2017 Kia Cadenza vs. 2016 Kia Cadenza Features and Specs

When the 2017 Kia Cadenza was unveiled at the New York International Auto Show last month, the stage was set – literally – for an improved premium sedan that already was well-regarded in 2016 models.

We’ll compare the 2017 Kia Cadenza vs. 2016 Kia Cadenza’s features and specs and hopefully get you as excited about the current Cadenza, the upcoming release, or both, as we are.

Wheelbase (inches)

Interior Color Options

Overall, the 2017 Kia Cadenza is a little wider and comes with a cool new grille that is more concave (curving toward the engine), with a re-tuned engine that will get extra miles per gallon compared to the 2016 Cadenza. However, the 2016 Cadenza is a mean machine in its own right, with 293 HP coming from a V6 engine and a 12-speaker audio system, among other luxurious touches. It’s an amazing, spacious, tech-friendly vehicle that is on the lot right now.

Release Date for the 2017 Kia Cadenza

We do not have an exact date for the release of the 2017 Kia Cadenza as of yet, though from everything we’ve seen and read, we anticipate it to be late in 2016 or early in 2017, as the 2016 Cadenza arrived on our lot a few months ago. But whenever we receive updates on the 2017’s release or if anything changes, we will let you know on the Patterson Kia of Wichita Falls blog.
