While the K900 has a V8, rear wheel drive, and a lot more toys. 19" wheels in the V8, 18" available only in the V6 no V6 in the States yet only Canada
The Cadenza has much better gas mileage, no large hump in the rear seat,
front wheel drive is better in snow, It has a touch screen, and plenty of toys.
The couple of things the K900 has not available on the Cadenza, will probably be on the next Cadenza model.
Cadenza is oh so much less expensive, to buy, drive and maintain
$3900.00 for a new LED front light on my K900
Oh for a touch screen in the K900

Saw my first K900 on the road here in Tampa (well, I saw the K9s when I was stationed in Korea), and have to say it looked great. At first I thought it was a Cadenza as it approached, but realized something was different. Love the LED headlights, gives it a unique look.

The hump is a non issue in my K900 and I get decent gas mileage . We are comparing two distinct cars. The Cadenza is a stretched version of the Optima the K900 is its own chassis not a hybrid . The car is great and turns heads especially with the red badges I installed. I have not driven a Cadenza but I owned two optima's .is the value there well always subjective .I love it for sure and I pay the bills .

I love the K900, didn't mean to have it look like I didn't.
Just trying to show that the Cadenza is also a great car.
My last trip in the cadenza we got 28 miles per gallon.
Trip in the K900 was 23.5 MPG.
Cadenza is a good buy for someone who doesn't want,
or can't afford to spend enough for the K900.
I wish we had two K900's. The car is really that good
Only wish it had a touch screen.

both good cars. I'd spend the money again for the K900 over the Cadenza.
Cadenza beats the h__l out of the optima but the K900 is that much better
than the Cadenza . It's the ride I love in the K900, so smooth, and great power.
