INNOVATION THAT'S ROAD-READY.

The engine is the heartbeat of performance. But with the pace of change, the gasoline engine needs to be as forward-thinking and as carefully considered as any component in a Kia vehicle.

New technologies and new approaches are discovered and considered every day. And the best of these will find their way into a Kia. But always with one key consideration: innovation has to be a partner to delivering a rewarding driving experience.

Performance, innovation, durability-no matter the model, every Kia is ready to handle every driving situation.

PERFORMANCE

Cadenza: tested to the redline and beyond.

INNOVATION FINDS ITS WAY INTO EVERY PART OF A KIA.

In the Cadenza, we've included an impressive V6 engine. The gasoline direct injection (GDI) technology helps ensure improved performance without compromising fuel efficiency. The GDI powerplant produces a truly pleasing 293 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 255 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,200 rpm.

And not only is the engine innovative, it's designed to last. The engine, like every Kia engine, is run 300 continuous hours at redline under a full load-and then for an additional 20 hours at 10 percent above redline.

Performance, innovation, durability-no matter the model, every Kia is ready to handle any driving situation.

Fuel-friendly. Eco-friendly.

IDLE, STOP & GO TECHNOLOGY.

Even the most efficient gasoline engine produces exhaust emissions idling at a stoplight or while sitting in traffic.

Kia's innovative Idle, Stop & Go technology puts a stop to all that. Literally. With ISG technology, the engine turns off if you come to a complete stop. Simply release the brake pedal and the engine restarts, seamlessly.

Not only does the ISG technology help you reduce emissions and fuel consumption-it also helps reduce the wear and tear on your engine.
