Though smaller and not quite as strong as its Sequoia counterpart, there’s no debate that the 2020 Kia Telluride is able to pack more efficiency (with up to 26 miles per gallon on the highway), comfort and innovation inside for a much lower price point. With an acoustically-engineered quiet cabin, stitched leather seating arrangements, and interior Wi-Fi capabilities built-in, there’s nothing that you won’t be able to accomplish once you step inside its large, strong doors. Even so, along the ride you can trust the 2020 Telluride to keep you protected in ways that the 2019 Sequoia simply can’t. It features some of the best driver assistance features out there as part of Kia Drive Wise, some of which include:

  • Blind Spot View Monitor
  • Highway Driving Assist
  • Safe Exit Assist
  • Surround View Monitor
  • Many more!
