Kia's first-ever three-row SUV is the largest vehicle it's ever made, and it's clear the automaker went all out with the new-for-2020 Telluride. On paper, it looks like it has all the goods to go up against competitors like the Volkswagen Atlas and Ford Explorer — including seating for up to eight, loads of standard safety features and plenty of technology — but how does it drive?
The 3.8-liter V-6 makes 291 horsepower and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission in either front- or all-wheel drive, and acceleration is more than acceptable, even at the higher elevation we tested it at.

On the road, the new Telluride is solid, sure-footed and stable. Its ride quality is excellent, even with the larger 20-inch wheels. It handles well, too, despite its length and heft. There's some body lean around sweeping corners, but the suspension always feels well controlled.
Overall, with the new Telluride, Kia has crafted a solid, comfortable, big SUV that performs beautifully. Watch the video above for more.
