Design

Bold lines.

A premium sedan’s exterior should be as sophisticated as the technology it houses. With its bold lines and luxury features, the Cadenza exudes confidence from every angle and inspires its drivers to arrive with the same demeanor.

Design

Distinctive features.

With its sleek, yet muscular design, the Cadenza demands attention with features like its available 19-inch machined-finish alloy wheels, tasteful chrome accents and a large, distinctive signature grille.

Design

Brighter driving.

Lighting your way is an available adaptive front lighting system that works in conjunction with the available HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlights to deliver a beam path that responds to steering angle as well as road pitch.

Comfort

Your personal sanctuary.

Graced with superior craftsmanship, fine materials, and sophisticated amenities reserved for the world’s most luxurious automobiles, the Cadenza is designed to satisfy the most sophisticated driver and indulge passengers with the highest of expectations with its driver centric cockpit and tastefully appointed cabin.

Comfort

Touch of luxury.

Our recipe for achieving first-class accommodations is simple. Start with spacious seating in a roomy cabin and then appoint it with luxurious materials such as chrome accents, beautiful wood-grain style trim and available Nappa leather. Finally, provide an ideal balance of comfort and support with power adjustable front seats. Expect to enjoy a very relaxing journey in the Cadenza.

Comfort

The power of light.

Brighten your drive with the available panoramic sunroof that provides an excellent view from every seat. However, if you want to escape the bright sun on those hot days, a power retractable sunshade is included for enhanced convenience. Rear-seat passengers can also enjoy a cool and comfortable drive with an available power rear-window sunshade.

Comfort

Climate control.

When you live in a climate as diverse as Canada’s, comfort doesn’t come easy. That’s why the Cadenza comes equipped with available heated seats as well as available air-cooled front seats, so you can achieve the highest level of comfort year round. During those colder months, driving is made even more comfortable with the available heated steering wheel.

Innovation

Controls made easy.

What could be simpler than using your voice or a touch screen to control the onboard navigation and entertainment systems? The Cadenza utilizes the latest technology to elevate every aspect of your driving experience.

Innovation

You’re in command.

Using your voice, or a bright 8-inch LCD touch screen, you have command of the onboard navigation6, entertainment systems and functions with precise control. The interface provides hands-free connectivity for your Bluetooth®1 devices, as well as digital streaming from your iPod®2 that you can enjoy through the fully integrated, premium 12-speaker Infinity™3 surround-sound audio system.

Innovation

Simply on.

With the Cadenza, we’ve simplified every interaction you have with the car. So instead of fumbling for your key, you can simply press a button to start the engine. On top of that, Cadenza’s welcome lighting system greets you as you approach with the key in your pocket. Exterior light accents illuminate to provide extra visibility, especially at night.

Innovation

Driving made easy.

The available Advanced Smart Cruise Control system on the Cadenza, takes conventional cruise control one step further. Its distinct advantage is when the sensor system detects a vehicle ahead of you and adjusts the braking and acceleration to adapt to the changing speed of traffic. For you, it’s driving made easy4.

Innovation

Your co-pilot.

Impressive radar technology has been added to help you stay on course and in control. An available Blind Spot Detection System monitors lanes beside the Cadenza to detect approaching vehicles, informing drivers with a visual alert in the side view mirror. The available Lane Departure Warning System will also alert you if you were to drift out of your lane without using the turn signal4.

Safety

Proactive safety.

The Cadenza is equipped with a series of advanced active safety systems that work together to help give you a proactive layer of defence. An Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system controls the engine and brakes to help keep you on course during emergency manoeuvres, while a Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system adds steering direction control5.

Disclaimer
Safety

Unavoidable protection.

Despite all of the advanced active safety systems equipped on the Cadenza, some collisions may be unavoidable. That’s why the body structure of the Cadenza is reinforced with extensive amounts of high-strength, tensile steel to help absorb the impact. Inside, the Cadenza is further protected by eight advanced airbags including dual front, front and rear seat-mounted side, and full-length side-curtain airbags.

Safety

Advancing stopping power.

When you press the brake pedal in the Cadenza, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) maintains more consistent and balanced brake pressure as vehicle loads change. If emergency braking is detected, a Brake Assist System instantly applies full braking force to stop you sooner. And to help keep you from rolling back, Hill Assist Control (HAC) holds the brakes while you switch pedals to the accelerator.

Safety

All clear.

Shift the Cadenza into reverse and the multimedia interface automatically displays the high-resolution picture from the rearview5 camera with parking assist lines. To make backing up into parking spots even easier, a backup warning system plays an audible tone, in increasing tempo, as you approach any object in your way.

Drive

Inspiring performance.

Underpinning the Cadenza’s stylish exterior and interior design is a robust, advanced powertrain that provides outstanding dependability and dynamic performance you can rely on under any driving condition. With its powerful drivetrain, a well-engineered, reinforced body frame, and a direct and communicative steering system, the Cadenza promises both luxurious comfort and impressive capability from a premium-level sedan.

Drive

Dynamic power.

Powered by a fuel efficient, lightweight V6 engine generating a maximum 293-horsepower, the Cadenza’s dynamic driving characteristics and advanced technology is what sets it apart from the competition. Controlling this power is a six-speed Sportmatic® transmission that allows you to choose between automatic mode or sportier, clutch-free manual shifting with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
