Premium sedans can be tricky. There's not as many of them on the road as there are midsize sedans or compacts, and it can be harder to figure out which models are known for quality and craftsmanship. We've scoured the marketplace and found two fine sedans, the 2016 Kia Cadenza vs. 2016 Volkswagen CC, and we'll pit them against one another.
Volkswagen sedans are well-known, and the 2016 VW CC can comes with two powertrains, either a 2.0-liter 200 HP version or a 3.6-liter V6 with 280 HP. However, the 2016 Kia Cadenza takes the guesswork out by providing a superior amount of engine power in all three model options, with a 3.3-liter, 293 HP monster that does all the hard work for you as you navigate the morning commute or head off on a road trip. And with the 2016 Cadenza's 19 mpg city, 28 mpg highway you'll get more value than the 2016 CC's V6 models, which get 17 mpg city, 25 mpg highway.
|2016 Kia Cadenza||Vs.||2016 Volkswagen CC|
|19 city, 28 highway||MPG (top-line models)||17 city, 25 highway|
|106.8||Passenger Room (cubic feet)||93.6|

The 2016 Kia Cadenza has all the refinements and features that you should expect from a premium sedan, with 12 speakers and 106.8 cubic feet of room for passengers, which easily trump the 2016 CC's compact-like 93.6 cubic feet for passengers and its 10-speaker audio system. Let's not forget the design of the vehicles, as the 2016 Cadenza has a style that is European-inspired but also maintains a sense of youthfulness and fun, with lightweight wheels, a powerful design and a sleek roofline. The 2016 CC is European (which makes sense as VW is a German automaker) to a fault, stylish but stoic with its flatter lines and sharper angles.
