2014 Kia Cadenza: Well-Designed Storage Spaces
January 22, 2014
Accessible storage space isn't always a given in modern cars, even high-priced luxury models. Our $100K+ Tesla doesn't have anything more than a big flat space on the floor to put things down once you get in.
As you can see, the 2014 Kia Cadenza has a handy space just in front of the shifter. It's not a huge compartment but there's enough room to toss a wallet, a cellphone and some keys. The proximity of the USB port also makes it handy for phone charging. This kind of thing is hardly ground breaking, but it does make our Cadenza seem that much easier to live with.
And once you're under way, it's a car that doesn't do anything annoying in terms of how it works. Everything is where you expect to find it and generally works as you expect it to. In many ways, that's more luxurious than fancy features you never use or can't find.
