A quiet car is important. I consider my cars as my "escape" from everything else, I love driving and it's like a therapeutic thing to me haha. But how quiet is the Cadenza? is it as quiet as say the... buick verano?Being an old guy, I was not interested in the tech. package, and because I have a dog and cat, not interested in the white interior. I can see value in the blind spot feature but the other stuff seemed like fluff to me. The car has plenty technology in the regular Premium package. I chose the car because of the nice, quiet ride, aggressive looks and the tons of stuff that came with the basic Premium package. All the other things included in the two available packages might have value for some but you certainly won't think you bought a car without futuristic stuff when you drive a Premium Cadenza.
