Thanks to STI and Kia I was able to spend the week in the KIA Cadenza a new car to the KIA Fleet. It’s a luxury car with comfort and style. It’s my favorite car I have reviewed so far it’s fast. VERY Fast (probably my husbands favorite feature was that he could get up to 60 in what seemed like five feet.).
The Interior is roomy and comfortable. The one I drove contained the white leather seats and I found it so comfortable. It was the perfect amount of support and cushion I felt like I fit in that car like a glove. The Steering wheel was easily moved electronically and heated. The front driver seat was heated and cooled while all the other seats in the car were just heated. My kids and I prefer heated seats anyway, my husband however, he’s the opposite.
The car’s navigation and stereo system run on the usual suspect for KIA. (the UVO infotainment and telematics system with voice-recognition technology, and the back-up warning system, just to name a few.)
The LX model offers steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, Bluetooth® wireless technology, power windows, air conditioning, and power heated outside mirrors. The optional Premium Package includes unexpected additions like heated front and rear seats, a 10-way adjustable driver’s seat, a power sunroof, and a heated steering wheel.
The trunk actually has SPACE, loads of space. I think I had four suitcases in it. I had to pack a lot for a trip.
I really enjoyed driving it. Like I said before I was comfortable and had all the space I needed. In my current car when I have the seat comfortable I hit the steering wheel with my knees so it’s a little awkward. The Cadenza was a perfect fit for me. And speaking of fit, four adults would fit in this car quite nicely, so of course my children were happy to have so much leg room. And I can’t leave this post without mentioning the safety features. The car lets you know when there is a car in your blind spot, it beeps at you when you go over the speed limit and it keeps a distance as you are using the cruise control. As the car in front of you slows down so do you!
It’s a great car!
