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

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)

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra delivers good handling and a lot of value for the money.

Pros
Sharp styling updates
Good value for money
Strong turbo engines
Elantra GT’s space and pace
Good fuel economy

Cons
Sedan’s less fun, especially without turbo
SE lacks safety tech
Clunky shifts in Eco
Some cheap touches in sedan

By:

Variety and value are the main ingredients in the 2019 Hyundai Elantra's appeal. Three available engines and six configurations mean it's easy to find an Elantra to suit your needs, whether that's you're focused on fuel economy or just something fun to drive. As for value, the Elantra doesn't deal in subtlety.

Pros
Offers broad range of technology and safety features
Comfortable ride
Quiet cabin with simple, intuitive controls
Offers one of the best warranties in its segment

Cons
Seven-speed automatic can be clunky at low speeds
Lackluster performance from base 2.0-liter engine
