2017 Kia Cadenza Release Details Improvements and Redesign

When a young Will Smith said “Parents Just Don’t Understand” in the 1988 hit rap song, he was talking about how an older generation didn’t know how hard he had it, back when he was still a teenager.  In the case of the Kia Cadenza, the second generation of this large premium sedan is being born for the 2017 model year, so we can say in a way that the previous years’ models are the parents of the upcoming Cadenza model, and though the “parents” will surely try, they may not fully understand how amazing their “kids” – the 2017 models are.

While the 2017 Kia Cadenza will surely dazzle with its redesign, it also will sport improvements in other areas.  So let’s get down to it and look at details of its release.
