KIA REVEALS 2020 CADENZA AT THE CHICAGO AUTO SHOW
Kia Motors America unveiled the refreshed 2020 Cadenza premium sedan during the 2020 Chicago Auto Show. With new design elements, technology and available convenience features, the 2020 Cadenza offers luxurious trappings combined with a quiet and composed ride.
"The Cadenza continues to introduce new and luxury-minded customers to the Kia brand," said Michael Cole, president, Kia Motors America. "We recognize there are many customers who don't want or need an SUV, but still desire a vehicle with plentiful interior room and a large trunk. The Cadenza is the perfect choice for these people and the refreshed 2020 model is well-suited to their needs."
Exterior enhancements include a redesigned hood and grille with deeper vertical waterfall fascia; standard multi-lens LED headlights with redesigned LED DRL lamps; new lower front fascia with integrated turn signals; redesigned rear bumper and trunk lid; new LED combination rear taillights; redesigned 18-inch (standard) and 19-inch wheels (available).
On the inside, the Cadenza features a completely redesigned dash and instrument cluster with relocated audio controls above the climate switchgear; standard 4.2-inch TFT color screen in the instrument panel; new 12.3-inch touchscreen with multi-device Bluetooth connectivity as standard; new available multi-color ambient LED mood lighting (Limited only); two new Napa leather-trimmed seating colors: Saddle Brown and Gray, with Limited models; three additional USB charging ports; enhanced 10-watt wireless fast-charging phone charger; and new standard Smart Key with remote Engine Start.
Moreover, Drive Wise, Kia's advanced suite of driver-assisted technology provides new standard features including:
New standard "Sensor Fusion" combines Forward Collision Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with pedestrian/cyclist detection, Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go and High Beam Assist
Lane Following Assist follows visible lane markings or a preceding vehicle and provides steering inputs to maintain the vehicle's position in the lane
Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist - Rear with Lane Change Assist
Highway Driving Assist uses federal highway speed limit information to automatically adjust vehicle speed to be within the posted speed limit
Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control - Curve uses navigation data to lower the vehicle's speed proactively before upcoming curves
Safe Exit Assist alerts the driver or passenger opening their door to not exit the vehicle when approaching traffic is detected
The all-aluminum engine delivers 290 horsepower to the front wheels through an 8-speed electronically controlled Sportmatic transmission. NVH improvements include reinforced rear sub-frame cross members and resonator wheels (19-inch only) helping to reduce road noise entering the cabin. Redesigned shock valves reduce vibration and larger rear dampers improve rebound over rough surfaces.
The 2020 Cadenza will be available in two trims: Technology and Limited. Pricing will be announced closer to the vehicle's on-sale date later this year.
