"How Can I Assist you?" My Kia Concierge Experience

A couple of weeks ago, I got the opportunity to test drive the Kia Cadenza..but this wasn't your typical test drive......

Kia launched a new program called the Kia Concierge Program, aimed to change the test driving experience by bringing the vehicle to you! So no going around from dealership to dealership, and there's no sales guy and his supervisor asking "What can we do to get you into a vehicle today?" I scheduled a time and day that worked for me, and was met by the Kia representative, with the 2017 Kia Cadenza easy right?

The Kia Cadenza is the brand's luxury model, with enough features and sleek body styling to compete with some pricier brands that we won't name, but with a price tag of around $44,000, it won't make your wallet cringe. Now I'm not saying that's something to sneeze at but for all the features packed it here it's a good deal. The interior is Nappa Leather, it has push button start, and a 290 horsepower engine. But we all know what I'm a sucker for..the me the buttons! It's has 7" touch screen display and is compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It even supports wireless smartphone charging (throw confetti Samsung Galaxy 8 users...still waiting for Apple to get this feature..seriously c'mon!) The concierge said I should switch to an Android..I'll wait...I'm kind of invested at this point and I like my Apple stuff.

A few other cool features is the Smart Welcome, so when you walk up with the smart key, the mirrors unfold and the lights cut on in the interior and exterior, almost as to say hello I've been waiting. If you're walking to your car at night this is definitely welcome. This car also has smart power trunk...if you've seen my other write ups, you know I love the power trunk, but this one is even better. Walk up to the trunk with the key (doesn't have to be out just on you) and the trunk opens automatically. Look if I've got an arm full of groceries or maybe the laundry bags this helps! I remember when Kia was considered the lower end when it came to buying a new car but clearly times are changing. If you want to take your own test drive you can check it out here.
