2020 Kia Telluride vs 2020 Hyundai Palisade

Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade Comparison - Renton, WA

Both the Kia Telluride and the Hyundai Palisade are all-new for 2020. Although similar in appearance to one another, there are important differences between these two mid-size SUVs. Curious about the Kia Telluride vs Hyundai Palisade? Let's take a look at these two vehicles and see how they compare. 


Both vehicles offer a standard 3.8-liter V6 engine producing 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque going out through an eight-speed automatic. The Kia Telluride however, has a combined gas mileage of 23 MPG compared to the Hyundai Palisade's 22 MPG. This seemingly small difference in gas mileage leads to major savings over time. 


The Kia Telluride interior offers the maximum available space in its almost 197 in. long body. The 2020 Telluride interior beats out the 2020 Palisade by including more shoulder, hip & head room, which makes long drives fun for up to 3 rows of passengers with the available third row seating. 

It also includes more cargo room for every possible storage configuration including specs of  21 cu. ft. behind the third row compared to the Hyundai Palisade's 18 cu. Ft.

Both the Kia Telluride and the Hyundai Palisade offer seating for up to eight people.


Both the 2020 Hyundai Palisade and 2020 Kia Telluride get long lists of active driver assistance tech as standard however the Highway Driving Assist package, which is standard on the Telluride EX and SX, is part of an option package on the Palisade SEL. Blind spot monitoring is also standard across the board on the Telluride, while only SEL and Limited grades of the Palisade get the feature standard. Both the Kia Telluride and the Hyundai Palisade come with seven standard air bags.


The 2020 Telluride and Palisade have nearly identical base prices: $31,690 for the Kia and $31,550 for the Hyundai, but the Telluride has more standard features that the Palisade saves for pricier models including a blind-spot monitoring system with a rear cross-traffic alert and a safe-exit assistance feature, app-based remote start and locking /unlocking, and keyless entry with push-button starting. 

The 2020 Kia Telluride was also named by the Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA) as the "Mid- and Full-Size CUV" category winner at the association's 25th annual Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year event.
