2020 Kia Telluride: Features, Functions, and More

Did you know the Kia Telluride was named the 2020 MotorTrend SUV of the Year?

Seven out of 11 judges gave it first-place votes for a variety of reasons—design, engineering, efficiency, safety. To earn this accolade, a vehicle gets judged in an exhaustive process encompassing six categories. So, to win, a car has to be well-rounded.

That's what you can expect with this spacious SUV.

General Specs

Here are some go-to talking points when looking for a new vehicle:

·         What's the fuel economy? 19 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway

Here's a brief overview of what you'll find in the Telluride:

In this model's creation, nothing was spared, with everything focused around convenience and practicality. 

Speaking of convenience—the Telluride offers everything you'd expect in this digital age:

·         Heated seats

·         Front and rear door bins

With the room for seven passengers, your SUV will never feel crowded.

There's plenty of spaciousness to be had—let's touch on that, and its other design features, next.


The design of the Kia Telluride is a harmonious balance of pragmatism and spaciousness.

This is Kia's most considerable SUV. Because of this, the exterior is decked out with a large, confident grille and tucked-away headlights that don't impede on the front overhang.

The inside is just as substantial as the outside and comes with quite a sophisticated look. Besides its smooth leather interior, it boasts plenty of seating (with legroom to boot), expertly-located seat-fold buttons and handles, and USB ports in all three rows of the vehicle!

Even the second row gets a taste of the greatness with heated and ventilated seats.

Of course, these are all the standard features. Anyone looking to upgrade their model should know that 20" alloy wheels, satin chrome highlights, and LED and fog lights are available. 


It doesn't get much safer than the Kia Telluride. Their innovative safety technology has thought of things we may not realize we even needed.

For example, the vehicle can detect the weight of a rear passenger. If a passenger is in the rear cabin, and the driver leaves the SUV, they'll get a notification on their phone. This ensures no one gets left behind, no one uninvited gets in, and everyone is safe.

In addition to this rear occupant alert, there's also a remote door lock/unlock and a Find My Car feature.

When it comes to driving, safety innovation doesn't stop. Drivers can expect:

·         BVM, or Blind Spot View Monitor — Shows a continuous live feed of your right rear blind spots

·         Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist-Rear, which keeps you on your course if an object is detected in the lane you're merging onto

·         HDA, or Highway Driving Assist — Matches speed of changing speed limits while on cruise control, and matches the speed of the vehicle in front of yours

·         SEA, or Safe Exit Assist — Can override attempts to open the vehicle by deactivating the child safety lock if it's unsafe for rear passengers to open the door (such as an oncoming vehicle)

·         RCCA, or Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, which scans for obstacles when backing up, and provides audio and visual alerts. It can also provide braking intervention if necessary

·         A Surround View Monitor (SVM) that provides a bird's-eye view of your vehicle using four exterior cameras when attempting to park

This beautiful balance of active and passive safety features make the Telluride an excellent vehicle for all drivers, passengers, and even others on the road.


The Kia Telluride may look large and in charge, but manufacturers splurged on expensive but lightweight material when making it. This allows it to have a right-on-par fuel economy for an SUV of this stature.

Additionally, the Telluride can tow up to 5,000 pounds, has on-demand All Wheel Drive, and even a self-leveling rear suspension available.
