2014 Kia Cadenza vs. 2015 Hyundai Genesis Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Kia Cadenza offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Hyundai Genesis. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Cadenza, drivers may find the Hyundai Genesis a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Cadenza as you will with the Hyundai Genesis, 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 Kia Cadenza will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Genesis. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Kia Cadenza carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Hyundai Genesis.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Cadenza is much slimmer than the Hyundai Genesis, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Kia Cadenza takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Genesis.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Kia Cadenza doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Genesis.

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

Performance
The Kia Cadenza has less horsepower than the Hyundai Genesis, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Kia Cadenza and the Hyundai Genesis. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Kia Cadenza as you will in the Hyundai Genesis.

Warranty
The Kia Cadenza comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Hyundai Genesis.
