2020 Kia Telluride vs 2020 Hyundai Palisade


2020 Kia Telluride vs 2020 Hyundai Palisade - Huntington Beach, CA  

If you're looking for a midsize SUV for yourself and your family, there are two all-new options in the 2020 model year - the Kia Telluride and the Hyundai Palisade. How do these two vehicles stack up against one another? Let's take a look at the new Kia Telluride vs the new Hyundai Palisade.

While similar in design and amenities, the 2020 Kia Telluride has some notable benefits. The Telluride offers versatile seating configuration with split-folding second-row seats with an available 12.3-inch infotainment display screen. The Telluride also has a more rugged exterior appearance compared to the Palisade's refined look.



While the Telluride has an element of glamour to its exterior, the Palisade has a considerably more basic look and fewer aesthetic details. In a departure from the styling trends of most automakers, Kia opted to give the Telluride a big, bold, look instead of a smaller, more rounded shape as other trends. 


With all the standard and available amenities it offers, the Telluride clearly surpasses the 2020 Hyundai Palisade with its stylish and well-equipped cabin.  The Telluride's interior highlights include: 

  • Touchscreen display that ranges from eight inches to 10.25 inches based on the trim level

  • Six USB charging ports throughout the cabin. 

  • One-touch sliding and folding 2nd-row seats

It doesn't stop there! The Telluride's second-row seats have a one-touch sliding and folding design, and allows drivers to choose between a seven-passenger configuration with captain's chairs or an eight-passenger configuration with bench-style seating.


Both the Telluride and the Palisade have an automatic transmission with eight speeds and both come standard with front-wheel drive. There is one engine that powers all trim levels of the 2020 Telluride and the Kia Palisade however, the Telluride has multiple driving modes that help you adapt to just about any weather condition and terrain.


The 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: 

  • Blind-spot monitoring system with a rear cross-traffic alert and a safe-exit assistance feature

  • App-based remote start and locking / unlocking

  • Keyless entry with push-button starting.
