cadenzaIt is always great when one of your vehicles gets a positive review. But when the praise comes from someone in Detroit – the Motor City itself – it is especially gratifying; so we thought we’d share it with you.

This one comes from longtime automotive columnist Larry Printz of The Detroit News. In a recent column, he recognizes the 2017 Kia Cadenza as one of his favorites.

The Motor City experts have spoken … and Kia wins the day once again. Imagine a brand-new 2017 Kia Cadenza in your driveway, and then stop by Kia of North Grand Rapids for a test drive.
