Practical and professional luxury for under $50k.

The Kia cadenza is a fabulous vehicle for day to day travel as well as long trips out of state. Features are plentiful and practical regarding the GPS navigation system, rearview display and Bluetooth connection to the phone which provides a ride of comfort that compliments the luxury ride offered by the manufacturer.

The price value is awesome.

The luxury features of the cadenza are fabulous and equal to those in an Audi q5, BMW 5 and 6 series. It is comfortable and roomy. It handles the road well and moves when you step on the gas. It is a poor performer in snow. As a matter of fact it is virtually in drivable with any snow.

Nice looking car. Like the button start. Controls are easy to operate.

I have had no problems with my Kia. It is a very comfortable car to ride and drive. It is my favorite car that I have ever owned. If I was in the market to buy another car Kia cadenza would be my first choice. It has been a very reliable vehicle. I feel like I am in a safe car.
