I’ve been considering buying a left over 2020 Cadenza, however none of the closest dealers to me have one to look at. I see a very few at dealers around the State and country. None close enough to go just to check it out.
Two things I can’t see from dealer internet photos.

Does the 2020 have DRL (Daytime Running Lights)?

Does it have Paddle Shifters?

I could phone dealers to ask, but they will tell you anything just to get you to visit them. Don’t want my dealer to make a dealer trade without knowing ahead of time.

Anyone know?

Don't know about the DRL, but I swear someone here said already they removed Paddle shifters and the rear window shade in all models. I knew about the rear window shade, but the paddles is a big mistake to remove.

I think it's a mistake to remove the rear window shade. I use mine all the time! I honestly would consider another car/brand if it didn't have the rear shade.

I totally agree, not only is it nice to have during the day to keep the car dark, but it’s super useful at night when a lifted truck with aftermarket headlights pulls up behind you. I really hope they bring it back

What a disappointment. Checking the online Window Stickers on the
SX Limited.

No DRL listed.
No Paddle Shifters listed.
No Powered Rear Window Shade.
No Rear Sude Window Shades.
It does have a larger touch screen though.

My 2017 has more features.
No reason to trade my perfectly good, trouble free 2018 Regal.

(Did I tell you that I’m so disappointed with the 2020 Limited)?

It all looked so promising. I really like the exterior and interior design (not including the rear, I think that keeps getting worse) but from what it sounds, buying a 2014 limited gives you the same feature list. I’m disappointed as well. Then again, America isn’t doing great right now, maybe i’ll just move on over to Korea:LOL:

Because I’m no longer interested in a (deconteted) 2020, I’ve been browsing for a loaded 2018, which is basically the same as my 2017. In checking AutoTrader, I saw that a Hyundai dealer only 30 miles from me has a Black 2018 SXL with a light beige interior. Never saw that color interior, so,,,,, I decided to drive there to take a look. Car was BEAUTIFUL and that beautiful interior makes it even more beautiful.

Two problems for me.
1. I’ve had two black cars in the past and swore I’d NEVER BUY A BLACK CAR AGAIN.
2. Don’t want to trade a perfectly good loaded 2018 Regal for another 2018.

If it was any color other than black, I may have tried to deal. Blue or white or silver would have been ok.

You can see it on
HyundaiCFL.com and on AutoTrader in Clermont Florida.

If you watch some reviews videos on youtube, and compared the ones from Asian PetrolHead to the ones from the US channels, you would know the US Cadenza is a pretty much water down version from the Korean one. For instant, the instrument display is not a full digital display like in Korean, it's even smaller than 2019 model's. I believe the Korean version still has all 3 rear sunshades, and better yet, they have double laminated windows extend to the rear seats.
