The 2020 Kia Cadenza: It's Not a Luxury Car, But It Sure Acts Like One

It's true. The handsome, full-size 2020 Kia Cadenza that you can find at Steve Schmitt Kia in Florissant is not really a luxury car, but you can't tell by looking at it. You also can't tell by driving it. People all over the St. Louis area are noticing that the Kia Cadenza comes with performance, safety, and technology features you'd expect on a more expensive luxury model. Want some examples? Allow us to give you a tour.


Starting with the base trim, the standard engine in the new Kia Cadenza is a 3.3-liter V6 that packs a punch, with 290 horsepower. That can take you to St. Peters as quickly as the law allows. The standard eight-speed Sportmatic® transmission harnesses that power with smooth, seamless shifting. The Kia Cadenza also comes with a standard four-wheel independent suspension to help you sail along roadways around St. Charles. The standard front wheel drive gives you better traction.


When you're in reverse, the standard Rear-Camera Display helps you back up more safely. The Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist-Rear, also standard, helps reduce blind spots on the sides and rear, and can apply the brakes if needed. The Parking Distance Warning-Reverse system looks for obstacles behind you and gives you a warning if it senses a collision is coming. Activate the standard Smart Cruise Control and the 2020 Kia Cadenza can not only help you keep a safe distance from the car in front, it can also help keep your Kia Cadenza centered in its lane on highways around Hazelwood.


One luxury feature you'll especially like on the Kia Cadenza is the standard 10-Way Adjustable Driver's Seat with Power Lumbar Support. Your front passenger gets similar VIP treatment with the eight-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, so both of you can fine-tune your seating for maximum relaxation. The standard dual-zone climate control lets both driver and front passenger personalize temperatures for customized, individual comfort zones.


The 2020 Kia Cadenza at Steve Schmitt Kia comes with a standard 12.3-inch Touch Screen Display that lets you add an available UVO link. That extra feature can give you remote climate control, remote lock and unlock and "Find My Car." Subscription fees for the UVO link app are covered for one year from the original retail purchase or lease date. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are standard, giving you an easier, safer way to use the apps on your compatible smart phone hands-free. The standard Multi-Device Bluetooth® Wireless Technology also gives you a hands-free connection to your compatible smartphone. Turn up the volume and fall in love with the dynamic eight-speaker audio.

Taking the Base Trim to a Higher Level.

The Kia Cadenza continues to feel like a luxury car even at the base trim level. For example, would you like to have rich leather seat trim? How about a hand-stitched, leather-wrapped steering wheel? Both are standard. Audio controls are mounted in the steering wheel with easy-access buttons. You can focus on the road, keep your hands on the wheel and easily adjust volume, change channels, or take calls with your Bluetooth® Wireless Technology-enabled phone. If you're open to options, the Kia Cadenza can even impress you when you're nowhere near it. With the available Smart Key, you can start or stop your Kia Cadenza at the push of a button.
