2020 Kia Telluride Review


The Kia Telluride is now for sale in Massillon, Ohio at Waikem Kia! The Telluride is a brand-new third-row SUV. In fact, it’s the largest Kia ever made. 

The Telluride includes a 3.8L V6 engine, it can tow up to 5,000 pounds, and it comes standard with advanced safety technology. 

The Telluride has a starting MSRP of $31,690. Visit Waikem Kia today for a test drive and see why it was voted the best new car of the year by cars.com.

Third Row, Seating for 8
You can fit up to 8 people inside a 2020 Kia Telluride. There are both 7 passenger and 8 passenger configurations, and the Telluride is roomier and more comfortable than any other Kia SUV before it. 
The Telluride was built with families in mind. It offers many advanced safety features that ensure everyone has a safe, comfortable commute. 


Every Kia Telluride offers the following advanced safety options: 

- Blind Spot Collision Avoidance -- visual and audio warnings that a vehicle is in your blind spot

- Forward Collision Avoidance with Pedestrian Detection – warns you if a collision with a biker or pedestrian is possible. 

- Forward Collision Warning -- includes audio and visual chimes if traffic ahead of you is stopped.

- Lane Departure Warning – warnings when you sway or change lanes without signaling

- Lane Following Assist – uses radar to help you stay in your lane

- Rear Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist – helps when you’re backing up and someone is coming in from either the right or left side. 

- Rear Camera  -- a standard backup camera

- Safe Exit Assist – the doors will remain locked and won’t open if there’s a car coming from either side, preventing a side swipe or a car-door hit. 

- Smart Cruise Control -- a radar based system that helps maintain a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.

- Rear Occupant Alert --  Uses ultrasonic sensors designed to detect child or pet movement in the second and third row after the car’s doors have been locked and then can issue audible alerts to the driver


As you climb the trim levels, the Telluride adds safety features including:

- Highway Driving Assist --  Uses radar systems to interpret lane markings so the vehicle can control steering, acceleration and braking to automatically adjust distance from the vehicle detected ahead. HDA is also designed to recognize speed limits on federal highways and adjust speed accordingly

- Quiet Mode -- Cuts audio output in second and third row so the audio choices of the front occupants are only heard in that row

- Driver Talk -- Uses a microphone to enhance communication with second- and third-row passengers

- High Beam Assist – automatically turns high beams on and off when people approach. 

- Blind Spot View Monitor – A camera that comes up when you attempt to change lanes, allowing for a safe lane change. 

- Parking distance Warning – letting you know exactly how safe it is to park in a tight spot. 


Telluride Capabilities

The Telluride comes standard with front wheel drive and all wheel drive is available. It rides smooth with power and performance you haven’t experienced before. 

It has an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 3.8L V6 engine produces 291 horsepower, and like we said before, standard towing is rated up to 5,000 pounds. 

The optional self-leveling rear suspension system means that ride height is automatically calibrated depending on vehicle load to optimize control and stability. 

The Telluride also offers four driving modes – smart, eco, sport and comfort. Each uses different settings for powertrain, drivetrain, and steering effort mapping to provide the desired driving experience.  In addition to the four regular drive modes, drivers can select from two different settings, Snow and AWD Lock, for specific driving conditions.


Loaded with Technology 

The Telluride comes standard with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

Apps and options are laid out on the center console and it looks just like your phone's screen. From there you can safely and easy make phone calls and audibly send or hear text messages. 

These systems also provide you access to your Google or Apple Maps software, along with other popular apps like Pandora, Yelp, NPR, Spotify, Podcasts, Skype, MLB At Bat, Audiobooks and much more.

It comes standard with five USB ports and six are available on higher trim levels. The Telluride also has an innovative multi-Bluetooth wireless connectivity, which means you can connect two phones simultaneously!
