Premium 2016 Cadenza Looks to Boost KIA’s Line-up in Next Model Year

More trim levels, increased value propels FWD sedan into 2016 at Jim Butler KIA in Chesterfield, MO

The KIA Cadenza is coming off an award-winning year and seeks to build off its accolades for 2016. KIA’s premium front-wheel drive sedan won AutoPacifica’s Best Large Car for 2015, and the upcoming model year looks like a breakout year for the Cadenza.

New base trim still retains Cadenza charm

The Cadenza enhances its value for 2016 with three available trim levels and updated options. A new base model has been added to the trim levels for the KIA Cadenza which helps to lower the entry cost. Fans of the Cadenza can still find the almost-luxury sedan’s luxurious appearance even at the base trim.

Base Cadenzas still retain their 18-inch alloy wheels, projector beam headlights, rear LED combination lamps, and front fog lights. Navigation now comes standard across the entire Cadenza line as well as an 8-inch color touchscreen. This intuitive touchscreen features an integrated Rear Camera Display.

KIA included other great features from the upper-level Premium and Limited trims. To enhance the Cadenza’s value, KIA added to the new base trim:

  • a premium Infinity audio system
  • eight-way power adjustable passenger seat 
  • 10-way driver’s seat 
  • leather seat trim
  • heated front seats
  • Bluetooth wireless connectivity
  • Steering wheel audio controls
  • dual-zone automatic climate control
  • push button start.

Higher trims’ options become standard on 2016 Cadenza

With all the attention on the new base trim, the Cadenza’s Premium and Limited trims aren’t without their changes for 2016. A panoramic sunroof, normally an option, is now standard on the Premium trim. Other additions that up the convenience factor in the Premium trim include steering wheel mounted paddle shifters, UVO eServices with voice command, a 550-watt Infinity audio system, auto rain-sensing wipers and a back-up warning system.

The cream-of-the-crop Luxury trim gains Blind Spot Detection with Rear-Cross Traffic Alert  to improve the safety features on the Cadenza. The Luxury’s SXL’s package comes fully equipped with extra features such as 19-inch chrome alloy wheels, LED fog lights, a Surround-View Monitor and a rear armrest with pop-out cup holders and USB charging port. Cadenza fans will love the Luxury SXL’s unique front grille, premium headliner and additional wood grain style trim.

No matter your 2016 Cadenza trim choice, you’ll be powered by the smooth 3.3-liter V6 and its 293 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. Have some fun with the six-speed automatic transmission that includes a Sportmatic manual shift mode.
