2014 Kia Cadenza Video Preview

January 21, 2013
Kia's finally ready to enter the premium sedan market, and its first entry is going to be the new 2014 Cadenza. Revealed last week at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, the Cadenza takes a different styling approach, while borrowing the Hyundai Azera's underpinnings.

The Cadenza wears Kia's latest design language nicely, with the "Tiger Nose" grille up front, and angled, wraparound taillights on the back. The wide track and large wheels lend the Cadenza a European flair which we've seen on recent Kia models.

While the styling is sharp, the standard list of features is nothing short of impressive. There will be one trim level for the Cadenza, with only a few option packages. The long list of standard equipment includes everything from leather upholstery and wood trim, to ambient lighting and navigation with SiriusXM Traffic.

The only engine option is a 3.3-liter V-6 rated at 293 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. The power is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. If you are looking for all-wheel drive or a hybrid powertrain you'll have to look elsewhere.
