I find the seat belt fastener in our 2014 Kia Cadenza to be uncomfortable. I have the same problem with our Kia Forte.
There is too much hard plastic around the buckle and it's thick. I find myself constantly trying to adjust it as it digs into my body.

To put it simply, the 2014 Kia Cadenza Limited's interior is a nice place to spend time.

The last time I saw a feature like this was on a Mercedes-Benz E-Class. On the Mercedes, a quick jab of its brake pedal at a stop light engages the brakes and allows the driver to remove his foot from the pedal. Handy at those really long lights.
The way Kia does it, however, is with a button adjacent to the parking-brake button (shown in this blog entry). After pressing the button, an indicator lights in the instrument panel: White=ready, and Green=engaged. The next time the car comes to a stop, the brakes fully engage automatically. When the light traffic signal turns green, simply press the throttle normally and the Cadenza releases the brakes and the car gently pulls away.
Fine, call me lazy for it, but I like being able to relax both of my feet on the floor of the car while I wait for the traffic light. Also, when this system is active, the parking brake automatically engages when the vehicle is put in Park.
