View Inventory

The 2020 Kia Telluride features ample space and smarter technology features. The Volkswagen Atlas also has its fair share of connective features and stylish design cues. However, Kia's new Telluride SUV is receiving praise from all types of sources.

This stylish Kia SUV offers connective features, a competitive warranty package and as much space as a minivan. The 2020 Kia Telluride is a flagship SUV making a name for itself in its competitive segment. If you're looking to see the 2020 Telluride versus the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas, read on.

The new Volkswagen SUV, the Atlas, will go head-to-head with the new Telluride design in specs and price. The new VW offers understated German design, but will that be enough to stack up to the Kia model?

Why the 2020 Kia Telluride Stands out More Than Any Other SUV

The new Kia Telluride features a sizeable power-to-weight ratio but a smaller engine, which means that it moves with confidence across New Orleans, LA, streets.

The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas offers a spacious interior, but so does the Telluride. It's easy to get to the backseat, and the moonroof runs the length of all three rows, giving drivers panoramic views of what's above. However, are these design feats enough to stand tall against the Telluride? Check out our data below:
