Elegant design sets new Cadenza above Kia fleet

Kia cars tend to look practical or youthful, so the new Cadenza's inclusion of refined features may not look at home among its siblings.

The Cadenza, Kia's second largest sedan behind the K900, shows off elegant styling and comes packed full of modern tech features.

The Cadenza is a full size sedan, seating five comfortably, with premium aspirations.

Despite an upscale design and feature list, the Cadenza remains a very good value against comparable sedans.

As the Cadenza uses a front-wheel-drive architecture, it does not work well as a sport sedan.

The design looks particularly elegant, with a grille that departs from other Kia models.

The Cadenza can be bought in three trim levels: Premium, Technology and Limited. Shown here is the fully loaded Limited model.

Zig-zag parking lights give the Cadenza a unique look.

Cadenzas at each trim level support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, although the two upper trim levels come standard with an 8-inch touchscreen, while the lower trim uses a 7-inch screen.
