2014 Kia Cadenza

The Good With an LCD speedometer, a responsive user interface, and many driver-assistance features, the 2014 Kia Cadenza is a tech juggernaut. Solid dynamics and luxury cabin appointments make the Cadenza a pleasure to drive.

The Bad Although Uvo eServices gives it some telematics features, there is no integration with popular apps. There is no perspective view for the navigation system.

The Bottom Line The large, premium 2014 Kia Cadenza sedan might seem pricey by Kia standards but compares well feature-by-feature with other premium makes.

Update: Kia released pricing and new details about trim levels on April 19, 2013. The Cadenza wil be available for a base price of $35,100. The Luxury package, referred to in this review as Premium, raises the price to $38,100. Kia set the price of the Technology package Cadenza at $41,100.

Driving the 2014 Kia Cadenza, I contemplated the older-model Mercedes-Benz E320 sitting in front of me, and realized that the Kia had a much better cabin.

The thought of comparing Kia favorably with Mercedes-Benz was unheard of 10 years ago.
