Sentiment Score[*] 66%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
All flavors get the same 3.8-liter V6, free-breathing without turbos. Infotainment duties are handled by Kia's somewhat dated Uvo system. Middle row comfort is excellent, while your average NBA superstar will not be lacking for head nor shoulder room.

Sentiment Score[*] 73%
Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The 2020 Kia Telluride is designed to take on the entire midsize SUV and crossover segment. It's not as sure-footed off the beaten path, where even the AWD model struggled on a moderately challenging trail. Most of the must-have tech is baked right in to the base model, but the EX model represents the sweet spot for tech-enabled value.

  • Rugged, rugged styling
  • No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto
