2017 Kia Cadenza Available Features: Pros
YearComment
2017 With the 2014 Cadenza I selected "feature availability" as a reason to buy the Kia. I especially appreciated the around-view camera system, which wasn't (and still isn't) often offered in sedans under $50,000 (though the Maxima also offers one). You can get even more features on the 2017--about $2,500 worth even though the car's sticker price has increased by only $350. Additional content on a 2017 Cadenza Limited includes automatic braking, forward collision warning, auto-dimming LED headlights, a head-up display, a power trunk opener with a proximity sensor (stand near the rear bumper for a few seconds and the trunk opens automatically), support for Android Auto and Apple Carplay, and the aforementioned additional seat adjustments. Compared to a top-of-the-line Nissan Maxima Platinum, the tested Cadenza includes about $3,350 in additional content. Even the mid-level Cadenza includes more features than the top-trim Maxima. You can get features on the Buick LaCrosse that you can't get on the Cadenza, though. Most notable: all-wheel-drive and a rear seat that folds to expand the trunk. The LaCrosse also offers adaptive suspension dampers, lane departure prevention, forward obstacle detection (less necessary in the Kia since the view forward is so open), a semi-automated parking system (does anyone use these much?), the OnStar telematics system, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, remote start, massaging front seats, and headlights that swivel in turns (though these are xenon rather than LEDs). Not that the Kia Cadenza doesn't offer features you cannot get on the Buick, including many of those added for 2017, plus the around-view camera system and (surprisingly not offered on the Buick) rear seat heaters. Tabulate all of the feature differences, and they cancel out. Since there are so many things available on the Buick that you cannot get on the Kia, the latter's feature availability advantage isn't what it was three years ago. It'll come down to which features you most want to have. The Cadenza's largest feature advantage could be the Limited's interior materials, specifically the unusually smooth, soft,, and supple (for this segment) nappa leather on its seats and center armrest and the synthetic suede that covers its pillars and headliner. (Some reviews claims that leather also covers the instrument panel, but this is clearly not the case, and they door panel upholstery seems to be synthetic.) Such materials are typically only offered on much more expensive cars. Buick offered an Ultra Luxury Package with comparable interior materials on the 2014-2016 LaCrosse for $2,495, but offers no such package on the 2017. Maybe they'll add it later? Aside from the seats and headliner, the Cadenza's interior materials are, like the Buick's, somewhat better than you'll find in the typical midsize sedan, but are not a match for those employed by premium brands. see full Kia Cadenza review
