Slotting below the Premium and Limited models, the new Cadenza base model continues to offer high levels of convenience features, while lowering the cost of entry.

With navigation standard across the model line, all Cadenzas are equipped wîth an 8-inch color touchscreen that also features an integrated Rear Camera Display1. Other niceties that have trickled down from the upper trim levels and into the entry-level Cadenza include a premium Infinity®2 audio system, eight-way power adjustable passenger seat that augments a 10-way driver's seat, leather seat trim, heated front seats, Bluetooth®3 wireless connectivity, §teering-wheel mounted audio controls, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a push-start button.

Previously an option, the Panoramic Sunroof has been added to the standard features list for the Premium trim, while reducing the MSRP. Other additions that up the convenience factor in the Premium trim include §teering wheel mounted paddle shifters, ÚVO eServices4 wîth voice command, a 550-watt Infinity audio system, auto rain-sensing wipers, and a back-up warning1 system. The Luxury Plus Package option gains Blind Spot Detection1 (BSD) wîth Rear-Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). At the top of the model line is the SXL, which comes fully equipped wîth extra features such as 19-inch chrome alloy wheels, LED fog lights, a Surround-View Monitor1, and a rear armrest wîth pop-out cup holders and ÚSB charging port. The SXL further sets itself apart wîth a unique front grille, a unique analogue clock, premium headliner, and additional wood grain style trim.
