2016 Kia Cadenza/K7 unveiled

Article by Christian A., on December 1, 2015

Known as K7, the all-new Kia Cadenza meant for the Korean domestic market has been given an updated exterior styling by Kia Motors as revealed in the first official photos of the new model. The new design is powerful and demonstrates high quality interiors and modern luxury as it will be released for sale in 2016 for the overseas market.

The current model’s progressive and contemporary look has been preserved in the 2016 Cadenza but sharper lines and a well-defined wider stance have given the new version a unique and trendy personality. This new design statement is effective in making the new Cadenza recognizable as a Kia model.

The new Cadenza has a European luxury sedan styling that’s depicted in its long bonnet, swept back roofline and gently rising shoulder line that give the car a long sleek posture.

A more ‘forward-lean’ stance has been provided by a sharply tapering window line which slightly draws backward towards the cabin back and curves up sharply to meet the C-Pillar.

The signature ‘tiger-nose’ grille has been reinterpreted. In addition, its look is updated with sharp wraparound LED headlamps and muscular fenders.

Similarly, the rear of the car has distinct lines with wide LED lamps with chrome detailing, squared off bumpers, twin exhausts and bold styling curves that provide a wider appearance and a more aggressive style.
