The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2016 Toyota Avalon gets some minor fillips as it vies again for our top rating among large sedans.
