During the month of June, the Kia Telluride took home not one but two top titles. Wards named the Telluride on its 2020 Wards 10 Best Interiors list and the New England Motor Press Association recognized the Telluride as the Winter SUV of the Year. These two accolades showcase just how good the 2020 Kia Telluride is and they are an inspiration for drivers looking for their next SUV.

This June we saw the first images of the Kia brand’s latest Kia Carnival model. This will be the fourth generation of the Kia brand’s flagship minivan, the vehicle we know here in the U.S. as the Kia Sedona. The vehicle’s redesign makes it more appealing than ever to younger drivers and its SUV style makes it even sleeker on the road. With no official word yet on what changes will cross over to the U.S. variant, our fingers are crossed that the upcoming Sedona will look just as good.

Now only halfway through 2020, we expect to see many more title grabs and awards throughout the second half of the year.
