For a brief moment—until the introduction of the K900—the Cadenza served as Kia's flagship sedan in the United States. Since its roll-out in 2013, the Cadenza has received well-deserved accolades from the automotive and consumer press.

Choosing Your Kia Cadenza
There have been big changes at Kia in the last few years, and sharp styling has been central to the Korean carmaker's surging reputation. The Cadenza has a much sportier image than the Hyundai Azera, its corporate cousin with which it shares a platform, or the segment's benchmark Toyota Avalon.
The Cadenza's sole engine is a 3.3-liter V6 matched to a six-speed automatic transmission driving the front wheels. The setup is typical for the segment, and the Kia's is as good as any. Similarly, fuel economy is about average for the category with ratings of 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.
If you are in the market for a large front-wheel drive sedan, check out the Cadenza. You won’t be disappointed—both Premium and Limited models are a good value, and which you choose will depend mainly on your tastes and budget.
