The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Azera is the big, stylish, luxurious Hyundai for folks who don't want the Genesis's bulk or price tag. The 2016 Kia Cadenza is no luxury sport sedan, but it offers almost all of the trappings except for crisp handling—and maybe, the right badge.
