The Hyundai Azera may have won Motor Trend’s recent full size sedan comparison, but Kia will soon have a competitor of its own in the form of the 2014 Cadenza. Helping keep Optima SX Limited buyers in the Kia family, the 2014 Kia Cadenza debuts at the 2013 Detroit auto show and serves as yet another example of how far the brand has come in the U.S. since first offering the original Sephia and Sportage.

The 2014 Kia Cadenza follows the dimensions of the 2012 Hyundai Azera (same wheelbase), but much like the smaller Optima, it’s a far more dashing car than its Hyundai counterpart. You can thank Kia’s chief designer, Peter Schreyer, for steering the Cadenza’s styling in a riskier direction. As usual, Schreyer was on hand for the press conference, and this time he participated in performance art on the stage. A Schreyer doppelganger appeared on stage with a box on his head, and each of the four outward facing sides had a video feed of the designer’s face. Before long, Schreyer, who always wears black-rimmed glasses, came to stand next to his twin. It didn’t have anything to do with the Cadenza, but it was strange and fun and typical of a Kia auto show press conference. Of course, there were also dancers, and if you look through the pictures, you’ll see they were neither old nor unattractive.

2014 Kia Cadenza Price :
When the Cadenza goes on sale in the second quarter of 2013, it’ll likely carry a base price in the $34,000 range. The loaded 2013 Kia Optima SX Limited carries a $35,275 base price while the 2013 Hyundai Azera retails for $33,145. With a few exclusive features you can’t find on any other Kia sedan, the 2014 Cadenza probably has what it takes to sell a few thousand units a year. More importantly, perhaps, the U.S.-spec Cadenza is another vehicle that can help Kia redefine its brand identity. How will it compare to other semi premium full sizers like the Hyundai Azera, Ford Taurus, Nissan Maxima, Lincoln MKZ, Lexus ES, Toyota Avalon, and the Buick LaCrosse?… We can’t wait to find out in a future comparison test.

2014 Kia Cadenza Interior :
he 2014 Cadenza rides in 18 inch alloy wheels, but 19 inch wheels are available with the Technology package that also includes the adaptive cruise control (the system can bring the car to a complete stop), an electronic parking brake, lane departure warning and blind spot monitoring systems, and what Kia calls a “water repellant hydrophobic windshield.” Before you go for the Technology package, though, you’ll have to select the Premium package, which adds above the standard Cadenza the adaptive HID headlights, a power retractable sunshade, Nappa leather seats, heated front and rear seats, the panoramic sunroof, a power tilt and telescoping steering column, the 12 way driver’s seat, and a 7 inch TFT LCD instrument cluster.

Offered in one opulently equipped trim level, the Cadenza takes in car technology and premium features to an entirely new level. Standard features include an advanced navigation system with SiriusXM Traffic and UVO eServices, displayed on a high resolution 8 inch touch screen. Further enhancing driver assurance is a standard back up camera and warning system, as well as a premium 550 watt Infinity 12 speaker audio system including rear surround speakers and subwoofer. The Cadenza’s standard equipment level is on par with many premium brands and boasts standard leather seat trim, dual zone automatic climate control with rear seat ventilation, Smart Key keyless entry with push button start, 10 way power adjustable driver’s seat and Bluetooth wireless technology. Two option packages are offered: The Premium Package and the Technology Package.

2014 Kia Cadenza Exterior :
In that vein, the 2014 Cadenza is the first Kia model to get the new direct-injected 3.3-liter V6. As in the Azera, it’s potent, with ratings of 295 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. A six speed automatic is standard, and because Kias are meant to have a sporty persona, there are paddle shifters. All Cadenzas will be front-wheel drive. Expect EPA ratings to land somewhere near the Azera’s 20 city/29 highway/23 combined mpg, and figure on a 0-60 mph time of around 6.7 seconds.

There’s a 10 way power adjustable driver’s seat, as well as dual zone climate control, ventilated rear seats, UVO eServices and a reverse camera with an integrated warning system. Two option packages (Premium and Technology) are also available.

Opt for the Premium Package, and the Cadenza gets a panoramic sunroof, adaptive HID headlights, a seven inch TFT LCD instrument cluster, Nappa leather seating, a 12 way power adjustable driver’s seat with cushion extension, heated front and rear outboard seat, a heated steering wheel and a power rear sunshade.

2014 Kia Cadenza Engine :
Still don’t see a reason to get a 2014 Cadenza over a loaded Optima?… The Cadenza is the only U.S.-spec Kia sedan to offer a V-6 engine. Under the hood of the front drive four door is a 3.3 liter V-6 producing 293 hp at 6400 rpm and 255 lb-ft of torque at 5200 rpm. With a six speed automatic, we expect the 2014 Cadenza which uses the same engine and transmission as that in the 2013 Azera to be EPA rated around 20/29 mpg city/highway.
