"Since the introduction of the
range-topping Optima SXL last year, we have seen an increasing number of
customers in our retail outlets looking for a sedan with even more
upscale amenities and technology," said Michael Sprague, executive vice
president of marketing & communications, KMA. "The Cadenza is the new
flagship for Kia in the U.S. market, and when it goes on sale later this
year, it will introduce a number of advanced systems that promise to set
a new standard in the premium segment."
With its distinctive front fascia and
swept C-pillars, the Cadenza's taut European design language is evident.
That it's propelled by Kia's most powerful V6 engine further announces
its intentions to provide an invigorating driving experience. Inside,
unparalleled premium appointments for five occupants strike the ideal
balance between sport and luxury. Combining these elements with
technology that, until now, has never been offered on any Kia vehicle in
the market, the Cadenza quickly rises to the lofty elevation of being
the brand's most advanced U.S. product.
