If you're familiar with musical phrases or notation, you might know that Cadenza means "a virtuoso solo passage" - well, once you get inside a 2016 Kia Cadenza you probably won't want to keep the comfort to yourself. A similar sentiment can be said of the 2016 Chevy Impala, the latest in a long lineage of large sedans bearing the name which also means "graceful antelope." Which is another way of saying these large sedans are nimble and expressive, and we'll compare their main features to see which will be the last standing at the end.
The 2016 Impala starts with 196 HP in its base trim level, which the 2016 Cadenza easily demolishes with a 3.3-liter V6 engine and 293 HP in all three trim levels, giving you increased ability to change lanes get off the blocks quickly when space is tight in stop-and-go traffic. The 2016 Cadenza's merits don’t stop there – the sedan is more spacious on the inside with 106.8 cubic feet for passengers to the 2016 Impala's 105 cubic feet.

Large sedans need to provide room for passengers and pump out a lot of ponies for performance, both of which the 2016 Kia Cadenza does better than the 2016 Chevy Impala, but when you're stepping up to this class of sedan, you also expect better features than what you'd find in a midsize sedan or a compact car. The 2016 Impala comes with six speakers standard in all trim levels, with 11 available for its top trim, while the 2016 Cadenza doubles down with 12 speakers in all trim options and UVO eServices for voice-command navigation, points of interest, and more. And you also want a comfortable seat that matches the style present in the rest of your car, which the 2016 Cadenza provides in spades with available Nappa Leather seat trim.
