Right from when it made its first debut two years ago, the Telluride received so many admirations from shoppers, thanks to its near-luxury interior, spacious third row, and creamy ride quality. This Kia’s family-size three-row SUV also boasts a swath of standard features and high-tech safety features.
And for 2022, the Telluride further distances itself from other midsize three-row SUVs. It sports handsome looks, upscale trimmings, loads of desirable features, and practicality.
