2020 Kia Telluride vs. 2019 Honda Pilot

There is nary a need that a Kia crossover SUV available at the Kia of Mankato showroom can’t meet. The automaker has raised its profile with current and potential customers by continuing to refine and reinvent its lineup, that now includes one of the segment’s most capable models. A comparison of the 2020 Kia Telluride vs. 2019 Honda Pilot will make a clear and convincing case that a lot of changes are coming inside the industry. The all-new Kia Telluride offers more power, better standard towing capacity and more cargo room than its Honda competitor. Additionally, it can be outfitted with a variety of systems that Honda doesn’t always make widely available. Kia of Mankato customers can schedule a test drive with the 2020 Kia Telluride today by calling, 833-212-9673.

It is worth being as honest as possible when talking about the maximum passenger capacity of the 2020 Kia Telluride and 2019 Honda Pilot. Both vehicles offer trim grades that will accommodate seven or eight passengers. Beyond that similarity, the new 2020 Telluride figuratively starts to leave the Honda Pilot in the dust. Kia engineers have not only constructed the 2020 Telluride to hold up to eight passengers, but all of them will likely be more comfortable than those riding in the 2019 Honda Pilot. The second and third rows of seats in the new Kia crossover SUV offer as much, or more, legroom than its Honda rival. Additionally, folding the seats in the all-new Telluride will open up more available cargo volume than what is available in the Honda Pilot.
