It's time to pull a Jefferson's and "Move on Up" to the luxury sedan class. You've worked hard, driven so many miles; you're worth it. And the top rung of sedans is where you want to be, if you want comfort, space and features that make you feel like a member of the royal family. We have a three-horse race here, where we will see which luxury sedan from among the 2016 Kia Cadenza, the 2016 Hyundai Genesis and the 2016 Nissan Maxima will emerge as the most regal vehicle in all the land. When it comes to design, you'll be in love at first sight with the 2016 Cadenza's bold beehive front grille and available chrome-finished alloy wheels, which stand out from the boxy, bulky designs of the 2016 Genesis and the 2016 Maxima.

When you're in the rarefied air of the luxury class, it's a given you'll have primo power, and all three feature V6 engines with plenty of it: The 2016 Hyundai Genesis heads the list with 311 horsepower, with the 2016 Kia Cadenza and the 2016 Nissan Maxima close behind at 293 HP and 300 HP, respectively. The 2016 Genesis also has a bit more room on the inside with 107.7 cubic feet for passengers, but the 2016 Cadenza is very close behind with 106.8 cubic feet, with the 2016 Maxima a distant third with a compact-like 98.6 cubic feet. It might seem like the 2016 Genesis is the superior ride so far, but we've just given it a sporting chance.

The 2016 Cadenza has the most speakers in base models, with a majestic 12-speaker setup that the Genesis and Maxima can't come close to topping with seven and eight speakers, respectively. In addition, the Cadenza comes standard with heated front seats and also has available ventilated front seats and heated rear seats - no matter the weather outside, you can stay comfortable.  And the 2016 Cadenza is available at a price that is significantly more affordable than the 2016 Genesis, according to suggested retail values.

Viewed by itself, the 2016 Kia Cadenza is already a high-caliber vehicle; when you put it in context next to its peers, it looks even better, thanks to its interior room, solid fuel economy and luxury features, melded with V6 power and Kia's unique design style.
