Kia has officially revealed two images of the all-new 2016 Kia Cadenza, or K7 as it is known in South Korea.

The next generation Cadenza gets a new tiger nose front grille and their new trademark four-point LED daytime running lights in the bumper. It also seems to be a slightly bigger car than its predecessor, hinting Kia wants to go more upmarket with the new model. Other exterior features include LED headlights, longer hood and chrome dual exhaust tips.

No engine details were given, but the “3.3” badge could mean it will have the 294 hp 3.3-litre V6 “GDI” engine that is available in the current Cadenza in some markets.

No interior images were revealed, but from the previous teaser image, we can make out it will have a complete new look, with the new infotainment system featuring a bigger screen.

Expect the 2016 Kia Cadenza to go on sale sometime next year in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other GCC countries.

Keep track of the latest prices and updates in the Kia Cadenza buyer guide.

What do you think?



  1. Back to the sharp edges, looks classic.

  2. Side profile and the rear reminds of the Lexus ES… while the interior reminds of BMW… which is not bad…

  3. Looks WOW! Kia is a fascinating story. The design language has matured over time remarkably well. Makes me yearn for one – design wise but the mechanical performance will have to prove itself over the years to come before I would buy one though.
