2014 Kia Cadenza: Trunk Release Button But...

September 25, 2014

2014 Kia Cadenza

You've seen some posts by our staff about the usefulness of the trunk features in our long-term 2014 Kia Cadenza and one about it bonking Scott on his head.

This weekend I went grocery shopping and was happy to see the cargo net in the trunk to hold my bottles in place. But I noticed a cost-cutting feature in our Cadenza. While it has a trunk release button on the keyfob, it just unlatches the lock to the trunk. The trunk lid then pops open a little but does not have any equipment to auto-open and auto-close.

It's still handy when you've got arms full of groceries. And then you use the usual plastic handle inside the lid to close the trunk manually.

The Cadenza is a car with a lot of nice features at a lower price point than most luxury brands, and Kia needs to find ways to cut costs on this car somewhere. Well, this is one of them.
