The crowds in New York were bustling with anticipation at the unveiling of our all-new 2017 Cadenza. More elegant and confident than ever, the second generation luxury sedan is a stunning package of refined beauty and technical excellence.




The Cadenza, notably marked by a decisively simple and sleek profile, was born under the design philosophy of President and Chief Design Officer Peter Schreyer who remarked, “Everything we do is about form and function complementing each other to generate an emotional response.” True to his words, the Cadenza embraced upgrades both inside and out, boasting a larger and stronger body, striking exterior accents, spacious cabin and sophisticated performance that generated awe and enthusiasm from spectators.




A modern masterpiece, the all-new Cadenza is scheduled for release in overseas markets by late 2016. Already, the model’s handsome looks and premium upgrades have worldwide fans eager with excitement.






Cadenza’s grand debut at the NYIAS press conference was followed by an age-old Kia tradition, the annual exclusive media reception. This year’s event embraced the theme ‘Modern Eco Zone’ and celebrated the expansion of Kia’s green car line-up. Guests enjoyed an electrifying combination of food, drinks and entertainment and reveled in the breathtaking green car displays that highlight the philosophies of Kia’s EcoDynamics sub-brand.
