Reviews the 2014 Kia Cadenza


The 2014 Kia Cadenza looks handsome and expensive outside, and rich materials and blissfully simple controls are big wins inside, says reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder. Although Kia's new full-size sedan is classy and comfortable, shoppers may have trouble paying premium prices for a sedan from a non-premium brand, Wiesenfelder says. 

2014 Kia Cadenza Review

Eh another FWD fullsize luxury car. Yawn. The real deal coming soon from Kia is the Quoris.


You dont need RWD in a large luxury car like this. In most instances a person cant even tell the difference between RWD and FWD on the street.

The lacrosse V6 has a 13.3 cu ft trunk, the e assist model isnt comparable to a V6 powered Cadenza so there is no point in mentioning the e assist model. Why would you call out the smaller trunk of that model and fail to mention the trunk of the V6 model?


Who wants or needs $40K Kia??


it starts at $36k and I doubt they plan to sell a whole lot of them. You will pay $40k for a loaded Impala, Taurus or Avalon as well. None of these cars is cheap with options. Then again, they have a lot more space and equipment than $40k BMW or MB. Who needs a $50k 3 series?


It starts at $36K, but there are heavy discounts on them in my area. The dealers like them at about $30K. It's a pretty good deal.
