Five-Point Inspection: 2014 Kia Cadenza

Five-Point Inspection: 2014 Kia Cadenza

5. Technology

Beyond the niceties mentioned in Point No. 2, the 2013 Kia Cadenza offers numerous other high-end features. Advanced driver-assistance systems like blind-spot detection and lane-departure warning are available, as is “Advanced Smart Cruise Control,” ASCC for short. This is Kia’s name for adaptive cruise control technology. In traffic it’s capable of completely stopping the car and restarting it again.

WP_20130522_074A power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and electrically operated rear-window shade are also extra-cost add-ons, as is a seven-inch LCD display in the instrument cluster. But there aren’t that many options because, in typical South Korean fashion, the base Cadenza comes extremely well equipped. Base price for the car is a hair less than $36,000.
