The similarities start up front. The triangular headlight surrounds are topped with white-ish eyebrows, just like the 5 Series, and the hood has the same kind of flowing creases as the BMW.

Passengers will be pleased with the Cadenza’s spacious backseat; it’s as roomy as the rear seat in some long-wheelbase full-size sedans. The stretch-out legroom is complemented by supportive seating that should enhance long-haul comfort.
