2014 Honda Accord Hybrid vs. 2014 Kia Cadenza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Accord Hybrid offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Kia Cadenza. The Kia Cadenza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Accord Hybrid.

Convenience
With the Honda Accord Hybrid 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Accord Hybrid 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 Honda Accord Hybrid and the Kia Cadenza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Accord Hybrid is about the same width as the Kia Cadenza. When looking at overall length, the Honda Accord Hybrid takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Cadenza.

Drivetrain
The Honda Accord Hybrid has much less torque than the Kia Cadenza, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda Accord Hybrid 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 Honda Accord Hybrid 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 Honda Accord Hybrid and the Kia Cadenza. The Honda Accord Hybrid 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 Honda Accord Hybrid is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Cadenza.
