2017 Kia Cadenza vs 2017 Nissan Maxima in Tallahassee, FL

2017 Kia Cadenza vs 2017 Nissan Maxima in Tallahassee, FL

Vehicle shown above is the 2017 Kia Cadenza Limited.

There’s nothing quite like finding the vehicle that perfectly suits you. In the sea of sedans that are currently out on the market, however, deciding which one is the ideal match may prove difficult. To lend you a hand in your research, we at Kia of Tallahassee put two of the top contenders in the full-size sedan segment into the ring to see which one prevails supreme, the 2017 Kia Cadenza or the 2017 Nissan Maxima.

In round one of our head-to-head battle, we’ll take a look at technology. This category is largely represented in current vehicles, and having the latest systems is sometimes what makes or breaks a sale. With these two sedans, though, there’s only one that has a bit more to offer: the Cadenza. As an optional feature in the 2017 Cadenza, you can spring for the Head Up Display, which projects vital vehicle information, such as MPH and directions, onto the windshield directly in your line of sight for easy viewing. Also offered in the Kia Cadenza is available wireless charging, which lets you power up your compatible device while on the go sans the mess of cords. If you’re in the Nissan Maxima, you won’t have access to either of these features in any trim level.

So far, the Maxima is down for the count. The next area in which we’ll discuss in this comparison is interior amenities. Although the Nissan Maxima tries with all of its might to catch up, it simply falls short. While the Maxima comes standard with a 12-volt power outlet, the Cadenza does one better by equipping two 12-volt outlets as standard, letting you charge double the devices at once. Comfort is crucial for any driver, and the 2017 Cadenza fully delivers with its standard 10-way power-adjustable seat. The Maxima only offers an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. What’s more, the Cadenza even outfits a 14-way power-adjustable function in top trims, nearly doubling what the Maxima offers as standard.

Commodious Cabin of the Cadenza

The punches keep on coming for the Nissan Maxima, who continues to succumb to the Cadenza when it comes to interior volume. Whether it’s just you in the car or you have your whole family along for the ride, you’ll have no trouble finding comfort with the Kia Cadenza’s 107.8 cubic ft. of passenger volume. Those in the Maxima will feel heavily restricted, as it offers just 96.9 cubic ft. of passenger room. This same extreme difference in space is found in terms of cargo volume. The Nissan Maxima features a respectable 14.3 cubic ft. of cargo space1, but it is ultimately overruled by the Cadenza’s commodious 16 cubic ft. of total storage room2.

Not only does this matchup between the 2017 Kia Cadenza vs 2017 Nissan Maxima in Tallahassee, FL, prove the Cadenza’s worth, but it also shines a light onto what this full-size sedan is all about.

Overall, I received wonderful service from the Service Department. They fixed a pesky and persistent issue I was having with my Kia. Teena, Billy, and the rest of the staff that I corresponded with were professional, personable, and showed genuine concern for my vehicle. Kia of Tallahassee has been very easy to work with regarding warranty-related items. They have ensured a repeat customer and value my feedback as a customer. Thank you for the great work that you do!

I have a Hyundai but I come here since I am not too fond of my dealership, although they are now under new management. Particularly Kia Service Center, they go above and beyond to service my oil change needs. I have been going to them for the past 3 years at first with maintenance warranty. I'm so satisfied that I will even purchase my new set of tires from them soon. Although they tend to get busy too, you would never get the rushed feeling from them. Their employees look happy to be there, which makes it even a good environment to wait around. I hope your management team gives everyone there a raise. You guys deserve it. Thanks for being a good dealership. I just wish you were selling Hyundai too.
