2015 Kia Cadenza vs. 2015 Volkswagen CC Review

Comparison Review

The Kia Cadenza offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volkswagen CC with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Kia Cadenza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen CC.

The Volkswagen CC requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Kia Cadenza, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Volkswagen CC. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Kia Cadenza will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volkswagen CC.

The Kia Cadenza is about the same width as the Volkswagen CC. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Kia Cadenza, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen CC.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Kia Cadenza transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volkswagen CC.

The Kia Cadenza has a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen CC, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Cadenza has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen CC. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Kia Cadenza and the Volkswagen CC. The Kia Cadenza has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volkswagen CC.

You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Cadenza than that of the Volkswagen CC.
