- Fresh elements of Kia’s evolving design DNA for upgraded sedan

- Host of new comfort, convenience and safety technologies


(SEOUL) October 29, 2012 – Kia’s popular Cadenza large luxury sedan will receive a significant upgrade and a new look for 2013. Based closely on the 2009 model’s styling by Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, and his global design teams, the new-look Cadenza features fresh elements that incorporate Kia’s evolving design DNA.


Echoing some of the visual innovations of Kia’s flagship Kia Quoris sedan (‘K9’ in Korea), the 2013 Cadenza (‘K7’ in Korea) will have a more distinctive appearance with new hood, trunk lid, light clusters (front and rear) and new bumpers, plus side air vents in the front wings and a new interpretation of the brand’s ‘tiger nose’ grille.


Made in Korea, the new-look Cadenza will also feature a host of new comfort, convenience and safety technologies when it goes on sale in different regions of the world during the first half of 2013.
