2017 Kia Cadenza new car reviews

Why are we writing about a Kia Cadenza? Is it a new track car? Autocrosses latest darling?

No, it’s a big sedan from Kia. Here’s why it’s newsworthy: Kia keeps making more and more inroads here, and the all-new 2017 Cadenza is worthy family hauler.

It follows the usual formula: front-drive, V6, lots of bells and whistles. Pricing starts at $31,990.

The Cadenza’s 3.3-liter V6 produces 290 horsepower along with 253 lb.-ft. of torque. Remember when you needed at least 5 liters to make those kinds of numbers?

Kia has come so far so quickly, and they continue to make strides. Again, is the Cadenza an autocross machine? No. But if you, a buddy or friend need a modern, capable family car, kick some tires at the Kia dealership.
