Telluride, Niro Win Drivers’ Choice Awards

Thursday, March 19th, 2020

Remember when you first watched MotorWeek? The host, John Davis, telling you about the latest vehicles as they go through the slalom or along the roads near their Maryland studio.

They are still on the air! They’re giving awards. And, Kia has been recognized with two of MotorWeek’s Drivers’ Choice Awards for 2020!

The award-winning Kia Telluride was named Best Large Utility, while the Niro took home the Best Eco-Friendly award.

MotorWeek’s editors conduct upwards of 150 car and truck reviews annually, evaluating vehicles on an array of factors, including price, features, performance, accommodations, fuel economy, reliability records, and resale value. The Drivers’ Choice awards are based on these thorough evaluations.

The results are simple. The Telluride is the finest three-row midsize SUV for families. Not just for the 7-8 seat capacity inside, but of its overall value across the lineup. The Telluride’s powerful V6 is designed for the long haul- somewhere beyond the Twin Cities. It also offers a superb ride and overall comfort across all three rows.

For those looking for a better hedge on fuel economy, the Niro is the right vehicle for you. Its versatile crossover body accommodates up to five people or up to 54.5 cubic feet of cargo space. Its Hybrid driveline is designed for efficiency while delivering solid performance for across Mankato or the drive out to Sioux Falls.

Two special vehicles to fit your lifestyle. Both winners in the eyes of MotorWeek. That is a duo you can’t go wrong with. Check out the Niro and Telluride at Kia of Mankato. Take one for a test drive and see why these two are winners in your eyes.

Check Out What Makes The Kia Telluride a Winner

Wednesday, February 12th, 2020

What makes the award-winning Kia Telluride one of the best mid-size three-row SUVs available today?

It all comes down to what the Telluride offers that any other mid-size three-row SUV doesn’t. Or, what Kia does better than its competitors — features. Kia’s features make the Telluride stand out among the rest of its competition, and receive this year’s lion’s share of accolades.

Here are a few features that you would want to check out when looking at the new Telluride:

Blind Spot View Monitor (BVM): Sometimes we think we can make a lane change on U.S. Highway 14 with confidence. We trust our side view mirrors and, yes, the Blind Spot Monitors do a good job detecting vehicles in the next lane. In your instrument cluster, the Blind Spot View Monitor takes it the next step further. Cameras along the sides of the Telluride point towards the rear to give you a much better view before you make a lane change. The screen in-between the speedometer and tachometer pop up to show you whether you can make your move to the next lane. Just flick the turn signal to activate this feature. This will save you from having to swerve your vehicle from harm when a vehicle comes into your view.

Rear Occupant Alert: With three rows of seating, you want to make sure everyone is onboard and secured with their seat belts on. This system uses sensors designed to detect a passenger in the rear cabin. If a rear passenger is detected and the driver leaves the vehicle, the vehicle will follow a series of steps to notify the driver, initially through a vehicle cluster message, and then through vehicle alarm initiation and subsequent SMS/Push message to the owner’s smartphone if they are enrolled through the UVO app. It makes sure that no one is left behind in your Telluride.

Pre-Conditioning The Cabin: Whether it is a typical Minnesota winter day near zero degrees or a mosquito-filled muggy hot day along the river, the UVO app on your smartphone can make sure you get into your Telluride comfortably. All you have to do is to tap, swipe and select the temperature from the Telluride’s climate control system before you get inside. You can also make sure that your seats are heated or cooled before starting the engine.

Highway Driving Assist (HDA): Sometimes we think we’re great drivers. But, we’re always guessing if we’re at the right speed, staying in our lane, and making sure we’re on the road to our destination safely. The Highway Driving Assist feature is designed to help you accomplish your task of going from point A to Point B. This feature uses radar systems to interpret lane markings so the vehicle can control steering, acceleration, and braking to automatically adjust the distance from the vehicle detected ahead. HDA is also designed to recognize speed limits on federal highways and adjust speed accordingly. This may come in handy when you’re taking your Telluride up to the Twin Cities.

These are just a few features that make the new Kia Telluride one of the hottest vehicles of the year. Come see us at Kia of Mankato for a demonstration of these features. Take a Telluride out for a test drive today!
