2014 Kia Cadenza Prices Start at $35,900

4/25/2013
The new 2014 Kia Cadenza is a large luxury-themed sedan that shares its architecture and engineering with the Hyundai Azera. Expected to arrive in dealer showrooms in May of 2013, the new 2014 Cadenza has a base price of $35,900, including the $800 destination charge. That's $625 more than a fully loaded 2014 Kia Optima midsize sedan.

"The all-new Cadenza is a world-class Kia for the emerging space between mainstream and luxury and will appeal to discerning shoppers in the market for an upscale sedan," said Tom Loveless, executive vice president of sales, Kia Motors America. "We're confident that Cadenza's sophisticated styling, luxuriously appointed cabin and long list of available technology will make it a strong contender in the marketplace."

Kia offers the 293-horsepower Cadenza with a long list of standard equipment. An optional Luxury package ($3,000) adds premium Nappa leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, ventilated driver's seat with 12-way power adjustment and 2-position memory, heated and power-operated tilt/telescoping steering wheel, power panoramic sunroof, HID headlights with an active front lighting system, and a reconfigurable 7-inch LCD gauge display.

Cadenza buyers can also upgrade to a Technology package ($6,000), which includes everything in the Luxury package plus a blind-spot detection system, lane-departure warning system, advanced smart cruise control system, and an electronic parking brake. Additionally, models with the Technology package are equipped with 19-inch aluminum wheels and what Kia terms "hydrophobic" front window glass that repels water for improved outward visibility.
