The South Korean automaker Kia has just revealed the first images of the all new 2010 Cadenza, a mid size four door sedan that is slated to replace the Amanti here in the U.S. The Cadenza will make its world debut towards the end of this year at the Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Dubai international motor shows in the middle east. On the exterior the new Cadenza looks almost identical to the identical to the KND-5 concept that Kia brought to the Seoul Motor Show earlier this year and features the same design language as the new compact Forte and second generation Kia Sorento.

Cadenza is really awesome on its looks! I love the angst and the aggressiveness of it. Well, I wish I could encounter this in person. smiley Anyway, what’s the engine specification of it?

I love the simple design of this Cadenza but I found it very appealing and interesting, the wheels also gave an impression of a classy car. It is a pretty cool indeed, so congratulations to the automaker. smiley

a bit less than i’ve already come to expect from kia after the forte and the soul... but still pretty good.

shame they had to put kia on it, otherwise a good car." It’s more of a shame to ask for a handout. Hyundai/Kia has made great strides in improving quality and style that even Toyota is taking notice.

well put, it was truly a joke, this is fine, a little more appealing than the camry visually, or the accord four door. looks like hyundai/kia are gaining a lot more experience in the areas that count.
