2014 Audi A4 vs. 2014 Kia Cadenza Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Cadenza than the Audi A4, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Cadenza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A4 as you will with the Kia Cadenza, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Cadenza. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Audi A4 is much higher than that for the Kia Cadenza.

Dimensions
The Audi A4 is a little narrower than the Kia Cadenza, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Audi A4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Cadenza.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi A4 and the Kia Cadenza do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Audi A4 has a larger turning radius than the Kia Cadenza, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A4 is significantly less powerful than the Kia Cadenza. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A4 and the Kia Cadenza. The Audi A4 has significantly less cargo room than the Kia Cadenza, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi A4 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Cadenza.
