The car itself is really good mechanically but i have to agree with a previous reviewer who noted that the navigation system is horrible. Acceleration is consistent with other cars in the category. Handling is just ok, certainly not up to Audi A4 standards. Interior is great, the roof is great. I've had some problems with Kia Finance as well and recommend avoiding them, if possible.

You don't drive a Cadenza? Shame on you!

Just purchased my 2nd Cadenza Limited. This is my 7th Kia since 2001. This is the perfect car for price, warranty, options. You will pay a great deal more for same options on BMW, Lexus. Mercedes-Benz. Don't waste your money for the name and prestige of such. Test drive this car. You will purchase. Get the SX Limited. Excellent road car. Burn only premium fuel and you will get 30+ mpg on road trips. Over 500 miles on one tank of gas. Get one soon as 2017 is changing somewhat and I am sure price will increase as demand for this car will increase..

Saved our lives!

I loved my car & it saved my daughter and myself lives when we were Tboned at 60mph- we had minor injuries the curtain side airbags protected my daughter the car held up to such a hard impact I'm impressed- I will be replacing it with a 2016 Cadenza- so grateful for all its safety features and I will miss my black on black- great car!! And worth every dollar

BEST AND SHARPEST CAR ON THE ROAD

I test drove the Cadillac CTS, the Lexus ES 350 and the Cadenza. Absolutely love my Cadenza. I've owned many new higher end GM and Toyota cars but have never enjoyed driving one as much as my Cadenza. Apparently I'm not alone with my feelings as I am seeing more and more KIAs on the road. It is now 9 months later and I still love my Cadenza. My only additional comment about my Cadenza is that with the 19 wheels and a somewhat taut suspension, I feel that 18 inch wheels or higher profile tires would have been a better choice for more comfortable driving over some of the New England roads that are in disrepair.

Mostly Good

I have about 2K miles on a 2015. The Car looks nice, drives well and has good acceleration. Pricing was good. However buyers should know a couple of things: 1. These cars depreciate pretty quickly. Do you own comparison. Suggest a lease 2. The handling is comfortable but not sporty My one disappointment has been the built in GPS which simply consistently make VERY strange routing systems. The system allows you to pre-program selections such as "avoid tolls" but it has just been horrible. I am disappointed that i use Google on my smart phone for navigation although its not a huge deal. Positives are the roof (cool), the look (nice...looks a lot like a Lexus) , the acceleration is good, comfort is good. Very spacious.

My Cadenza - a symphony of motion

Drive it. Then drive an Avalon, a Regal, a Maxima, a Chrysler 300 and an Accord. The Kia Cadenza is the best ride - quiet, smooth, powerful and comfortable. The price is competitive too.

A great car and value

I purchased a Factory Certified 2015 Cadenza Limited. So far I have really enjoyed the car and received many compliments on it. I would say my only slightly negative comment is that I was surprised that the car does not have daytime running lights. I didnt even think to ask because they are so prevalent on cars and most all other Kia's seem to have them. Otherwise, I would certainly recommend this car to anyone especially as a used purchase as they are a great value.

kia Has Hit it on the Head!

The voice recognition system is really bad. My wife and I both have no accent whatsoever and it can't recognize a single name we ask it to call. Also the voice commands for music is very limited. It will not let you say paly a single artist or song (just shuffles your library.

No comparison!

I love cars. I love cars that are considered underdogs. I love cars that you don't see everyone driving. I love knowing that I have made a great deal and my car is worth every penny I spent. The cadenza is just that. An underdog that is better than its competition. No comparison. The impala, 300, Taurus etc. I owned two of the three competitors. Not that they are bad cars or alternatives. They just are not the best. I drove the Toyota Avalon, bmw, Acura, and Lexus. For the price range the cadenza blows them away. Not to mention the styling and standard features! Kia comes with the 5 year warranty and 10 year powertrain and a specific premium service for it cadenza owners. I love that there isn't one every time I turn the corner. As a matter of fact KIA should be paying me to advertise. Lol. Every where I go people are always wondering what the car is and when I tell them a KiA they are instantly intrigued and ask me questions. its a beautiful car, quiet, handling, safety, and standard luxury features. Kia is in the rise and its quality is great. No recalls. No repairs. No issues!! I haughty recommend. They have hit this one out of the park. From what I hear from other Kia owners, it is the norm to have high quality and no recalls. They have made it into the luxury market and are moving forward quickly. I hear the K900 is also beautiful and hard to compete with, you won't be disappointed. Give Kia a try. You'll be impressed to say the least. Trust me.

I traded my BMW for the all new 2015 Kia Cadenza. I did not make a mistake. This is car continues to impress me and my friends. Roomy, quite, smooth ride, and lots of luxury amenities that comes standard at half the price of BMW and Mercedes. Kia has step up to the plate with this car.

Better than BMW and Mercedes

Superb handling in a Beautiful Package. Road Handling is a little stiff which reminds me of premium european sedans. We now have 15K miles on our 2015 Cadenza and have no serious complaints and nothing has broken. Additional sound attenuation would be appreciated but the noise level is better than most comparable vehicles. All in all Kia has hit it out of the ballpark with the Cadenza. This may be the reason that virtually no dealer has any 2015 models remaining unsold.

Cadenza Premium

I purchased my Cadenza Sept 2014. Overall, I'm very happy with my selection. I was certainly torn between choosing the Cadenza over the Chevy Impala. They were identical in terms of what I wanted in a fully loaded full size sedan, however the Cadenza had just more of that "it" factor I was looking for. There is no way possible I could get this much standard luxury at the price I paid in a BMW, Lexus, Mercedes, Audi, etc.
