2014 Kia Cadenza

The segment that encompasses the Ford Taurus, Lexus ES, Nissan Maxima, Buick LaCrosse, Toyota  and Lincoln MKZ had better make some room for another entry-level luxury sedan:  The 2014 Kia Cadenza. When Kia introduced the Cadenza at the North American International Auto Show earlier this year it was a huge step towards the company’s goal to become a luxury-car competitor by 2017.  The Korean automaker describes the Cadenza as “sophisticated”, “elegant”, and “the most technologically-advanced Kia ever offered in the U.S. market.”

The Cadenza will be offered in a single trim level powered by a 3.3 liter V6.  The six-speed automatic transmission includes Sportmatic manual shift mode and paddle shifters.  Standard features include advanced navigation system with SiriusXM Traffice and UVO Services, back-up camera and warning system, premium 550-wattInfinity 12-speaker audio system, dual zone automatic climate control with rear seat ventilation, remote keyless entry, Bluetooth wireless technology, and a 10-way power adjustable drivers seat. Two options packages – Premium and Technology – are available.

Look for the 2014 Kia Cadenza to arrive at Butler Kia in late Spring/early Summer 2013.  For more information click here.
