It seems that the year 2019 will be quite successful when it comes to Korean carmakers. One of them that will present its brand-new luxury sedan will be Kia with its popular 2019 Kia Cadenza model. This vehicle will represent a serious rival to its other full-size luxury competitors in the market.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Kia Cadenza, this model is going to make its appearance as a full-size four-door luxury sedan that will simply attract those looks wherever it goes thanks to its eye-catching and glamorous exterior design. According to the information we have got, the new Cadenza will offer three trim levels to its buyers – Premium, Technology and Limited. Understandably, the equipment and features you get will depend on the trim you choose, with the Limited model being the most luxurious of them as well as the priciest. Be that as it may, the new Cadenza will undergo some rework and improvements in terms of styling. The front fascia will be lowered while the rear part will be higher positioned with its so-called ‘ducktail’ trunk. In the front end, the fans will notice the recognizable ‘tiger-nose’ grille that will be very attractive, but also stretched. The headlights and taillights will be equipped with the Z-shaped LED elements. All in all, the latest Cadenza will offer a really refined and sophisticated body.
The interior of the 2019 Kia Cadenza will certainly reveal a luxurious, spacious and comfortable cabin that will offer some serious updates and improvements, especially in higher trim levels. The ivory-colored leather on the seats together with those wood accents and panoramic sunroof will only add up to the ultimate comfort and pleasure during the ride. Also, the driver will get an 8.0-inch touch-screen display with the latest infotainment and entertainment system. It means that you should look forward to such features as navigation system, dual-zone climate control, satellite radio, premium audio system, USB, Bluetooth, Apple Car Play, Android Auto and wireless phone charging. It is needless to say that the new Cadenza will also tend to provide all the advanced safety systems and driver assist features that one would expect. Some of them include airbags, smart cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, a rearview camera, forward collision warning, blind spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert.
As far as we have been informed, the 2019 Kia Cadenza should keep using its current 3.3-liter V6. However, it might provide a bit lower output of 290 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque. The new Cadenza will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and get a front-wheel drive.
2019 Kia Cadenza Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2019 Kia Cadenza has still been a mystery at the moment. The price of this luxury sedan should start around $33,000, but it could go up to $45,000 for the Limited model.
