2017 Kia Cadenza in Little Rock, AR | Steve Landers Kia

The second-generation of the Kia Cadenza shows refined powertrain capabilities, advanced technology and luxury features with expressive styling. The 2016 model was the first of this vehicle, and Kia has made a few upgrades so the second-generation model is even more sophisticated. At Steve Landers Kia in Little Rock, Arkansas we're excited to tell you why we love this car.

The 2017 Kia Cadenza is available in three trim levels: Premium, Technology and Limited. With a starting MSRP of $31,990, this is one sedan that feels like a luxury car without the outrageous price tag.

Under the hood of the 2017 Cadenza sits an altered version of Kia's 3.3-liter V6 engine with 290 horsepower which outputs 253 pound-feet of torque. The engine has been revised for better fuel economy and can deliver 23 mpg combined. The Cadenza features a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, front-wheel-drive and Smart Shift and Drive. The front suspension is Independent MacPherson Struts with front stabilizer bar and the rear suspension is Multi-link type.

The 2017 Cadenza offers a new body structure that's lighter and stronger than its predecessor. The Cadenza's foundation is built on a body structure that is made up of more than 50 percent of Advanced High Strength Steel and the side body panels feature tensile strength steel to improve its resistance to denting. In addition, the wheelbase has been stretched and the roofline has been extended rearward to give more legroom, rear headroom and trunk space while providing a sportier look. But the first think you'll notice about the Cadenza is the stylish new Z-shape lighting signatures in the headlights.

Standard exterior features of the Optima include: LED positioning lights, projector beam headlights, power adjustable headed outside mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, acoustic windshield, rear window defroster and more.

The driving experience in the 2017 Kia Optima is better too. The driver's seat is lower for a more stable ride. The innovative cushion extension mechanism slides and rotates to allow for you to find the best comfort zone behind the wheel.

It would be easy for Kia to be satisfied with how great the first-ever Cadenza was, but they weren't. The 2017 Cadenza is equipped with updated technology, like the Head Up Display (HUD), available only on the Limited trim. HUD shows key driver information like speed and turn-by-turn navigation directions on the windshield directly in the driver's line of sight.

Other standard tech and interior features include: trip computer, leather seat trim, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear shift knob, woodgrain interior accents, Rear-Camera Display, USB/auxiliary input jack, Bluetooth Wireless, steering-wheel-mounted control buttons, Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control and more.

Available interior features include: heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats, LED interior lighting, Wireless Smartphone charger, Voice-Command Navigation with eight-inch display and more.

Ready for another reason why the 2017 Cadenza is a step up from last year's model? When equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights, the Candenza has earned the title of Top Safety Pick Plus from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This is the highest honor possible from IIHS.

In addition to the Cadenza being built on a body of Advanced High Strength Steel, the following safety features are available: Smart Blind Spot Detection System, Advanced Smart Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning System, Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane Departure Warning System.

With the improvements made in the past year and incredible standard features, you should be driving a 2017 Kia Cadenza. Come see us today to start your future with a Kia.
