Looks like there was a K7 press event in Korea


Turn on closed captions, then auto translate. Not perfect translation, but better than nothing. Looks like it's getting the side view camera on activation of the turn signals, like the Telluride and Palisade.

Looks good. The big questions for me:
What engine(s) will we get? (and what power level)
Will it still be FWD (I have a hankering for AWD)

I came from Subaru, where everything's AWD, and I quite got used to that AWD traction when driving spiritedly. With my Cadenza and Sedona it's rather easy to chirp or even spin the front tires on acceleration, especially if the road is wet. With AWD you just mash the throttle and go.

Still not a release date. 2020 Genesis G80 and 2020 Sonata, both full redesign's are pushed back until early next year despite having release dates this Fall. Kia should pounce now and get the Cadenza out before those two take the spotlight!

If iím being honest, while i do quite like the front of every cadenza model (especially this new one,) I havenít really liked the rear end since the update in 2017. I feel the original 2014-2016 have the only decent looking rears. Just a personal opinion though.

To add one more opinion..... My 2014 Premium has 110K miles without any problems whatsoever. I still like the look of the 2014-2016 the best - have looked around and nothing on the market looks better to me! And I, for one, do not like the look of the 2020 front grill. The rear looks more like the 2014 to me!

I wonder if they'll offer an alternate grille. Might be a nice option for those who don't like the standard one.

I don't know why you hate this grill...I think it's the best looking feature to date. Even on the first gen, I hated the black OEM, I actually got the OEM Chrome one direct from Kia (ordered it through the K5 Optima store) just to give the front of the car More definition. Then the second gen came out, and I'm pretty sure the grill got smaller. a little better looking, but smaller, and on a car this size it just didn't look right. Now the big grill on a 195 inch long car actually looks right for the first time.
