After taking center stage at the New York International Auto Show in March 2016, the 2017 Kia Cadenza was found by attendees to have a great range of family-friendly features and improvements. Here are five of those features that make the 2017 Cadenza a great selection for families.
Aggressively Handsome Exterior, Elegant and Comfortable Interior
The 2017 Kia Cadenza has a distinctive road presence. It’s sharper exterior detailing is nestled among the crisp, clean lines that define the body. The impression is both powerful and modern.
The interior boasts higher quality craftsmanship and materials. The cabin is wrapped in soft, touchable leather. Nappa leather is also available in a diamond-stitch pattern, which gives the interior an even more regal impression and ever more luxurious drive. Both varieties of leather are easy to clean.
Stronger External Panels and Other Safety Measures
The dent panels of this iteration of the Kia Cadenza have been improved in strength and density. This not only increases the safety of the vehicle, but the stiffness also improves the drive. The 2017 Cadenza features a lot of hot stamped components which improve the tensile strength of the vehicle, but a light weight is still maintained by the tactical use of aluminum instead of steel in places were steel isn’t necessary, like the front steering knuckles.
The Cadenza also includes a forward collision warning and a new and improved shock absorption feature called a Hydraulic Rebound Stopper. This makes the ride smoother not only for the driver, but for the passengers as well. A family can travel in this vehicle feeling both stylish and secure.
Quiet, Secure Ride
Laminate in the front windows and a full floor panel beneath ensure that passengers only have to deal with noise from each other, and not noise from wind or the road. Such a quiet environment is great for filling up with your favorite music–Clari-Fi music improvement technology is an option for the soundsystem included with the vehicle.

Up-To-Date Cockpit Technology
One of the more exciting new features of the 2017 Kia Cadenza is the Head Up Display, which provides information to the driver like turn-by-turn directions directly on the windshield in the driver’s line of sight. That hugely reduces headaches from operating a GPS, or naming the front-seat passenger as the “navigator”.
The Cadenza has a revised version of the Kia 3.3 liter V6 engine that’s built for the concerns of a modern family: fuel economy and durability. At full power and full load, running the Cadenza for 41 consecutive days equates to 100,000 miles of use for its owner.
Do you like what see! Good, you should visit your local dealer later this year to test drive the 2017 Kia Cadenza.
