Kia released their new flagship model, the 2011 Cadenza. It is a full-size sedan that looks good, is comfortable and feels well made, with a strong engine and gearbox combination and plenty of interior space.

2011 Cadenza’s power comes from a 3.5-litre V6 engine that develops 286bhp and is attached to a six-speed automatic gearbox. The motor is a strong one and gives the Cadenza plenty of punch at all speeds. The gearbox is also decent, anticipating gear changes well and shifting quickly and smoothly. The only niggle is with the gearbox in manual mode. The model stands on attractively designed 17-inch alloy wheels and comes equipped with a plethora of standard safety features, including 8-airbags, ABS brakes and Electronic Stability Control and active front head rests.

The car is very comfortable, with plenty of style and space inside. The driving position is a good one thanks to multi-way adjustable power seats and steering column, although we’d prefer the seat to go a fraction lower for taller drivers. Rear seat passengers get plenty of leg and head room. Some attractive and unique interior lighting gives the cabin a touch of class.

The all new Kia is one of only three automakers whose year-over-year U.S. sales went up in 2009, not down. The others are parent Hyundai and, a bit surprising to us, Subaru.
