2014 Kia Cadenza: The Seats Don't Fit Me
July 31, 2014
After 200 highway miles in our long-term 2014 Kia Cadenza I came to one solid conclusion about the interior: It just doesn't fit me. The seats are well-bolstered and made from high quality materials but I just can't get comfortable while driving the Cadenza and here's why.
The driver seat doesn't get low enough to accommodate my legs. I'm 5-foot-9-inches tall and if I'm in an upright position while driving, the front of the seat is angled directly in to the back of my legs. The 10-way adjustable driver seat (standard on the Cadenza in Premium trim) has plenty of movement in every other direction, but the front of the seat just doesn't get low enough to let me get comfortable on road trips.
It's a shame too, because I really like everything else about this interior, but I couldn't live with this seating position on a daily basis.
