Product Overview

Kia Cadenza (code VG) is an affordable mid-size sedan in production from 2009 to 2016, whereupon it received a facelift. It was available with a range of inline-4 and V6 engines that displaced 2.4 to 3.5 liters.
New and used car buyers would likely appreciate the fact that the all-petrol powertrain lineup was 100% naturally-aspirated with proven technologies. The only transmission available was a 6-speed auto that was also a rather robust unit.
Kia has made a good effort in aerodynamics, with a decent 0.28 coefficient of drag to show for it.
