2017 Kia Cadenza vs. 2017 Acura TLX

The 2017 Kia Cadenza is flying high with all the awards it has been honored with for the 2017 model year. While the Cadenza nameplate is a relative newcomer in the large sedan class, the 2017 rendition has the gravitas, the style, and the performance to take on the premium auto brands and provide superior value, saving you thousands on a vehicle that was highest-ranked overall among all models in the 2017 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study.

Take the 2017 Acura TLX, for example, a luxury sedan that has fine fuel economy and a strong reputation being part of the Acura brand. But the 2017 TLX cannot come close to the passel of awards, features and praise that the 2017 Cadenza achieved for the 2017 model year. Take, for starters, that the 2017 Cadenza was an Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the year winner for the "Luxury On-Road" category, or its 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick, which says it's among the most crash-resistant vehicles in its class. The TLX has neither of these honors. The TLX nameplate also has a cold, science-fiction vibe that is reminiscent of a movie title like "THX 1138," a film that George Lucas directed before he became famous with "Star Wars," but to get back to the cars - we have the sedan you're looking for in the 2017 Kia Cadenza!
