The strong and lightweight structure of the Cadenza.

Advanced protection.

From the strong and lightweight Iso-Structure™ construction to the responsive active and passive safety systems, the Cadenza is advanced protection with your safety always in mind.

Masterful control.

Built with active safety technologies that work automatically when you need them, the Cadenza helps keep you on track and in control. Even during harsh road conditions and certain emergency situations.


The ABS, DBC, HAC, and ESC feature in a Cadenza.

An array of active systems to help you stay on course. The Traction Control System (TCS) helps avoid wheel spin when you accelerate, while Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps you stay on course with improved stability. Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) offers increased steering control when driving in harsh road conditions, and Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC) helps keep your vehicle in place as you move off an incline.

Advanced braking provides enhanced control. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps deliver more consistent braking as weight load and distribution change. The Antilock Braking System (ABS) helps reduce skidding, and the Brake Assist System (BAS) senses emergency braking situations and increases braking when needed. Engineered to help keep you on track and in control.
