I am disappointed in the colors of this car ( Cadenza ).

Exterior Colors

Satin Metal
Snow White Pearl
Bright Silver
Aurora Black
Platinum Graphite

Where is the red ? blue ?

Not too long ago, Kia introduced the Optima SXL in basic similar colors. Soon thereafter, without notice, they were delivering reds and blues to the dealers. This may well happen with the Cadenza. Those who bought the Optima SXLs in those "additional" colors feel as though they have something special. Kia does listen to customer demand, so maybe they will "throw us a bone" and put some additional colors out there..."special" or not.

There is something called Smokey Blue on the website. Red is an odd omission. It seems Kia is going for a very monochromatic color scheme for their Cadenza.

I almost bought Satin Metal but because it has beige tone in it I decided not to do so... I don't like golden colors:)...defenitly will consider that color if they put more gray in it as Audi does.

I like Platinum Graphite but I have Optima in that color and it would be weird to have 2 cars in the same color.

Black one reminds me my BMW 750Li I had 3 years ago... and I thought it's too much for Cadenza...decided to save it for my next car Quoris :))

I never thought about White color as always had feeling that this is exclusive for ladies...but when I saw how perfectly it match with White leather package... I bought it

When I bought my car I had to choose between a Aurora Black version and a Snow White Pearl version as those were the only cars with everything in them.

As it was only two hours earlier I bought my wife a white Optima I went with the Aurora Black car. A good thing is that the Aurora Black paint job is so heavily flaked it doesn't look so black when lights are hitting it at night or the sun in daylight.
You have to see it to understand.

I did see all the available colors but in my opinion the Snow White Pearl version with the white package looks great and I think it's the best looking combination.

Congratulations on the purchase.

My Cadenza and my Sorento will both be Platinum graphite. I thought the same way as you, Aloukienko, but then I got to thinking "I'll only be driving one of them at a time". I almost decided on white for the Sorento, though, it's a very pretty color. I'm envious of those of you who already have yours...

Thanks Guy and John.
Initially I thought about beige interior but it doesn't have wooden inserts on door switches and beige plastic looks cheap that's why I bought white package which gives you extra plush on headliner too.

Andrei,

...the white interior looks totally bitchin', but I would be afraid that it would get dirty so easily. I guess that's the risk you take for an awesome and elegant look. I agree, the headliner is awesome, too. I also agree on the black plastic looking better, and various pieces in tan/beige don't always match one to another. Good (and brave) choice, though, with the white package!
