2017 Kia Cadenza Is Cheaper Than Previous Generation, Retails From $31,990

Kia has announced the official price list of the new generation Cadenza, which is scheduled to arrive in dealerships across the US later this month.

Offered in three trim levels – Premium, Technology and Limited, the car carries an MSRP of $31,990, which makes it $1,000 cheaper than its predecessor despite the additional standard equipment.

The mid-range flavor comes with Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning, Smart Blind Spot Detection, Surround View Monitor, LED headlights and High Beam Assist for $38,990, while the Limited trim level adds 19-inch alloy wheels with Dark Satin finish, Smart Power Trunk, head-up display (Cadenza-first), Nappa leather seats, and heated outboard rear seats. The top-of-the-line grade asks from $44,390.

Additionally, those looking to further spec their 2017 Kia Cadenzas can go for the optional $3,000 Luxury Package, offered only in Premium models, adding a Harman Kardon premium audio system, HomeLink rearview mirror, Rear Parking Assist, and Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Moreover, the panoramic sunroof is also an option offered on the same grade for an extra $1,000.

Power across the range comes from a revised 3.3-liter V6 petrol engine, rated at 290 HP and 253 lb-ft (343 Nm) of torque, mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

    Volvo called, they want they grille back

    Lovely interior, Audi can be worried.

    $40k for a Kia? Not a chance.

  • sam77

    Is this car a twin for the Hyundai Genesis? The interior is very very similar and outside lines look to be closely matched also.

    • Six Thousand Times

      The Costanza here is a twin of the Azera.

    So happy! I would never buy one, but large near-luxury cars should start in the 30k’s, while large luxury sedans should start in the 50’s. Otherwise it’s just not a good enough deal to buy one of these over an SUV. Buick and Cadillac dominate most competitors in sales thanks to pricing their Lacrosse and XTS in this price range.
