With a number of economical options including the Rio, Soul, and Forte, and a lineup of value-oriented crossovers—currently the hottest market trend— Kia has built a foundation to compete with the industry’s major players.

Least Expensive : Kia’s Rio, Soul, and Forte all start under $18,000. The Rio is the least expensive model in Kia’s lineup, followed by the Soul four-door hatchback, and then the Forte.

Sportiest : Even though the Forte Koup SX isn’t a direct competitor to the Honda Civic Si in terms of performance, the Forte Koup’s 201 hp from a 1.6-liter turbo-four should provide enough pep to satiate some buyers.

The Kia Cadenza got a major overhaul for the 2017 model year starting with a new chassis with 50 percent high-strength steel and a longer wheelbase, lower height, and wider stance. Chassis improvements include retuned steering and suspension systems and larger front brakes. New exterior styling includes a new hexagonal grille, Z-shaped details on the headlights and LED taillights, and a sleeker rear roofline. Inside, Kia offers new tech features and available Nappa leather.

The Cadenza is Kia’s front-drive flagship sedan and sits above the midsize Optima, compact Forte, and subcompact Rio, but below the rear-drive, full-size flagship Kia K900 sedan in size and price. The sedan seats five and offers a number of premium options.

Power for the 2017 Kia Cadenza comes from a revised 3.3-liter DOHC V-6 making 290 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque. A new eight-speed automatic transmission sends power to the front wheels. All-wheel drive is not available. The drivetrain combo is EPA-rated 20/28 mpg city/highway.
