Kia Cadenza, K900 axed from US range because sedans

Everyone loves SUVs, no one loves sedans, especially big(ish) ones from companies that aren’t BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota or Honda.

That’s why the FWD Kia Cadenza and the RWD Kia K900 aren’t coming back for the 2021 model year.

The K900’s death isn’t surprising, Hyundai/Kia now has the Genesis brand to take care of buyers wanting a large luxury sedan. The Cadenza, though, was facelifted last year and unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show.

Just 1,265 Cadenzas were sold in the US in 2020, and the K900 sold just 305. The Stinger better keep a look out, it was the brand’s third worst selling model with 12,556 sales.

A spokesperson for Kia confirmed the death of the Cadenza and K900 to Car and Driver, but reassured them that the Forte, K5 and Stinger are safe (for now).
