Meet the 2018 Cadenza, designed to command attention and surpass expectations. Motor Trend put it to the test and the results are in: unparalleled performance and head-turning surprises like available LED lighting and a freshly-sculpted grille. Plus, an aerodynamic shape so sleek, it's no wonder Motor Trend calls this year's Cadenza "still the best-looking car in its class."
Crafted for the senses.
The Cadenza is sophisticated design that engages the senses. With the smooth touch of soft surfaces, grand panoramic views through the available sunroof, and rich, dynamic sounds of the available Harman/Kardon QuantumLogic audio system. All these features come together harmoniously to make up the Cadenza's high-style, high-comfort cabin.
What can you expect with the Cadenza? An unexpected drivetrain engineered to thrill. The 8-speed Sportmatic transmission makes its Kia debut, delivering outstanding fuel economy, responsive power, and seamless shifting. Plus, the newly refined four-wheel independent suspension provides an athletic yet smooth feel.
Packed with advanced technology, the Cadenza has the power to transform your drive. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto deliver available features like hands-free calling, texting, and music management, while intelligent systems like Smart Welcome, Smart Power Trunk, and Smart Shift & Drive, can sense your presence and react to you.
From the strong and lightweight Iso-Structure construction to the responsive active and passive safety systems, the Cadenza is advanced protection with your safety always in mind. Built with active safety technologies that work automatically when you need them, the Cadenza helps keep you on track and in control. Even during harsh road conditions and certain emergency situations.
