2017 Kia Cadenza Trim Levels: Premium vs. Technology vs. Limited


2017 Kia Cadenza Premium Vs 2017 Kia Cadenza Technology Vs 2017 Kia Cadenza Limited

The 2017 Kia Cadenza is an all-new redesign, marking the second generation of a sedan that may be young in age, but is wise beyond its years, with a bold design that is powerful but not ostentatious. Consider the two front grille options, “Diamond Butterfly” and “Intaglio,” both exemplars of calm confidence. Or consider the Cadenza’s sleek roofline and sturdy wheelbase. It’s amazing a vehicle this well-heeled is so affordable, with a price that is a far sight better for your wallet than the standard luxury sedan.

However, with all of the improvements the Cadenza has undergone and the consistent style that has become a hallmark of the Kia line, it comes as no surprise that the Cadenza has upped its fuel economy to 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway while maintaining a powerful engine and also picking up accolades along the way, like an IIHS Top Safety Pick and U.S. News & World Report’s “2017 Best Cars for Families” list in the large car class. But we also want to show off the three separate trim options – Premium vs. Technology vs. Limited – for the 2017 Cadenza so you can hone in on the ideal vehicle for your needs.

The 2017 Kia Cadenza Will Turn Some Heads in Racine WI!

The 2017 Kia Cadenza’s base Premium trim has all the performance and MPG of the other two trims, and also has leather seat accents and features like UVO eServices with a 7-inch touchscreen, so you can see your directions or musical selections with ease.

The next trim up, the Technology, adds features like High Beam Assist, which automatically dims your lights to low beam if the Cadenza detects oncoming traffic, and adds standard Smart Welcome (optional in the Premium trim), which turns on your vehicle’s lights and unfolds your power-fold mirrors so you can see easily as you approach the Cadenza and get going as you wish. Voice-command navigation also comes standard for the Technology trim, as well as the Limited.

Finally, the Limited trim has all of these nice features plus even more luxurious seat trim, with Quilted Nappa Leather, for that truly decadent feel. You also get Head Up Display, which shows information like your current speed or the next direction to your route, on a windshield display.

Before we go, here’s some of the features and specs that all 2017 Kia Cadenza trim levels share:

  • 290 horsepower, 3.3-liter engine.
  • 20 mpg city, 28 mpg highway.
  • 8-speed automatic FWD (front-wheel drive) transmission, the first Kia model to come with it.
