For many years, large sedans have been seeking that perfect combination of style, performance, and luxury. We see more car buyers coming in to look at our four-door sedans these days. They are looking for a smoother, more comfortable ride with ample head and leg room. At the forefront of that shift is the latest model of the beautifully redesigned Kia Cadenza. This car is elegantly styled inside and out. Let us take you through some of the features you can expect to find when you start looking at the new 2018 Kia Cadenza near Albuquerque, NM.


Luxury Features

Before even climbing in, the Cadenza's keyless entry and ignition mean no more fumbling for the lock. As we approach the vehicle, the interior and exterior lights turn on and the power-folding mirrors unfold. Whether carrying groceries during the day or approaching your car in an empty parking lot late at night, this feature is a huge benefit. We can slide into the power-adjustable leather seats and the vehicle springs to life around us.

Dual-zone automatic climate control and heated seats acclimate both driver and passengers to any environment. This is especially useful when temperatures fluctuate as wildly as they do here. When the mercury drops to the low twenties in January, the heated seats and climate control keep drivers rolling in comfort and style. But, when temperatures soar into the triple digits by July, the dual-zone auto AC makes every trip cool and comfortable.

The cabin houses a 12-speaker surround sound system with a Bluetooth capable infotainment system that controls most aspects of the interior. This is great when you want to really enjoy some music, and the sound-absorbing front and door windows help keep road noise to a minimum.

One of our favorite features is the large navigation screen. It uses intuitive logic menus, creating the perfect synthesis of man and machine. When you come to see us and the new 2018 Kia Cadenza near Albuquerque you are looking at the height of affordable luxury transportation.

But, the options aren't limited to the interior. We really like the active xenon headlamps that are available with certain trim kits. Also, a built-in panoramic sunroof creates the perfect way to watch the stars during late night drives. Combined with sleek and stylish lines, the Kia Cadenza gives an aggressive and sporty feel to the large luxury class.

Impressive Safety Measures

Sporting top of the line safety features and driver-assisted protective measures, the 2018 Kia Cadenza works hard to keep its passengers safe. With a rear-facing camera and dashboard display, parking becomes a breeze. The rear parking sensors help when backing into cramped spaces, and the top-of-the-line navigation system gives drivers and passengers alike the comfort of knowing they are headed in the right direction and on time to the next appointment.

The 2018 Kia Cadenza offers an adaptive cruise control to help with unexpected speed changes during highway driving. It also boasts a blind spot detection system that warns you of potentially unseen vehicles adjacent to the car. The lane departure warning system will notify you if the car starts to drift out of its lane.

Performance Specifications

When we look at new cars, any talk of performance starts with a look under the hood. The Cadenza holds a 3.3-liter, V6 engine that cranks out 290-horsepower, cycling through an electronically controlled 8-speed Sportmatic transmission system. It's a front wheel drive vehicle with 4-wheel anti-lock disk brakes, steel unibody construction, and motor-driven power steering that comes standard.

As a larger vehicle, one can reasonably expect a certain amount of swing to the turns and a little sluggishness through the corners. We can assure you that isn't the case with this luxury sedan. It feels remarkably tight as it turns, and the engine responds well, delivering just enough power to make the curves feel sporty without jostling. It's a remarkably smooth ride and the performance fits well with the overall feel of the vehicle.

Technology and Infotainment

The real advances in luxury automobiles come in the details. When we began looking to host the 2018 Kia Cadenza near Albuquerque, we quickly fell in love with the connectivity and user-friendly format of the large displays and infotainment controls. Eight-inch displays, SiriusXM and HD radio, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay all come preloaded. There is a wireless smart phone charger available, with Bluetooth hands-free connectivity throughout the cabin.

For a slightly sportier ride, the steering wheel comes with paddle shifters. In addition, the wheel still houses controls for the cruise control, hands-free phone service, and audio controls. This gives more of a feeling of connection to the vehicle, improving the overall driving experience.
