There’s a new large Kia SUV making waves in the automotive industry, and its name is the Kia Telluride. This model was recently distinguished for its family friendly safety features and crash test ratings. We love talking about the highlights on new Kia cars in an effort to help our customers with their car shopping selection, so don’t miss out on the Kia Telluride stats!

The 2020 Kia Telluride, which is technically a crossover SUV, seats up to eight passengers and boasts so much space that it could be mistaken for a full-size SUV. This model also boasts class and a modern style that is simply unmistakable with a wide wheelbase, long hood, and premium interior features like one-touch sliding and folding second row seats. Recently, the SUV was also awarded an important designation — a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS.

This second-highest rating (just below Top Safety Pick+) was awarded after the Kia Telluride was tested in small off-set crashes, standard collision prevention, and its superior headlight performance. As an industry leader in automotive safety, the IIHS tests vehicles for each model year so that you, the customer, can make an informed decision about the safety of your prospective new car. That being said, if you’re looking for a model that the IIHS has approved as a Top Safety Pick, the Kia Telluride just might be the vehicle for you!
