Kia announced this week that its reentry into the full-size sedan segment, the 2014 Cadenza, will start at $35,900 (including an $800 destination charge) when it hits dealerships later this month. The sedan — powered by a 3.3-liter direct-injection V-6 good for 293 horsepower and paired with a six-speed, sport-tuned automatic transmission — will be available in one trim level with two available options packages.
The Korean automaker calls the Cadenza, which debuted at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, its "most powerful and technologically advanced" vehicle ever offered in the U.S. It is also Kia's first full-size sedan since the Amanti’s departure a couple of years ago.
"Aside from a unique blend of European-inspired design, dynamic performance and high levels of refinement, Kia's newest flagship offers class-leading interior room and standard features," Kia said in a statement.
