    Alex on Autos - 2017 Kia Cadenza K7 Review and Road Test




    Alex seems to really like the new Cadenza; might come between this and the new LaCrosse for his fave in the segment.

    Wow, YEH. This guy sure knows how to give a briefing. Man, he doesn't slow down, he knows his material, and he doesn't seem to need to breathe! I'll have to find his site. Very professionally done.

    Thanks for posting.

    His report covers a lot of ground, no pun intended. Nice car too.

    I'm impatient. Is this FWD or RWD?

    Yeah, Alex does a great job w/ really comprehensive reviews in a very organized manner.

    Also like the Savagegeese reviews.

    FWD

    For those looking for RWD and sportier overall, the production version of the Kia GT concept is on the way.

    Kia used to build somewhat decent looking vehicles, why is that so flippen' hideous? May well have the worst grill ever produced.

    Yeah, this guy is an automobile enthusiast. His reviews are always very in-depth. This new Kia Cadenza is pretty darn nice...

    People say that about Lexus too. They also say the grille is the best Lexus grille ever. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

    Actually like that grill - need to see in person or video as doesn't translate well to the page.

    And the lower trim model has a diff. grill treatment.

    Yeah, I noticed that during the video. I quite like the grille. It's different, but to me in a good way.

    Is the K900 RWD?

    I could have found out by just typing the question into my address bar but... whatever.

    They do. I haven't heard one good thing yet about any current Lexus front ends.
