2014 Kia Cadenza
2014 Kia Cadenza

New For 2014

The 2014 Kia Cadenza is a new model.

Vehicle Summary

The 2014 Kia Cadenza is a full-size sedan that's brand-new to Kia's lineup. It's a gussied-up Hyundai Azera, but that's just fine by us. The Hyundai is good to drive, and the Cadenza builds on that solid foundation. The 2014 Kia Cadenza comes with a long, long list of standard features, which isn't very surprising when you notice that the sedan starts at about $36,000. You won't spend much more than that, though, because the Kia Cadenza is available in only one trim level. It has one engine option, a 3.3-liter V-6, that's paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. Kia continues to make its cars more upscale, and the Kia Cadenza is a serious contender that can take on other semiluxury sedans such as the Buick LaCrosse and the Lexus ES350.

Overview

It might seem this way, but the 2014 Kia Cadenza is not a flagship model. It's a placeholder until Kia brings some iteration of its rear-wheel-drive Quoris sedan, currently sold on the other side of the world, stateside. Until that happens, though, the Cadenza's it -- Kia's big dog. And it wears those shoes pretty well.

To start, it's very luxurious for being less than $40,000, thanks in part to a huge list of standard features: automatic headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, power-folding exterior mirrors, LED taillights, a twelve-speaker audio system with a subwoofer, navigation, an eight-inch touchscreen, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, and more. You can also fit the Kia Cadenza with two available option packages. You should do without the $3000 Technology Package if you don't need adaptive cruise control. Your money would be better spent on the $3000 Luxury Package, which adds stuff like a panoramic sunroof, heated outboard rear seats, HID headlights, a heated steering wheel, and oh-so-soft Nappa leather.

Driving the Kia Cadenza is a bit unmemorable, but that's kind of what you want from a car in this class. Its suspension is soft, its steering is light, and anyone could get in and drive it. The 3.3-liter V-6 sends 293 hp through a six-speed transaxle to the front wheels, which have no problem pulling around this 3700-pound sedan. Even when the car is fully loaded with five passengers, the V-6's power is plenty. And that's good since you'll want to give all of your friends a ride in this comfortable cruiser.

You'll like:

  • Admirable list of standard features
  • Simple infotainment
  • Tons of rear legroom

You won't like:

  • Only one trim level
  • Only one engine option
  • Spongy suspension

2014 Kia Cadenza Front Three Quarter In Motion
It’s not hard to think of the 2014 Kia Cadenza as a fresh-faced new kid in the office, one with a firm handshake and a bright smile, who tries extra hard to ingratiate himself even though no one is quite sure why he’s there. Newly arrived in the Kia lineup for 2014, the Cadenza might be part of the brand’s over-eager attempt to push itself upmarket, but after living with one for 12 months and 20,650 miles, we found the car to be so well-executed and just downright pleasant that we couldn’t help but like it.
