Luxury-Level Cadenza Pushes Ahead of 2020 Acura TLX

Set to go on sale later this year, the 2020 Kia Cadenza is keeping shoppers on their toes. This 2020 model is stunning from every angle, with multi-lens LED headlights and redesigned 18-inch wheels paving the path ahead. Beneath its hood, the 2020 Cadenza is powered by the smooth 290-horsepower 3.3-liter all-aluminum V6 engine that powered last year’s models paired to an 8-speed electronically controlled Sportmatic transmission. With larger rear dampers, redesigned shock valves, and resonator wheels, the entire driving experience in the 2020 Cadenza is improved over last year’s model. Drivers will notice less road noise in the cabin and less vibration behind the wheel thanks to these updates. The competing 2020 Acura TLX is fitted with a 206-horsepower 2.4-liter inline-4 engine paired to an 8-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission.

When behind the wheel of the 2020 Kia Cadenza drivers can ride with confidence knowing the standard Kia Drive Wise suite of driver-assist technology is there to step in when needed. The 2020 Cadenza now features a standard combination of Forward Collision Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with pedestrian/cyclist detection, Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, and High Beam Assist, plus additional Drive Wise Systems. The competing 2020 TLX does not offer a standardized suite of safety or driver-assist systems across its trim levels.
