The Kia Cadenza actually started life out as the Kia K7 over in Kia’s home country of South Korea. It didn’t make it to the U.S. until the 2014 model year and was essentially a badge-engineered Hyundai Azera. For the U.S.-spec version, the Cadenza comes with Nappa leather seats – a luxury normally reserved for more high-end models from manufacturers like BMW and Mercedes, to name a couple. Furthermore, it came with Bluetooth phone connectivity, a navigation system, Kia UVO, alloy wheels, and a heated and ventilated driver’s seat. On the outside, the Cadenza featured styling and design cues that were inspired by European models and had Kia’s “Tiger Nose” front fascia to go with Standard LED headlights or the optional HID headlight units. All told, the car had graceful styling and a sculpted body that put it well above what we normally expect in a Kia.
