2020 Kia Telluride Prices & Reviews
For many years, Kia Telluride has offered up its Sorento as a choice for shoppers looking for a three-row crossover SUV. As much as we like the Sorento, it comes up short in two important areas: cargo and rear passenger space. That’s why we’re excited to see the new 2020 Kia Telluride. It addresses those shortcomings with a larger size and a lot more interior capacity.
The Telluride, an all-new three-row midsize SUV, is now Kia’s biggest vehicle and about the same size as a Honda Pilot. It can seat up to eight passengers and offers a maximum of 87 cubic feet of cargo capacity. A 291-horsepower V6 is standard as are plenty of advanced driver safety features. The interior design is upscale, and Kia is also offering some family-focused features such as an available driver intercom system. Another draw is the Telluride’s bold styling, a rarity in the class.
Even better, Kia has thoughtfully executed just about every aspect of the vehicle. It drives well, has plenty of utility and pleasant passenger space, and offers up just about all the features we expect from this class of vehicle. In higher trim levels, it becomes an even more appealing near-luxury choice, delivering a premium experience. If you’re shopping for a three-row crossover SUV, Kia’s new Telluride is one of the top models to check out.
The Telluride is a safe family SUV. In addition to numerous standard driving-assistance and collision-avoidance technologies, the Telluride is a Top Safety Pick according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The body structure is composed of nearly 60-percent high-strength steel.
