Driving Impression

The 3.3-liter V-6 doesn’t have the oomph of American, German and Japanese rivals, but most of the time its 290 horsepower is enough. Meanwhile the 8-speed automatic offers smooth, quick shifts. But the Cadenza’s best dynamic feature is its ride, which is supple, even stellar, and even on the larger 19-inch wheels.

There are four driving modes—Comfort, Eco, Sport, and Smart—but we couldn’t feel much difference between them. We tried Sport on a curvy road, and it didn’t change much; the Cadenza works best in Comfort mode, and might as well be left there. Comfort is what the Cadenza is all about.

Walk Around

The Cadenza looks more expensive than it is, with Z-shaped lightning-bolt-looking LED running lamps, a concave grille, big wheels and tasteful chrome accents. It wears its sheetmetal with confidence. The styling isn’t as spirited as the Kia Stinger, but then it isn’t intended to be. It’s supposed to look like a German luxury car, namely a BMW, which it does.

Interior Overview

The cabin delivers as well, with a business-like design offering standard leather seats and high-quality materials including trim. The Technology and Limited models offer more luxury, including optional Nappa leather and faux suede. The controls are centrally and ergonomically positioned around the touchscreen. There are several storage bins.

The front seats are soft and supportive. The Technology and Limited feature a power thigh bolster. The panoramic sunroof cuts into front headroom.

There is ample headroom and legroom in the rear, where three adults can comfortably fit, but two are always better. The trunk is big, with 16 cubic feet of cargo space.

The cabin is silent, thanks to plenty of sound deadening.

Summary

If you want a stylish and very comfortable full-size sedan in your driveway to impress your neighbors, the 2019 Kia Cadenza is an excellent choice. It has a smooth powertrain, a stylish and roomy interior with leather upholstery and a big trunk, and full active safety equipment on all but the base model—not to mention a great warranty.
