The Chicago Auto Show is one of the largest exhibitions of its kind in this country.

Kia’s stand welcomed visitors to see our award-winning lineup. In fact, the Telluride received a few more awards to go on the trophy shelf. The television show, MotorWeek, gave the Telluride one of their Driver’s Choice Awards for its class. The Niro also received one from host and series creator John Davis, as well. The Midwest Automotive Media Association awarded their Family Car of The Year to the Telluride, as well. Lastly, the Victory & Reseda website presented their Vehicle of The Year award for the Telluride, thanks to a public vote on their website.

We even showed off our three biggest awards at our stand: The Motor Trend SUV of the Year, the North American Utility of the Year, and the Car and Driver 10Best award. You can say that the hottest SUV in its class got a lot of attention during its run at the Chicago Auto Show.

However, the biggest news from our stand was the introduction of the redesigned 2020 Cadenza luxury sedan. It will arrive soon to Kia of Mankato with a sharper design, new driver assistance and technology features, and an improved interior designed for better driver engagement.

Up front, you will notice a redesigned hood and grille with deeper vertical waterfall fascia. The new grille is flanked by a set of standard multi-lens LED headlights with redesigned LED DRL lamps. There is also a new lower front fascia with integrated turn signals. In the rear, you will find a redesigned bumper and trunk lid, with a new set of LED combination rear tail lights. Finishing up the look are some redesigned standard 18-inch alloy wheels, with a new set of available 19-inch wheels.

The big news for the 2020 Cadenza is a completely redesigned dash and instrument cluster with relocated audio controls above the climate switchgear. Inside the cluster is a standard 4.2-inch TFT color information screen available for easier readouts. Above the relocated audio controls is a new 12.3-inch touchscreen with multi-device Bluetooth connectivity is standard. The infotainment system offers three additional USB charging ports throughout the cabin, plus an enhanced 10-watt wireless fast-charging phone charger.

The Cadenza has always offered a level of luxury that is attainable while giving an air of a car priced much more. That luxury now includes a new available multi-color ambient LED mood lighting for the Limited model. Plus, you can select two new nappa leather-trimmed seating colors: Saddle Brown and Gray, with Limited models offering quilted seat bolsters. To finish up, the Cadenza now comes with a new standard Smart Key with remote Engine Start.

In an effort to improve occupant and vehicle safety, the 2020 Cadenza adds new features to our Drive Wise suite of driver-assisted technologies. These new standard features include a “Sensor Fusion” that combines Forward Collision Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with pedestrian/cyclist detection, Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go and High Beam Assist. Other new features include Lane Following Assist, Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist – Rear with Lane Change Assist, Highway Driving Assist, Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control, and Safe Exit Assist.

The redesigned 2020 Cadenza sedan is coming soon to Kia of Mankato. Contact us to register your interest and schedule a test drive when it comes in. You will be convinced that this will become your next luxury sedan.
