Kia One-Touch Slide & Fold

2022 Telluride one of the hottest SUVs available.

Kia’s Telluride is one of its most celebrated models, with plenty of luxurious features and room for up to eight passengers.  

It’s great to have an SUV that seats a lot of people when you need to transport a crowd. What’s not so great is trying to squeeze into the 3rd row, especially for people with longer legs. Fortunately, the 2022 Kia Telluride comes with a convenient option to move the second-row seat out of the way with just a single touch. 

How does One-Touch Slide & Fold work?


One-Touch Slide & Fold provides quick and convenient access to the third-row seats.

There are two buttons on the second-row seat that can be used for the one touch slide and fold release. One button is at the top of the seat, and the other is on the side, near the floor. With just a touch of the button, the second-row seat will slide all the way forward and fold towards the front, providing much more room to access the third row.

After the third-row passengers are seated, the second-row seat should be pushed back to its furthest position to ensure that it locks back into place. If adjustment is needed, there’s a lever under the second-row seat to change its position. 

Troubleshooting One-Touch Slide and Fold

If you’re having trouble getting the seat to slide forward, there could be a few things preventing the function of the One-Touch Slide and Fold. The second-row seatback should be in its most upright position, with the headrests in the lowest position. The seatbelt buckle should be in the pocket between the rear seatback and the cushion. Be sure that the seat isn’t getting tangled in the seatbelt.

Finally, check around the floor to make sure there’s nothing in the way of the seat.

When is this feature most useful?

The One-Touch Slide and Fold can come in handy in quite a few situations. You might want to move the second row forward to give you more room when wrestling car-seats into place. Or you may be transporting a carload of teenagers to a sports competition. If you’re driving for the office carpool, your coworkers will definitely appreciate having more space to get situated in the car. Or maybe you just want a little more space to load your shopping bags into the car. 

No matter how you use your Telluride, there’s sure to be plenty of opportunities to appreciate the flexibility of the seats.

If you’re transporting cargo instead of passengers, both the second and third row seats also have an option to fold down entirely, giving you plenty of space for equipment, furniture, or big shopping hauls.

For more help with seat adjustment, consult your Kia owner’s manual. 

The Award-Winning Telluride

In addition to the handy One-Touch Slide and Fold feature, the Kia Telluride has plenty of other great gadgets and technology. You’ll get a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. Smart keys are available, with remote start at just the push of a button.

An impressive safety suite will keep your family protected and can save you from some tricky situations on the road. Kia Drivewise adds some automated features like danger warnings, automatic emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist.  Cameras and sensors around the vehicle help to eliminate any blind spots and raise alerts for unexpected obstacles. A Rear Occupant Alert will even let the driver know if any passengers are inadvertently left in the backseats unattended.

The Kia Telluride is powered by a 291-horsepower, 3.8-liter Lambda II gasoline V6 engine. It works with an eight-speed automatic transmission and is available with either front-wheel-drive (FWD) or Kia’s “Dynamax” all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. The Telluride can even tow up to 5000 lbs. It’s the perfect vehicle to take on a family camping trip or use to get some serious work accomplished.

If you’re looking for a powerful SUV that can handle anything on the road and off, the Telluride is a great pick. It’s easy to see why the Telluride is one of Kia’s most award-winning vehicles. Come to Lawrence Kia and check out our latest 2022 Telluride models today!
