Earlier this month, a panel of 82 jurors from 24 countries convened to evaluate dozens of worthy contenders from across the globe. Some of the finest nameplates were presented for the World Car of The Year award.

In the end, the jury came in with a verdict for the 2020 World Car of The Year. The winner is the Kia Telluride.

This is the first time since its first Word Car of The Year award began in 2005 that a Korean automaker had won this award. It is also the first vehicle built in the U.S.A. to win it. On top of all of that, this vehicle is not sold in 21 out of the 24 countries the World Car of The Year jury represents – for now.

The Telluride is a remarkable SUV, seating up to eight passengers, towing up to 5,000 pounds and returning great fuel economy with a powerful V6 engine. The level of technology available on the Kia Telluride is the best among its contenders. These are just a few of the few reasons the World Car of The Year jury cited for this prestigious global accolade.

The 2020 Kia Telluride has now won nineteen awards since its introduction a year ago. Awards from Motor Trend, Car and Driver, and the North American Car of The Year jury is now joined by this worldwide honor.
