The New 2020 Kia Telluride vs 2020 Hyundai Palisade

Full-size SUVs have been in high demand for a long time. The 2020 Kia Telluride and 2020 Hyundai Palisade are the epitome of what a modern-day SUV should be.

Both have premium levels of comfort, powerful engines that are efficient, and stunning design elements. Though both SUVs share similarities they remain unique.


The 2020 Kia Telluride is an exceptional beast on the roadways. This particular SUV comes equipped with a 3.8-liter V6. This engine is quite powerful and delivers 291 horsepower. Drivers can also expect to receive as much as 262 pound-feet of torque. Tackling all of life's adventures is possible with this vehicle. The Kia Telluride's maximum towing limit is listed at a whopping 5,000 pounds. Specific drive-modes are geared to match your environment including Snow and Slippery modes.

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade also comes equipped with a 3.8-liter GDI engine. This particular V6 can generate up to 291 horsepower. The new Palisade does offer Smart Cruise Control, and the HTRAC all-wheel drive is optional. Overall, this SUV is being outclassed on the performance side of things, but it still provides a great ride.


The 2020 Kia Telluride hosts an interior that's luxurious beyond belief. First and foremost, consumers can choose from several interior hues, such as brown, black, gray and butterscotch. The leather adorned cabin can seat up to eight individuals. The new Telluride offers heated/ventilated second-row seats as well as captain's chairs. This modern cabin has controls that are conveniently located to the driver. You and your passengers can utilize the strengths of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration and a 10.25-inch touchscreen display that hosts copious amounts of apps. Kia's UVO Link services allow for remote access to the SUV via your smartphone.

The 2020 Palisade can seat as many as seven people in its eight-person cabin. The driver's seat is eight-way powered, but you'll need to choose the SEL trim to get this feature. The same thing goes for the SUV's sunroof in which consumers will need to choose a specific trim level. The headroom and legroom provide plenty of space, and the seats are made of quilted leather. This vehicle hosts smartphone connectivity and a 10-inch touchscreen display.

The 2020 Kia Telluride dominates this comparison fully, but the Hyundai Palisade is a formidable contender.
