Tenpin...yes, I have seen the unveiling of the Cadenza (where do they come up with these names). It's based on that new VG platform...which is actually the sister platform on which the current Azera is based on. Considering the Kia version will be offering AWD, maybe that's one of the upgrades that will go on with the Azera should it stick around beyond 2010. Also...if AWD can be offered on a car such as the Cadenza, then that would mean there's hope that the Genesis and possibly the upcoming Equus could also offer that feature as well.
However, back tracking on my statement about the Azera not making it past 2010...I found this little blurb in Wikipedia on the Kia Opirus (Amanti)...
"The Kia VG concept (Kia KND-5, production model named Cadenza) was reported to be successor of Amanti, based on the platform for the next generation of Hyundai Azera."
So maybe that would mean that the upcoming Azera would be set apart from the Sonata by offering features like AWD, LED headlight surrounds, heated & cooled seats, extendable seat cushions and other features that the Cadenza will offer.
