2020 Cadenza Offers Luxury Status at Affordable Price

Since the 2020 Cadenza has yet to officially hit the market, there isn’t any official word on the cost of this upcoming Kia sedan. The previous model started off at $33,100, so we can expect to see that this 2020 model will start off slightly higher, near $34,000. In comparison, the 2020 Lexus LS lineup starts off at an astonishing manufacturer suggested retail price of $75,450. Shoppers looking for luxury status without breaking the bank will find that the 2020 Kia Cadenza does more than provide.

This Cadenza model comes powered by a 3.3-liter V6 engine paired to an 8-speed electronically controlled Sportmatic transmission, delivering 290 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque on the road. The standard Kia Drive Wise suite of safety features welcomes a number of updates for the 2020 Cadenza, including a mix of systems that Kia is calling “Sensor Fusion.” New standard features in the Drive Wise suite include Lane Following Assist, Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist-Rear with Lane Change Assist, Highway Driving Assist, Smart Cruise Control, and Safe Exit Assist.
