Kia Telluride Review


Jack Daugherty, Reporter

The 2021 Kia Telluride S SUV is a known car but also not a known car. This car features 8 seats for the whole family, an AWD system with four different drive modes, and also comfortable Napa leather. There are so many more other features included. 

This is an affordable but luxurious car. It also drives like a dream. It comes in stock with a 3.8L V6 that pushes out almost 300hp with an 8-speed automatic transmission. 

My two favorite things about this car are that it comes equipped with a 10.25-inch touchscreen radio and media center in the car and my other favorite thing is the interior of the car. The interior is made of Napa leather as I mentioned earlier. This leather is not soft at first but once you break into it feels like a dream while driving or as a passenger. The price on the car is not that bad either. The car starts out at $34,390 but with all the other features it will land you at a price of around $39,000.

The Kia Telluride is an excellent SUV but it has competition like the Hyundai Palisade. This car is the same exact replica of the Telluride. The SUV has the same features.

 A little backstory to the Kia Telluride is that the Kia Telluride was thought of in 2016 when Kia wanted a five-door, 8 seater, and finally a good gas mileage car. Kia made this car into a concept car and debuted it at a concept car show. The car at the time did not have a name. The workers then went to a little mining town that was called Telluride in Colorado. No one knows why this name was town but the name Kia and Telluride flows really well together.
