Vehicle Description

The 2019 Kia Cadenza is a completely new vehicle, one of the latest redesigns to hit showroom floors. It features a bold new appearance to go with Kia's philosophy of offering more features for less money than the competition. As a full-size sedan, there's no arguing that the Cadenza has plenty of comforts and high-tech features to recommend it. See it today at Joey Griffin Kia.

Trim Levels (Exterior)

The 2019 Cadenza comes in three trim levels: Premium, Technology, and Limited. The Premium trim kicks things off with an MSRP of $31,990 and a feature list that includes heated side mirrors, automatic headlights, and a 7-inch touchscreen with UVO eServices. The Technology improves on this with an 8-inch display and voice-command navigation, a Harman Kardon 12-speaker sound system, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Finally, the Premium adds all the extra touches like a Surround View Monitor, a head-up display that projects vehicle information onto your windshield, and quilted Nappa leather seats.

Engine Power

Every 2019 Kia Cadenza model runs on a 3.3-liter V6 engine that offers 290 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque. The engine's transmission is an advanced eight-speed electronic automatic, and it comes with a Sportmatic manual shift mode and Smart Shift and Drive, which can automatically switch between the Cadenza's three driving modes based on your current style. Thanks to this transmission and the engine's direct-injection system, the Cadenza gets an EPA-rated 20 city and 28 highway mpg.


The 2019 redesign has made the new Cadenza both lighter and stiffer than the first-generation models. This means it can accelerate faster and it doesn't sway as much as you move through corners, making it much more fun to drive. Of course, you can expect a different driving experience depending on which drive mode you're in: ECO, Normal, or Sport. By choosing Sport mode and using the steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters that come standard on the Technology and Limited trims, you can experience much more acceleration and power than you'd get out of a smaller compact or midsize sedan.


You can find plenty of comforts in a 2019 Kia Cadenza. In a fully upgraded model, you'll get heated front and rear seats, ventilated front seats, a 14-way adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support, and a 10-way adjustable front passenger seat. The Cadenza Limited even comes with power sunshades for the back and rear door windows. As for technology, every model comes with a keyless lock system and push-button start; on the Limited, the power trunk will open automatically when you stand behind your car.

Safety Features

Basic safety features present on every 2019 Cadenza include seven air bags, traction control, Vehicle Stability Management, and doors that unlock automatically after a serious collision. Available features include a smart blind-spot detection system, a rear cross-traffic alert, Advanced Smart Cruise Control with Autonomous Emergency Braking, and a lane departure warning system with a lane change assist that will gently steer you back within the lines if it detects that you're getting too close to one side without using your turn signal.

Over 20 years of satisfied owners

“We were passing through looking at new cars and due to the excellent advice and service at Joey Griffin Kia, we are the proud owners of a 2017 Kia Cadenza! We are a very satisfied customer.”

Ricky & Joann

“Searched around for the right ride for my wife and found it at Joey Griffin Kia. We have had our car for a couple of months now and we know we made the perfect choice of car and dealership. The staff was very patient, polite and professional – when it’s time to buy again, Joey Griffin Kia will be our first stop. Thanks for being so great!”


“I’ve always been afraid of taking my car to dealerships for repairs, simply because of the dealership repair prices. But I have an extended warranty on my Optima and I didn’t want to chance having it voided, so I took it to my local Kia dealership. I scheduled an appointment and they kept me posted about everything that was going on. The mechanics took their time and attended to my car needs. And it wasn’t as expensive as I thought. I’ll definitely be back!”


“We will never forget the kindness you showed toward us when purchasing our new Kia Optima. You have a great staff including your service/parts department. You all made us feel welcomed and a part of your family.”

Harold & Leslie

“Thank you for the kind and easy purchase experience as well as the care you have given to our father. We will recommend your dealership to everyone we know.”


“Great people and fantastic customer service! They have a new customer for life!”


“We have purchased two from you and we appreciate how professional and helpful you were when choosing the right vehicle for our needs. You went out of your way to make sure our experience was a pleasant one.”
