    Spying: Kia Cadenza

    Kia hasn't had a flagship since the unloved Amanti left years ago. Since that time, Kia has been looking what could take the place of it. The answer could be the new Cadenza which has been caught in spy pictures undergoing some hot weather testing.

    Looking the past the camouflage Kia has used on this mule, the Cadenza looks to be a slightly larger Optima sedan, with a similar shape in the windows, profile, and nose.

    Also, there are some pictures of the interior which include stitched dash cover, central clock, chrome accents, and a large screen for the infotainment system.

    The Cadenza will be mechanically similar to the Hyundai Azera, so that means a 3.3L V6 producing 293 HP and a six-speed automatic.

    The Cadenza will likely carry a base price somewhere in the mid to high $30s and come out sometime next summer as a 2014 model.

    Interesting layout, reminds me of the Chevy's. I do not see this as a luxury car, but just a normal Chevy competition.
