The 2018 Kia Cadenza ranked #3 in Large Cars. Currently the Kia Cadenza has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 20 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Upscale cabin
Lots of features

Cons
Touch screen unresponsive at times
Below-average trunk space

By:

For 2018, the Cadenza is essentially unchanged. There's only a minor rejiggering of feature content: Namely, the Luxury package now includes a panoramic sunroof and interior LED lighting.

PROS
Well-equipped for the price, especially in the base Premium trim
Vast amount of legroom allows all passengers to stretch out
Generous warranty coverage
Lots of available advanced safety features

CONS
From acceleration to handling, the Cadenza isn't much fun to drive
Trunk is smaller than rivals, and rear seats don't fold down
The ride isn't as composed as in segment leaders
Headroom is a bit tight for tall occupants (especially with sunroof)
