The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Kia Cadenza is no sport sedan, and not quite a luxury car, but it offers many of the features premium buyers want, excepting maybe the badge, for a solid price. The 2015 Toyota Avalon is no longer just for retirees, although they'll appreciate the attractive design, available fuel-sipping Hybrid, and rejuvenated driving dynamics as much as anyone.
