2017 Hyundai Azera vs. 2017 Kia Cadenza

Today, Kia and Hyundai are one of the most sought after auto marques to consider if car buyers are looking for an economical purchase without compromising comfort and safety. The 2017 Kia Cadenza and the 2017 Hyundai Azera may seem to match in many areas, but if you are considering buying the best purchase that gives you value for money, you would be better off with the Hyundai for various reasons. Here’s why.

Design & Style

The Hyundai Azera and the Kia Cadenza both have roughly similar dimensions, with the only major difference being that the Hyundai has more head room and leg room. In terms of design, the Hyundai Azera has a more striking pose, and looks more like a luxury sedan rather than a midsize one. It has a crisp, restrained look which gives it an air of elegance, and certainly beats the Kia Cadenza when it comes to looks.

In the interior, both vehicles can accommodate 5 adults in relative comfort, and both have the same trunk size. A basic Hyundai Azera has many amazing features as standard, and you may find no need to buy more premium trim levels or spend more for options. It has plenty of room as well as high quality trim and appointment which makes it look and feel premium. The Kia’s interior is passable, and is certainly better than many mid-size sedans out there. When compared to the Hyundai’s, however, it looks and feels less graceful and comfortable.

Technology & Safety

Both vehicles come packed with numerous safety and comfort features including multiple airbags, antilock braking systems and stability control systems. the Hyundai trounces the Kia Cadenza by having a detailed interior design, as well as a selection of features which come as standard but which you may need to pay for in the Cadenza. Some of the safety features include a reversing camera, a high-quality navigation system, blind spot alert, and even a cross-traffic alert. The Hyundai has two trim model options.


Both cars have the same turning radius, giving them more or less the same ability to maneuver out of tight spots. However, the Hyundai feels tauter on the road, and gives the driver a feeling of more control. The Hyundai features a gasoline direct injection engine with a 3.3-liter displacement, generating 255 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm and 293 horsepower. This is significantly more than the Kia Cadenza, whose engine produces 290 horsepower and 253 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm from a similar 3.3-liter engine. Though both are closely matched in terms of specs, the Hyundai’s engine is more responsive and slightly more powerful compared to the Kia’s.

The Bottom Line

The Kia and the Hyundai are undeniably very good cars, and you would not regret buying any of them. However, for the best bang for your back, you would be better off with the Hyundai Azera since it offers a lot more and feels more premium compared to the Kia. The best thing about it is that you don’t even have to pay a premium in order to enjoy these benefits. The Hyundai Azera also has more trim options you can choose from.
