2019 Kia Cadenza

2019 Kia Cadenza


With its strong performance capabilities, the 2019 Kia Cadenza puts on show on the road. The Cadenza is powered by a 3.3L V6 engine, which carries over from last year. This engine produces up to 290 HP at 6,400 RPM. The same engine is offered on all three trim levels of the 2019 Kia Cadenza. It comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission designed with fuel economy in mind. The transmission features overdrive technology, which reduces the engine’s RPMs per minute to improve fuel economy, reduce noise levels, and minimize premature wear. Front-wheel drive is also standard on the Cadenza.

2019 Kia Cadenza Interior


While the Cadenza’s exterior and performance credentials exude power and speed, its interior is elegant and upscale. To the delight of customers and auto critics, the 2019 Cadenza’s cabin has the amenities and comfort level to rival that of a luxury vehicle. “Expansive” is the term used to describe the Cadenza’s interior, which has plenty of room for (five) passengers between the front and back rows. As critics note, the driver’s seat won’t reach the back passenger’s knees, even with the seat fully extended back. 

Throughout the interior, there are plenty of storage spaces for your personal belongings, including an expansive glove compartment and storage pockets in both front doors. The trunk is larger compared to others in the Cadenza’s class, which provides you with plenty of storage space. A seven-inch display screen is standard on the base trim, while the two higher trim levels get an eight-inch display screen with navigation. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on all trim levels. 

The base trim (called the Premium) gets an eight-speaker sound system. The top two trims get a 12-speaker sound system instead. A rarity for its class, the Cadenza comes standard with leather seats. The top trim, which is called the Limited, gets quilted leather seats for even more support and comfort. A USB charging port and wireless smartphone charger are other highlights of the Cadenza’s interior. A backup camera is standard on all three trims, while the Limited gets a panoramic camera. A trip computer with fuel efficiency, range, and other vital travel information comes standard.


The 2019 Kia Cadenza is a sharp-looking and luxurious vehicle. It’s also designed with safety in mind. The Cadenza features a combination of driver-assist safety aids and passive safety features that are designed to keep you safe in an accident or prevent a crash from happening in the first place. Dual-stage front and seat-mounted airbags come standard on the Cadenza, as do full-length curtain airbags. A knee airbag protects the driver in a crash. Blind-spot warning, lane-change assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and parking distance warning are all standard safety features.

With all that it offers, it’s probably no surprise that the Kia Cadenza ranks #1 in its class of large cars as rated by US News & World Report. Along with its impressive looks, a variety of standard features and exceptional value make the Cadenza stand out in 2019.
