Key Advantages of the 2021 Kia Telluride

While the Telluride and Hyundai's Palisade are similar in some ways -- including in overall performance, efficiency, seating capacity and size -- the Telluride surpasses its rival from Hyundai in many areas. If you want more space, more comfort, a more upscale interior and more advanced safety features, then you want the 2021 Kia Telluride.

When these two mid-size, three-row SUVs go head-to-head, the Telluride comes out on top with its more generous cargo volume behind the third row, standard safety equipment like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, and standard synthetic leather upholstery. Hyundai's Palisade comes standard with cloth seating instead of faux leather like the Telluride. You also won't find other standard Telluride features on the Palisade base model, like remote engine start and push-button ignition.

Did we mention that the well-equipped 2021 Kia Telluride boasts a lower starting MSRP than the 2021 Hyundai Palisade? That's right; you can get into a new Telluride with its loads of standard features not found on the Hyundai at a lower starting MSRP! How's that for Kia value?
