2014 Kia Cadenza: Fuel Economy Update for November
December 8, 2014
November was a busy final month for our long-term 2014 Kia Cadenza (it returns home early this December). We put a bit more than 2,500 miles on the Cadenza this month, mostly on road trips to Las Vegas, Monterey and Palm Springs, ending up with a tick more than 21,000 miles on the odometer.
We filled the tank 10 times last month and averaged 23.8 mpg, a bit better than the EPA's combined mpg rating. We also recorded our second-best range of the long-term test at 426.8 miles. It's a fitting end to the Cadenza's time with us. It rarely sat idle and proved a versatile, useful midsize sedan throughout the year.
Worst Fill MPG: 15.3
Best Fill MPG: 29.9
Average Lifetime MPG: 21.9
EPA MPG Rating: 22 Combined (19 City/28 Highway)
Best Range: 441.3 miles
Current Odometer: 21,154 miles
