Learn about the Kia Telluride

Summary

The 2020 Kia Telluride is the automaker's high-end midsize SUV that offers drivers both comfort and power, with impressive storage and towing capacity. With comfortable leather seating that can fit up to seven additional passengers and enough power to easily tow 5,000lbs, the Kia Telluride is as spacious as it is capable. Tech-savvy drivers will appreciate the long list of standard technical features, such as its user-friendly infotainment system and wireless connectivity. This midsized ride has a high-end interior and a wide range of driver aids that make this vehicle the perfect family SUV.

Safety

The Kia Telluride comes loaded with standard safety features and a variety of optional add-ons. With seven airbags and child-safety rear door locks, the Telluride is designed to make you feel safe. This all-new SUV comes with a ton of modern safety specs, such as:

  • Advanced Forward Collision Avoidance Assist
  • Rearview camera
  • Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist
  • Parking sensors

The Telluride's safety features make it a popular choice for families who love to hit the open road.

Interior

The Kia Telluride's interior cabin is impressive. With top-notch standard features like leather seating and heated front and second-row seats, this midsized SUV is more luxurious than similar models. Interior features on all trim lines include:

  • Wood-grain trim
  • 8-way power-adjustable seating with 2-way lumbar adjustments
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob
  • Easy stowing capabilities of second and third-row seats

The Telluride's competitor, the Hyundai Palisade, may have it only slightly beat in terms of fine interior finishes, but there's no denying the overall premium feel of the Telluride.

Technology

The Telluride is packed with driver aids and technological gadgets to keep you and your passengers safe, informed and entertained. Even the base EX trim line comes with a good range of technical specs like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capabilities and a wireless phone charger. No matter what model you're interested in, you'll find that high-end tech features come standard across all trim lines.

With features like satellite radio, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, the Kia Telluride makes it simple to stay connected while driving.

Space

Compared to the Kia Sorento, the added length of the Telluride means that drivers can expect a lot more cargo and cabin space. Stowing the second and third-row seats is a breeze, which adds even more cargo room for heavy-duty transportation. There's plenty of leg and shoulder room at maximum occupancy, and the second-row seating provides ample legroom for adults. Smaller passengers may feel more comfortable in the third row. In terms of combined cargo and cabin space, the Telluride stands apart.

Comfort

The Kia Telluride ranks very high in the comfort department. Despite its size and rugged appeal, the Kia Telluride SUV is one smooth ride. Handling is gentle and seamless over most terrains, although it's not as agile as some of its competitors. For extra control when handling those icy or windy roads, 4WD is available on all trims. Combined with extra padding on the front-row seats, the Telluride goes above and beyond in this category.
