2019 Kia Telluride vs 2019 Toyota Highlander

Serving Woodstock, GA

The 2019 Kia Telluride is among the newest three-row crossovers to hit the market. It’s the largest SUV in Kia’s lineup. Not only does the new Telluride prioritize passenger comfort, but it also comes loaded with premium technologies. A breathtaking exterior design also helps separate the Telluride from the competition. Let’s see how the 2020 Kia Telluride measures up against the 2020 Toyota Highlander.

Exterior Styling

Both of these three-row crossovers have a fresh appearance. However, the 2020 Kia Telluride is an absolute showstopper. It was chosen as “Best in Show” by Cars.com. A breathtaking headlight design and bold tiger-nose grille make this SUV look stunning. A muscular body also helps the Telluride to draw a lot of attention. Available black wheels further enhance the Telluride’s curb appeal. Some of the signature paint colors include Dark Moss, Black Copper, and Gravity Grey.


Although the Telluride has yet to receive an official safety rating from the NHTSA, expect it to rank among the class leaders in impact protection. Both the Telluride and the Highlander offer modern accident-avoidance technologies like forward collision braking and lane departure warning. However, some exclusive safety features are available only on the all-new Telluride. Drivers will greatly appreciate Kia’s class-exclusive Blind Spot View Monitor, which can display live video of your blind spots. The task of changing lanes will be made a lot safer. Safe Assist Exit Assist is another one of the Telluride’s exceptional safety technologies. By sensing oncoming motorists, this system lets you know when it’s safe to open your doors.


The 2020 Kia Telluride gives you more excellent buyer protection. It’s covered by one of the best warranties in the business. Kia gives you a 10-year/100,000-mile warranty and a 5-year/50,000-mile basic warranty. Meanwhile, Toyota only provides a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty and a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty. When driving off the lot in a new Telluride, you’ll have far more security.
