2021 Kia Telluride Puts Family First

The 2021 Kia Telluride offers plenty of space for family and more. The Telluride can seat up to eight passengers across its three rows of seating plus everyone’s luggage in its 21 cubic feet of cargo space. When just two rows of seats are needed drivers can fold down the SUV’s third row of seats to expand the cargo area to a spacious 46 cubic feet, or 87 cubic feet when both rear rows are folded. The competing 2021 Volkswagen Atlas may offer slightly more cargo space when its rear seats are folded down, but the Atlas limits drivers to space for just seven adult passengers at maximum and offers less legroom for rear passengers than the 2021 Telluride.

The stylish Kia Telluride stepped up its design game for the 2021 model year, bringing in the Nightfall Edition package. Models equipped with this package wear blacked-out features across their exterior, from black-finish wheels to gloss black Kia logos to black inner headlamp bezels. This sleek and dramatic package is exclusive to the Kia Telluride SUV and shoppers won’t find anything similar in the competing VW Atlas lineup.
