The New 2020 Kia Telluride Makes A Big Impression

As the SUV era peaks, the all new KIA Telluride 3 row midsize high-riding people and cargo hauler manages to cast considerable shade on its competitors.

For one thing … the KIA Telluride actually looks different from the wind tunnel swept, swooping and arched sheet metal so popular from the Asian auto design studios. The Telluride sports a more traditional boxy SUV profile, smoothed out around the edges with sleek flush mounted front and rear lighting assemblies, an elegant treatment of its signature tiger nose front grille, subtle stylized vents and lower door chrome accents.

A spirited road and trail rig, the top tier SX AWD $43,000 Telluride has a hearty and efficient 3.6 Liter V6 churning 291 horsepower mated with a sure-footed all-wheel-drive option and taut but lively suspension featuring self-leveling rear.

Inside the KIA Telluride is resplendent in stitched leather trimmed seating, a sweeping expansive wood grain accented dash with a 10.25”  touch screen centered command and control stack. The convenience of Apple Car Play and Android Auto connectivity and a premium Harmon/Kardon 10 Speaker surround sound system are augmented by a 64 color mood lighting option.
