As a responsible adult, wife and mother, I appreciate that a dollar seems to go further in Kia's cars. Many of its smaller cars are loaded with features that aren't normally found in their competitors. Kia's strategy worked well for me until the all-new 2014 Kia Cadenza arrived in my driveway.
The 2014 Kia Cadenza is a sleek, full-size sedan that offers families plenty of room. While it has a lot of features — both standard and optional — it falls short with its offerings.
Case in point: A ventilated driver's seat in the 2014 Kia Forte was surprising, but in the Cadenza, it's expected. I also expected to find a ventilated front passenger seat in the Cadenza, too, but it wasn't offered.
