Safe, strong and super reliable are three traits drivers choosing a vehicle in the full-size, third-row crossover segment look for. After all, most drivers looking for more than five seats are doing so because they have a family they need to bring along. For those drivers, safety and confidence behind the wheel are of utmost importance. Vehicles in this class need to be more than just adequately safe, however, they also are often the preferred method of transportation for adventures and excursions. For this reason, they need to be able to do a lot and do it comfortably and conveniently.
The 2020 Kia Telluride is the newest arrival to this party and has been dazzling drivers everywhere since its introduction earlier this year. The Telluride is a bold and luxurious take on the segment that looks and feels twice its price.
