The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Kia Cadenza is no sport sedan, but it's a screaming deal of a luxury car in nearly everything but the badge. It took a while to get here, but the 2014 Chevy Impala fast-forwards over the past with fine handling and even better styling.
