Arriving somewhat late to the full-size SUV party, the 2020 Kia Telluride has been lighting up automotive publications and reputable reviews sites alike with praise. The 2020 Kia Telluride is a flagship SUV and one that is already flipping the popular and competitive segment on its head. Not only has it made a name challenging mass-market crossovers, but it’s also been able to go head-to-head with luxury models and body-on-frame SUVs.
Today, we’re comparing the 2020 Kia Telluride to the new Volkswagen SUV, the Atlas. Also a relatively late entry into the class, the Volkswagen Atlas has sought to deliver upscale German quality to the market. Does it succeed? If so, is it any match for the Kia Telluride? Let’s find out!
