If someone asks anyone around the Lakeshore Kia showroom the question, ‘Is the 2020 Kia Telluride the best three-row crossover SUV?’ They are almost guaranteed to give you a resounding answer in the affirmative. As enthusiastic as our team of product experts is about the 2020 Telluride, we actually have some very compelling evidence to support our position. MotorTrend has awarded the 2020 Telluride the automaker’s first SUV of the Year award and Car and Driver has named the vehicle to its annual 10Best Trucks and SUVs list. Let’s take a look at what they liked about the 2020 Kia Telluride.
When Kia was designing and developing the 2020 Telluride, they put pencil to paper to deliver a family-friendly vehicle that offered plenty of space, plenty of performance and plenty of refinement. Those just so happen to be many of the reasons why MotorTrend magazine named the Kia Telluride its 2020 SUV of the Year. It’s three rows of adaptable seating quickly drew the attention of the evaluators from MotorTrend. Additionally, the editors praised the vehicle for offering such an outstanding list of equipment at such an attractive price point.
“This year’s MotorTrend SUV of the Year competition was one of the most competitive we’ve ever had, which makes Kia Telluride’s win all the more significant,” MotorTrend Editor-in-Chief Edward Loh, said in a press release. “Telluride absolutely nails our awards criteria – it’s gorgeous, spacious, technology-laden, and offers a great ride for an astonishingly fair price. Congratulations to Kia and the Telluride team.”
The modern SUV class of the global automotive industry is already one of the most competitive in history. Having the Kia Telluride make the Car and Driver list of the 10Best Trucks and SUVs really just confirms what we knew the day it first arrived at the Lakeshore Kia showroom. It’s important to point out that the 2020 Telluride wasn’t just picked from a group consisting of V-6-powered, three-row crossover SUVs. The Car and Driver editors considered models from every corner of the SUV marketplace, making the competition all the more intense.
“The Telluride is rare in how good it is,” Sharon Silke Carty, Car and Driver editor-in-chief, said in a press release. “It spoils passengers with features, is quiet, responsive and smooth. It stands out in the crowded three-row SUV market.”
