Hello, I have been looking to purchase a KIA Cadenza, I presently have a 2013 Dodge Dart Limited Special Edition. Can someone explain the difference between a Cadenza Limited and a Cadenza SXL Limited? Thanks in advance for your replies.

Thank you for pointing me to the KIA web page, I have been there before, however there is no mention of a Limited SXL. just Premium and Limited, is the Limited and SXL the same? I understand you can add to the Premium a Luxury package but can no longer add the Tech package to the Premium. Is this true? and if so how can that be if there is only a 2014 model.
I ask this of all you, because the two KIA dealerships I visited cannot answer these questions for me. Forgot to mention, I am not new to KIA, I also have KIA Optima 2012 Hybrid, Snow White Pearl / Black/ Gray Trim.
Thanks Again for your understanding and replies.

I'm no Kia expert but from my research and talking to dealerships..Kia had an identity crisis with this car. First it came out with just the Kia and two packages you could add to it - luxury and tech. They all came with those thin slit rims. Then a few months in, they decided to make 2 versions of the cadenze and call one Premium and one limited. You can add the luxury package to the Premium one and the Limited already comes with the luxury features. The Limited also contains ventilated seats, HID's and blind spot, plus advanced cruise control - stuff that you cannot get on the Premium. Also they came out with a different rim for the Premium, and a chromed one for the limited. You can not longer get the thin slit rims on any of the cadenzas made in the second half of production. Regarding your SXL - I don't even know where that comes into play. that's just all the research i've done. Someone can correct a lot of the stuff I said - i think I'm right, and no one was really helping you much so I thought I'd try. best of luck in your hunt. I'm on the fence about buying one myself.

SXL is the limited. If it is in your budget, get the SLX. SLX comes with the 19's chrome rims, LED Fog lights, auto sun shades, and alot of other nice features. You can't go wrong with the Cadenza. I love my Kia..

Yup, pissed about this ****. Mean's my "fully loaded" doesn't have **** in it, yet I paid the same price as someone who did. Plus my service department blows fat donkey balls, can't wait to find something I want enough to unload this thing. Good for the new buyers, horrible for the OG's.

Ok!!! Thanks this clears up my question. So, I have seen Cadenzas on the lot with a build date of March and May 2013. Would this be before the model identity change? You thoughts please.

Best way to tell is looking at the features. If it has 19" chrome wheels, passenger side ventilated seat, LED foglights, and SXL badging, it's the revamped version.
