Kia continues to step up its game, and the Cadenza proves it deserves to be seriously considered by savvy shoppers. The sole engine is a 293-hp 3.3-liter V-6 with a six-speed automatic and front-wheel drive. While the Cadenza may not be a rocket, it does accelerate to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds. Kia hasn’t made performance a priority, but it’s still sufficient, and the upscale interior makes it very comfortable. An all-new Cadenza goes on sale in late 2016, so look for deals on the current model.
