The 2020 Kia Telluride comes in four trim levels, all of which offer a lot of crossover SUV for the money.
We rate it at 9 out of 10 thanks to its good base equipment, a big and intuitive infotainment setup, impressive warranty, and its overall strong value. (Read more about how we rate cars.)
The base Telluride LX costs about $32,700 and includes three rows of seats including a middle-row bench seat, synthetic leather upholstery, active safety tech, power features, an 8.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, five USB ports, Bluetooth, and keyless ignition. All-wheel drive costs $2,000 on all trims.
For about $2,300 more, the Telluride S has a flashier look with its 20-inch alloy wheels and dark gray exterior accents. That’s a lot to pay for styling, although the S trim does include rear-seat captain’s chairs, heated front seats, and power adjustment for the driver’s seat.
We’d bypass the S in favor of the Telluride EX that costs about $38,200. It adds a 10.3-inch widescreen display, leather upholstery, cooled front seats, three-zone automatic climate control, a wireless charging pad, a sixth USB port, a power tailgate, and a sunroof.
That’s where we’d stop, unless the Telluride SX’s Harman Kardon audio, 20-inch wheels and surround-view camera system are worth $4,400 more to you.
The SX is the only trim level with an option package. For $2,000, the Prestige package adds nappa leather, heated and cooled second-row seats, a head-up display, a heated steering wheel, and a few other features.
The Telluride is covered by a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty that’s longer than most rivals.
