Trufflesoflove – You would be hard-pressed to find a much better underdog story than the one that has actually unfolded for the Kia brand. Undoubtedly, when the very first Kia versions arrived in the United States in the mid-1990s, they amassed about as much respect as Rocky did prior to he combated Apollo. The car manufacturer has actually seen its credibility skyrocket in recent years, however, as large strides made in design, overall top quality and also designing have caused some truly preferable Kias. In 2012, the intro of the Cadenza gave the firm a strong competitor in the big sedan course.
The 2016 Kia Cadenza, which shares its system with Hyundai’s Azera, is a step up from the midsize Optima and also because of this is larger and also a lot more powerful. Lengthy gone are the days when Kias lacked muscular tissue; the Cadenza loads a nearly 300-horsepower punch from its 3.3-liter V6 engine. That power is sent to the front wheels through a smooth six-speed automatic. Although the Cadenza has actually been tuned to offer a sportier drive than the Azera, it is still much more a high-end cruiser compared to a sport sedan.
