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.

Small location with small offerings. The Service Department is fantastic! You are immediately greeted. They keep you informed and they provide fast warranty and recall service. VERY user friendly and affordable. I've lived in Las Vegas and Orlando prior to moving here. All KIA Service Departments have been great. I have to admit this location was superior to the others.

I arrived at 5pm to just see if I would be able to get something new. I left in the late hours of the night with a new 2017 Kia Soul. I am absolutely pleased with everything. The staff worked with me to get me in payments I could afford and in a new car that is awesome. I recommend Kia Tallahassee to anyone.

The staff was very friendly. I was just not told up front everythin that I needed to take with me in order to close the deal. It took us a while to sign the paper work but other than that I have no complaints. This is the 2nd vehicle we have purchased from Kia of Tallahassee.

I wish I could say my customer service was the same as some of the posts on here! What started out as a day long ordeal with sales to getting left hanging once I made the purchase on a used vehicle. I called the manager after a month long ordeal with a surgery and he to this day has not returned my call for 2 service problems I have with my car! I will find another Kia who is hopefully more helpful
