Kia Sorento vs. Hyundai Santa Fe

Which SUV Will it Be?

The mid-size SUV segment is an ever-popular one, thanks to all the cool things these vehicles can do. Not only can they typically go off-road in AWD versions and tow a couple thousand pounds or more, they also can fit a large group and provide horsepower that makes lane changes and acceleration a snap. You also get cargo room to fit large objects or stow enough bags for a family trip or a move to a new house, for starters.

The Meaning Behind Cadenza

"Cadenza" means a virtuoso solo passage, which suits this new Kia Cadenza well, as it takes center stage with elegant touches like its two available front grilles, and it delivers audio bliss with its available 12-speaker Harman/Kardon sound system. On the other hand, "Maxima" is the plural form of maximum, which also suits the Nissan Maxima, since it comes with a maximum starting price.
