2020 Kia Telluride Vs. Land Rover Discovery

split screen comparison between 2020 Kia Telluride Vs. Land Rover Discovery

Although Kia has been manufacturing models that have moved considerably upmarket from the Spectras and Concords of ages past, there always seemed to be an upper limit for the brand. Whether real or imagined, most mass-market brands face this limit to how nice a vehicle can look before it’s considered a luxury model. If you would have told us even five years ago that we’d be comparing a Kia model to a Land Rover model, we would have just assumed we went mad with power and were comparing vehicles willy-nilly.

Such is not the case, however. The 2020 Kia Telluride has ushered in a new era of sophisticated design, class-leading performance and a plethora of comfort and convenience technology which make every mile an event to anticipate. Kia’s new slogan “Give It Everything” adequately describes the philosophy behind the Telluride. Today, we are comparing the 2020 Kia Telluride to the Land Rover Discovery, a luxury SUV. Let’s see how the Telluride does:

The 2020 Kia Telluride Proves Kia Can Compete with Luxury Badges

As you can see in the above chart, the 2020 Kia Telluride is proof that Kia is capable of running with the most well-regarded luxury brands in the industry and surpassing them even on several key elements.

For instance, the Kia Telluride manages to perfectly balance fuel efficiency and power, delivering over 290 horsepower and 5,000 lbs. of maximum towing capability while still giving you over 20 combined MPG. Similarly, the 2020 Kia Telluride has 87 cubic feet of interior space with seats folded courtesy of its rugged boxy design.

Technology, like Adaptive Cruise Control, is standard on the 2020 Kia Telluride but requires a costly upgrade for the 2019 Land Rover Discovery.

In fact, you can get a top-of-the-line 2020 Kia Telluride SX with full active safety suite, 10.25-inch touchscreen display, heated front and rear seats and more and still spend almost $10,000 less than you would for the base model Discovery.
