Full Review

The 2016 Kia Cadenza clearly holds outward style and engine performance as its biggest assets, which means it’s an incredibly attractive option for anyone seeking a good-looking and athletic car. Its outer body is significantly upgraded from last years model, however the interior cabin and engine lineup receive no major upgrades. Nonetheless, the new Cadenza retains its sporty presence and compliments it with an energetic engine and refine interior. This vehicle is thus among the best in the midsize range as a decently fuel-efficient and aesthetically appealing sedan.

This year’s exterior upgrade to the 2016 Kia Cadenza features a combination of elegance and premium materials for a look that is handsome, modern and aggressive – unparalleled in the midsize sedan realm. The front fascia is redesigned with ice cube LED fog lamps and a revised tiger nose grille. As such, there are new taillight clusters and a large trunk-lid spoiler to complete the back end. Small modifications such as a reshaped rear quarter window and rear overhang further push this year’s Cadenza as one of the best looking sedans on the market.

Seating five, the vehicle’s interior closely matches the outward profile and is outfitted with high-quality materials throughout seating and dashboard components to achieve an elegant and upscale demeanour. The leather-topped dashboard is accented with chrome and features a reorganized center console that includes fewer buttons and knobs for better usability and an overall cleaner design. There’s also a seven-inch touch screen display adorning the center stack which features Kia’s infotainment system and bundles audio, navigation and a ton of additional features for an engaging and assisted driving experience. The interior likewise features dual-zone automatic climate control and dual sunroofs.

In terms of performance, the new Cadenza’s base model runs on front-wheel drive with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission unit. Impressively powerful and energetic, the 3.3-litre V6 engine delivers 340 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque while offering a fuel economy of 14.9 litres per 100 kilometres city and 10.1 litres per 100 kilometres highway. A rear camera system with backup warning sensors is standard on this sedan, while the available Technology Package bundles all available active safety systems. These features include smart cruise control, lane departure warning, blind spot detection and rear cross traffic alert.

All in all, the 2016 Kia Cadenza is an affordable midsize sedan that combines a stylish exterior profile with elegant interior detailing and an athletic engine. For the driver looking for an everyday car that is both attractive and comfortable, this might be the best fit.

Power and Performance:

Although the current V-6 is no slouch, a drivetrain update is mandatory for the next-gen car. However, don’t expect Kia to roll out a new powerplant for the Cadenza, but drop an upgraded 3.3-liter V-6 between the front wheels. Now rated at 293 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque, the V-6 should deliver around 340 horses and 310 pound-feet of torque. The transmission, on the other hand, will be new, as Kia plans to replace the current six-speed gearbox with a seven-speed, dual-clutch unit. As a result, the new Cadenza should be quicker from 0 to 60 mph and return better fuel economy. The current model needs 6.9 seconds to hit 60 and returns 19 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined.

Interiors and Special Features:

Very few details are known when it comes to interior of the new 2016 Kia Cadenza. Its cabin will have seats covered in Nappa leather, its dash will be leather topped and chrome accents will improve the overall look of interior which will have fewer control buttons. We also know that new Cadenza will have more legroom, much more space in the trunk and its rear seats will be foldable which always helps with the transport of bulky items.

Safety features:

The Cadenza comes with eight standard airbags, including front and rear seat-mounted side bags and full-length side-curtain bags. A rear camera system and backup warning sensors are included, too. All of the available active-safety systems are bundled together in the Technology Package, which is available on Cadenza Premium models equipped with the Luxury Package and standard when choosing the Cadenza Limited. A smart cruise control system offers four different following distances and will slow the car to a stop for traffic ahead. The lane-departure warning system may help alert you if you're drowsy or inattentive (it chimes loudly); meanwhile, the blind spot detection system helps warn of vehicles that are to the side and just behind, and rear cross-traffic alert warns of cars approaching as you begin to back up.
