Base model lacks safety tech

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)

The 2019 Volvo S60 should give the "default" German choices a real run for the money.

Pros
Son of S90 style
Promise of good performance
Sedate interior
Lots of safety gear

Cons
Market has moved toward crossover SUVs
Is it too much like the S90?
Care by Volvo subscription off to a rocky start
Polestar Engineered not on T5, T6

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Fully redesigned for 2019

Pros
Appealing powertrain lineup including a high-performance plug-in hybrid
Long list of standard and available safety equipment

Cons
Interior user interface may be difficult to learn
