It’s here! The awaited, all-new 2017 Kia Cadenza. This new full-size sedan takes everything drivers love about the 2016 Cadenza and turns it up a notch or five. Every component of the Cadenza has gotten a facelift, from its newly designed exterior to its now standard connectivity features in the 2017 Cadenza – Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
For the 2017 model year, Kia has rolled out a number of new vehicles such as the 2017 Sportage, 2017 Niro and the new Forte. What all of these vehicles have in common is an increase in efficiency from previous model years and a number of added safety features. Making the 2017 Cadenza stand out however, is the sedan’s release under the company’s new sub-brand, DRIVE WISE.
The DRIVE WISE brand is Kia’s latest push toward improved driver assistance features becoming standard. As such, Kia has fitted the 2017 Cadenza with the following features in addition to engineering the model with a more rigid structure comprised of more than 50 percent Advanced High Strength Steel.

The 2017 Cadenza – “The Simplicity of a Straight Line”
Designed right here in the United States at Kia’s California design studio, the 2017 Cadenza was inspired by a simple phrase, “The simplicity of a straight line.” The elegant exterior features one expressive contour running the length of the sedan that not only creates a sleek appearance but also serves to increase aerodynamics.
A 360 degree view of the Cadenza reveals each of the model’s upgrades starting with segment first grille options to the new Z-shaped taillights and swinging around past chrome accents, returning to the chiseled front fascia.
