This year, a second Kia, the all-new 2017 Cadenza, took home the prize in the full-size sedan segment. Judges were impressed with its sophisticated styling and comfortable, spacious interior.

Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, KMA, said, “Its unique combination of style, fun-to-drive attitude, extensive feature content, and practicality make the Soul a crowd favorite, while the Cadenza’s upscale design, ample interior, and advanced convenience features make it a fierce competitor in the full-size sedan segment.”
