Take the 2017 Kia Cadenza on a Test Drive
The 2017 Kia Cadenza looks a lot like the previous model year, but the fact is that it has been significantly reworked. The car is now constructed with more high-strength steel, and the amount of hot-stamped steel is triple what it used to be. The doors offer more dent resistance, the sub-frame is brand new, and the chassis has 35 percent more torsion. You get more sound insulation, front windows that are laminated, and a full under-body cover. It’s an all-around improvement on an already great car. The brakes are bigger, it rides smoother due to the car being 40 pounds lighter, and the tech features are upscale
Sharper Styling for the 2017 Kia Cadenza
The 2017 Kia Cadenza comes with sharper styling. It’s a nice car with many trademark features. The grille is a little different, the sides are flatter, and the taillights are a little tighter. Inside, you have a more open cockpit, which makes it a pleasant environment. The dash is wide and flat, the front door handles scoop forward, and the Nappa leather seats have diamond stitching. One interesting feature is the analog clock on the dash, which is uncharacteristic of a car, but Kia had to do one more thing that sets this one apart from the others.
A Smooth Drive in the Cadenza
The drive is smooth, and backseat passengers aren’t going to complain during long road trips because of this smooth ride and the amount of room that they have. Kia redesigned the electric power steering to give better feedback. There are also plenty of driver-assist features to minimize the chance of an accident. There is blind spot detection, autonomous emergency braking, a lane departure warning system, and an around-view camera that will help you park.
Get Your Own Kia Cadenza
The 2017 Kia Cadenza comes a little cheaper than its previous model year, which is great for those looking for a practical car with a wide range of features.
