The North American International Auto Show continues as Kia has introduced the 2014 Cadenza in Detroit.
Since the model is positioned as a premium car, it comes nicely equipped with leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and a 12-speaker Infinity audio system. There's also an 8-inch touchscreen display with GPS navigation and UVO eServices.
Customers can also order a Premium package which adds Nappa leather seats, a panoramic sunroof and a digital instrument cluster. Other goodies include HID headlights, heated seats and a power tilt / telescoping steering column.
The Cadenza also offers a Technology package with a "water repellant hydrophobic" windshield, a Blind Spot Detection system and 19-inch alloy wheels. There's also an electric parking brake, Advanced Smart Cruise Control and a Lane Departure Warning System.
Motivation is provided by a 3.3-liter GDI V6 engine that develops 293 bhp (218 kW) and 255 lb-ft (345 Nm) of torque. It sends power to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.
The Cadenza will go on sale in the United States in the second quarter of 2013 and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
