SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal; 'good,' side impact; 'good,' roof strength
IIHS

The 2014 Kia Cadenza hits all the marks for safety, and with its 'single-spec' presentation, it's easy to wrap in a few innovative active-safety options.

The Cadenza comes with eight standard airbags, including front and rear seat-mounted side bags and full-length side-curtain bags. A rear camera system and backup warning sensors are included, too.

An advanced smart cruise control system offers four different following distances and will actually brake the car to a stop for traffic ahead, while the lane-departure warning system may help alert you if you're drowsy or inattentive (it chimes loudly); meanwhile, the blind spot detection system helps warn of vehicles that are to the side and just behind.

The Cadenza has earned top 'good' scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in all categories. It's a Top Safety Pick for 2013 in its 2014 model-year launch edition, but it hasn't been crash-tested for small-overlap strength--the IIHS' new requirement for its highest awards. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn't tested it at all.

We'll update this section as the ratings are released.

Conclusion

There's value here for those concerned about safety; the 2014 Kia Cadenza offers all the luxury features you'll find in luxury cars costing much more.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
