2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs 2019 Kia Cadenza

After years of waiting, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon sedan is finally out in the USA! So, how does this dip into luxury fare for the Volkswagen brand? The only way to be sure is to test it against other, full-size luxury sedans on the market. For an appropriate competitor today, we’ve chosen the 2019 Kia Cadenza!

The 2019 Kia Cadenza luxury sedan is a foil to the 2019 Kia Stinger sports sedan. While the Stinger prioritizes handling and lightweight driving dynamics, the Cadenza focuses on comfort, luxury, and technology. That makes the 2019 Kia Cadenza the better opponent of the two similarly priced Kia sedans to face against the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon.

So, let’s see which sedan is the better option for a high-class ride. It’s the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs the 2019 Kia Cadenza!
