The 2018 Kia Cadenza makes for an excellent contender in the fullsize sedan class. With 3 trims on offer, the Kia Cadenza has a base MSRP of $32,290, with prices going all the way up to MSRP $44,690, competing directly with the Buick LaCrosse, the Chevrolet Impala, and the Toyota Avalon. Only a 3.3L V6 engine is offered, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Together, they produce 290 horsepower and 253 lb-ft of torque. Accelerating from 0-60 in 6.8 seconds, the Cadenza maintains a combined fuel economy of 23 MPG. Kia offers the Cadenza in 7 stunning colors, with the Platinum Graphite being a particular favorite of ours.
