2019 Kia Cadenza vs 2019 Nissan Maxima

2019 Kia Cadenza vs 2019 Nissan Maxima

The 2019 Kia Cadenza is a full-size luxury sedan, also referred to as an executive sedan in the European automotive market. While luxury models are nothing new, the location of the Cadenza within the Kia catalog gives the model a deliberate promise of value weighed against price. Simply put, compared against similarly sized sedans from luxury brands, the 2019 Kia Cadenza offers a vast array of versatile and high-quality features born from the Kia brand to create a unique, distinct, and surprisingly affordable luxury model for consumers.

With its affordable pricing, many luxury models are unfairly matched in terms of cost when compared against the 2019 Kia Cadenza. Coming to a compromise, we’ve chosen the full-size and premium Maxima sedan from the Nissan catalog as a competitor. It’s the 2019 Kia Cadenza vs the 2019 Nissan Maxima!
