpg, and below the 2017 Buick LaCrosse‘s 21/31 mpg with front-wheel drive.
