Exterior

This latest Kia SUV has the dimensions looking more like a Range Rover than a Kia. The height of the Telluride comes in at 70.9 inches, and the length is 196.9 inch with a wheelbase of 121.3 inches. Get ready to feel comfortable in this spacious ride. Believe it or not, the Telluride with these dimensions feels smaller than a Kia Sorento.

If exhausts are your thing, the Telluride has a sculpted rear skid plate with twin exhausts. This was the Telluride at SEMA & NADA this year complete with an air intake snorkel.

The headlights are interesting, the Telluride has illuminating Amber LED headlamps and fog lights for a one of a kind look.  Additionally, the broad hood showcases the wide tiger-nose grill. Trust me, the person ahead can see you!

When traveling behind a Telluride, you will see the inverted “L” tail lamps with LED Stripes.

Interior

The Interior has a sweet 10.25 head-up color touchscreen display. Head-up means the display sits higher than the dashboard. The Telluride doesn’t just have a back-up camera; it’s a 360-degree back-up camera that will alert you when obstructions are in the front, back, left or right positions.

The Telluride seats up to 8 passengers with heating and cooling seat options for both the front and 2nd back seat, let us not forget the Nappa leather trim upholstery. All your passengers will be fully charged with handy USB charging stations in both the second and third-row seating.

Get ready to blast the tunes with a 10-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system.

The higher-end models have two sunroofs; one for the driver and front passenger, and another one that sits between the second & third-rows.
