KIA Teases Updated Cadenza Prior to LA Auto Show

Lower stance among exterior enhancements hinted by KIA sketches

Cutting edge design and premium sedan features will be harmonized into the upcoming updated KIA Cadenza sketches released late last week. The KIA Cadenza has been in production since 2010, and premium sedan fans in St. Louis and all across the United States have enjoyed what the Cadenza has offered since 2013.

A front three-quarter, rear three-quarter and interior sketch have been released to the public to show off what KIA fans can expect from the update Cadenza, possibly the 2017 model year or maybe even the 2016. From the exterior renderings, a longer hood with a lower, wider and more aggressive stance highlight the exterior enhancements for the updated Cadenza.

The exterior expects to look sharper will still maintaining the sleek contour lines that have made the KIA vehicles from Jim Butler KIA renowned in St. Louis. The new KIA Cadenza will be recognizable and able to compete with the more-expensive European badges not just in price but also in looks.

The interior sketch provides us with a taste of what those who drive and ride in the updated Cadenza will see. A more horizontal dash design upgrades the aesthetics and ergonomics of the driver experience. KIA touts this updates Cadenza, saying it will “maintain the progressive, contemporary image of the current model, while introducing higher levels of luxury and refinement to the large sedan segment.”

Last month, KIA revealed some of the specs of the 2016 Cadenza including a new base trim level and more standard features that were options in 2015. Since KIA is also promoting the new Sportage at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this week, we may not see the new Cadenza until the Detroit Auto Show, but releasing the sketches this close to an auto show is usually a good sign of what a dealer will put on stage.

For those seeking a premium large sedan but don’t want to pay the big price tags that Bavarian and German brands may cost, check out the KIA Cadenza at Jim Butler KIA in Chesterfield Valley.
