Behind the Wheel: 2014 Kia Cadenza

By Jacob Brown | June 03, 2013
Every time we--or just about anyone else--review a Korean car, there seems to be a caveat. It's nice, but the steering is junk. It looks great, but it's a letdown compared to the competition. The suspension tries to be sporty, but it engineers seem to have forgotten that a smooth ride is just as important. We've nitted. And we've picked. And we've brought up all of these complaints and more in reviews for Kias and Hyundais, alike. For the first time, the 2014 Kia Cadenza may buck this. Supplanting the out-of-production Amanti sedan you probably forgot about four years ago, the Cadenza is the latest premium full-size sedan from the Kia, competing against everything from the Chevrolet Impala to the Lexus ES and Acura TL. And you know what? Kia could be on to something with it in a very big way. See what we mean in our First Drive of the 2014 Kia Cadenza.
