Large, luxury sedans that put comfort above all else are an old-school take on automobiles. Nowadays, cars are expected to be do-it-all machines that are not only comfortable, but look good, are fuel efficient, and are easy to drive. The 2019 Kia Cadenza manages to have an old-school charm with its luxury-first design, but is also easy to drive, as it's as maneuverable as a small car. The vehicle's sporty design for a luxury vehicle also makes it noteworthy.

What's New for 2019

The Cadenza carries over from last year without any changes.

Choosing Your Kia Cadenza

Unlike other full-size luxury vehicles in the segment, the Cadenza is only available with one powertrain. Whether that's a good thing or a bad one depends on whether you like having choices or simplicity. The large sedan is powered by a 3.3-liter V6 that generates 290 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard. Fuel economy for the Cadenza is EPA rated at 20 miles per gallon city, 27 mpg highway, and 23 combined.

In traditional Kia fashion, the Cadenza is packed with tons of features. Those features include the latest safety tech, including things like forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane change assist, rear cross-traffic alert, a head-up display, high beam assist, lane departure warning, a surround-view monitor, and a driver attention warning system.

The Cadenza is available in three trims:


Pricing for the entry-level Premium starts at $33,800 (all prices include the $900 destination charge). Standard exterior features include heated side mirrors, power-folding outside mirrors, perimeter approach lighting, puddle lights, automatic headlights, auto-leveling headlights, and 18-inch wheels. On the inside, the Cadenza comes with a seven-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, an eight-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, a manual tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather upholstery, a 10-way power driver's seat, and heated front seats. There are no available packages.


Moving up to the Technology trim costs $38,890. While that's a large jump in pricing, the Technology brings a panoramic sunroof, LED headlights, high beam assist, LED fog lights, 19-inch alloy wheels, an eight-inch touchscreen, navigation, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, a wireless smartphone charger, an electronic parking brake, and a HomeLink garage door opener. The Technology trim also brings a lot more safety features over the base trim, including: forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and a driver attention warning system. Kia doesn't offer any optional packages for the Technology trim.


The range-topping Limited trim is priced at $44,800. Going with the Limited trim brings chrome exterior mirrors, a smart power trunk, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a windshield wiper de-icer, unique 19-inch alloy wheels, Michelin tires, a surround-view monitor, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, a seven-inch TFT display, a head-up display, a power rear window sunshade, rear side-window sunshades, quilted Nappa leather-trimmed seats, a 14-way power driver's seat, a 10-way power passenger's seat, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a memory system, a heated steering wheel, and bespoke floor and trunk mats. The Limited is sold without any optional features.

CarsDirect Tip

Unless you really need an opulent, upscale vehicle, the Technology trim offers the most value. It brings a lot of standard safety features and has a decent amount of luxury options to make it a standout option in the 2019 Kia Cadenza lineup. While not having any optional features may seem like a downside, being able to get into a feature-packed vehicle straight from the get-go simplifies the car-buying process.
