  • Made for
    grabbing attention

    Designed to impress

    Sleek and simple, yet still boasting a high-class charisma, the all-new Cadenza is every bit an evolution of our iconic design language. Our signature grille is now handsomely concaved and accentuates the vehicle’s upscale presence — the perfect complement to standard LED lighting.

  • Made for
    every angle

    Something to remember you by

    Whether you’re appreciating the dual exhaust or the rear trunk accents that tie the taillights together, the rear design of the all-new Cadenza is stirring at every glance.

  • Made for
    unique perspectives

    Reflects well on you

    Convenience looks incredible when it comes to the available automatic power folding mirrors. Complete with integrated LED turn signal repeaters, these mirrors will help you see and be seen.

  • Made for
    seeing the light

    Brilliantly designed

    Get the whole picture with dual-function LED headlights and quad LED fog lights. Plus, the new Cadenza sports a stylish Z-shaped lighting signature that makes the amber LED daytime running lights and the LED rear taillights truly unique.

  • Made for
    premium comfort

    Just wait until you get inside

    Immerse yourself in luxury. A premium trim separates the various displays and controls, while stitching accents adorn the wraparound dashboard. From the refined seat patterns to other subtle, driver-focused touches, the all-new 2017 Cadenza is focused when it comes to bringing you the best.

  • Made for
    adaptive control

    Sound decision

    The available 8-inch multimedia interface with navigation1 makes finding your way yet another seamless experience in the Cadenza. Plus, whatever you play during your journey, it’ll sound incredible through the available 12–speaker Harmon/Kardon®5 audio system.

  • Made for
    happy mediums

    Climate just how you like it

    The Cadenza takes your comfort to heart. With dual-zone climate control, heated steering wheel, heated front seats, available heated rear seats and available air-cooled front seats, the temperature inside will be just right.

  • Made for
    the finer things

    No detail too small

    It’s the little touches that truly speak to the upscale nature of the Cadenza. The upholstery is soft to the touch, while the push-button start and steering-wheel bezels have been refined with polished metal accents. The clock is even analogue, offering an understated elegance to the dash.

Made for keeping an eye out

The available Smart Blind-Spot Detection (SBSD) helps locate vehicles in your blind spot. It will also warn you when it detects your vehicle switching lanes unintentionally, and, in certain cases, will apply localized braking pressure to help guide your vehicle back into its lane.

Made for what matters

We’ve got your back — and everything else, for that matter. Dual front airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, dual front seat-mounted side airbags and a driver-side knee airbag are ready to respond if necessary. Keeping it all together is high-tensile strength steel, which provides excellent crash protection.

Made for always in control

Active safety features like hill-start assist, electronic stability control, and vehicle stability management come standard. They help the Cadenza stay under control when the going gets tough.
