Kia is simplifying its American lineup for the 2021 model year by dropping the Cadenza and K900 from the range. Car and Driver first published the rumor, and the company confirmed the info withMotor1.com.
The decision makes sense because both of the sedans are very slow sellers. Kia moved just 305 units of the K900 in 2020, which was down from a similarly poor 390 examples in 2019. There were awful numbers for a vehicle that just received a new generation for the 2019 model year. This from Chris Bruce at Motor1.com
