2018 Kia Cadenza. On the outside, the new sedan is a single line contour that runs along the entire length of the car and is more like a couple like comparing the outgoing model. Takes the dye on the new interpretation of the “Tiger nose” design language, the car has a comprehensive look of simplicity and elegance.
Whenever the term “luxury cars” gets a crowd around, some brands come first to mind Mercedes-Benz, Cadillac, and Lexus among them. Not much Kia. But 2018 Kia Cadenza first appeared at the scene in the United States as a model in 2014, having entered the main part of the large sedans dominated by Toyota Avalon and the Chevrolet Impala. In 2018, the second generation arrives from Cadenza, and quietly moves further into execution, making it a niche along the semi-luxury sedan.
Our example of the test was wearing a pruning trim (which stands on a scotch Co. Ltd. ) and equipped with a white package, which bought seats wrapped in ivory colored leather nappa with quilted, diamond-stitched reinforcements. Microswide matching. Panels and cladding of leather doors. Black piano, faux wood, metallic silver color are all materials can be stolen from Mercedes-Benz.
Cadenza’s approach during the evening hours, LED interior lighting illustrating our bright white car cabin brought to mind the offerings we were seeing on the cars showing the turntables. Compared to the previous Cadenza, the rear seat riders gain half an inch of the hall and the passenger rear seats grow 45-46 Cubic feet.
Although the rear-end rear hairsplitting will tell you that the 49-cubic-foot reduction provided by the Toyota Avalon and Buick LaCrosse, the comfortable rear seat accommodates passengers more than six feet tall. Kia also enjoys excellent comfort in the front seat and a total passenger size of 105 cubic feet, an increase of two before. This is in a package with exactly the same overall length and a slightly longer wheelbase.
The design is new, with clean body panels and a single wrinkle body that extends along the length of the car, giving credibility to Peter Schreier, CEO of the “Straight Line Philosophy” design. The front end is a concave version of Kia’s “Tiger Nose” grille, although the appearance is much like the appearance of the Volvo S90. Rhinoplasty is available in the 2018 Kia Cadenza collection.
The lower decors use the “diamond butterfly” design along the lines of the other cages, but our experimental car rebounded the new Integlio mesh with vertically oriented blades. Daytime running lights feature Z-shaped signature lighting which also apply to LED backlight. While it looks upscale, annoying project shadows on the way forward, it is the product of how light is reflected inside the cans.
The 2018 Kia Cadenza includes a SCL as standard display head-up and all the tools and safety features available in less optional technology package models. Long list of safety technology include blind warning and front impact, rear alarm via traffic, help lane change, help rear parking, automatic high-beam, automatic emergency braking, adaptive adjustment control, lane exit warning, help keep warm, 360 degree camera vision system. Exclusive luxury packages include back-side rear-view rear-seat rear suspension, auto-open trunk, heated outdoor heated seats, and Napa leather furnishings.
Not surprisingly, the reliable Kia 3.3-liter V-6 in 2018 Kia Cadenza has improved fuel consumption. However, the Korean brand says that the V-6 rewind is estimated to produce 290 horsepower, a three-horse lower than the current model. Not quite good news if you expect 300+ horsepower from the new 2018 Kia Cadenza, but a lighter, tougher platform should enable the sedan to deliver better performance despite the power deficit.
With engine modernization and more solid architecture comes a new automatic transmission with eight kogs. Kia’s first 8-speed Voodoo, the new Slushbox is lighter than the six-speed automatic cars it replaces. Kia says it’s highly efficient and offers fast, clean transformations. Performance data is not yet available, which is not surprising since Kia will unveil its horsepower and torque later this year. Stick to updates.
The new 2018 Kia Cadenza is the first car to be sold in the United States under the brand name Dreyfus Wies, meaning it comes with the latest driver assistance features. The menu includes advanced intelligent speed control with stop and movement function, frontal collision warning, independent emergency braking, warning of lane departure, and blind detection. The latter is the first for Kia and the inadvertent drift senses towards an adjacent car and automatically brakes the front wheel side to help keep the intended car track.
2018 Kia Cadenza also features a new body structure consisting of more than 50 percent advanced high strength steel, Previous model. Structural rigidity has increased by more than 35 percent, not only improving safety but also driving dynamics. As for the airbags, Kia added a knee airbag to the driver, bringing the total number of airbags in the car to nine.
A great update should not increase the 2018 Kia Cadenza sticker by more than $3,000 on the current model. However, we expect to sell a second-generation sedan of about $37,000 and will remain competitive against similar products coming from American automakers at much more affordable prices than German offers.
