Man, photos and videos definitely don't do this car justice. Simply stunning.
I wish I wasn't pressed for time when I was at the dealer but just on up close looks alone at my favorite 2016 color combo, the Silky Silver with White Nappa, I'll definitely have to keep my eye out for this car in the near future.
Now I originally stopped by a Kia dealer for some light window shopping/time waster. I came in originally to see a 2016 Optima SXL, which looked great; however, at the fine details, the Cadenza Limited definitely manages to up the ante quite a bit in its premium touches on the interior materials and finish. It's a lot more grown-up and maybe a bit more austere compared to the Optima, but for me, it works.
I didn't have time to actually drive it and while I'm not expecting the Cadenza to be quite as nimble on its feet compared to the new Optima, I'm still interested to find out ultimately from a value perspective, would it still be a smart move to shoot for a used Cadenza or a new Optima SXL. I think value-wise, it might be a complete wash. I'll have to just spend a day and drive both back to back before I could ever make a choice between the two.
I'm definitely sold on the white Nappa interior. Again, looks much better in person. I'm also sold on the Limited trim. I originally thought that the port holes and chrome wheels would look too gaudy. However, it's only when I saw it up close and saw the level of detail that a tremendous amount of tangible and sophisticated style to the car while maintaining austerity.
