2014 BMW 328d vs. 2015 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 BMW 328d, 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 BMW 328d.

Convenience
With the BMW 328d you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Cadenza, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). The BMW 328d is somewhat more expensive 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 BMW 328d is much higher than that for the Kia Cadenza.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 328d is much slimmer than the Kia Cadenza, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 328d, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Cadenza.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 328d transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Kia Cadenza.

Handling
The BMW 328d has about the same turning radius as the Kia Cadenza, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 328d 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 BMW 328d and the Kia Cadenza. The BMW 328d has significantly less cargo room than the Kia Cadenza, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
