Aloof as the absorbing Stinger GT acme Kia’s commuter car range, the Telluride is the brand’s biggest, best big-ticket SUV. But clashing the Stinger, the Telluride isn’t advancing to the Britain – it’s size, bulk and 3.8-litre V6 agent aren’t abnormally UK-friendly, apparently.
But it’s not absolutely irrelevant. What the Telluride does for us here, is accord us a acceptable adumbration on the administration for approaching Kia SUVs (think next-generation Sorento and Sportage). It’s addition admonition of how far the Korean cast has appear in agreement of affection and dynamics – as able-bodied as its adeptness to claiming exceptional brands at a atom of the cost.

Let’s get that admeasurement affair out of the way first, though. At 5,001mm long, it’s aloof over 50mm best than a Volvo XC90, yet 163mm beneath than a BMW X7. It’s narrower than both, though. That breadth gives you three rows of seats with two ‘captain’s chairs’ in the average row and a three-seat bank appropriate at the back. Legroom is acceptable wherever you’re sitting and there’s still a appropriate boot. The aback row of seats folds collapsed into the floor, as you’d expect.
It feels appealing big as you ascend aboard, with a aerial and adequate active position and a acceptable appearance out beyond all four corners. Yet the better abruptness of all is how chic it feels – abnormally accustomed the $44,585 (around £36,300) account bulk of our top-spec SX four-wheel drive model.

Dynamically, the Telluride does what an SUV needs to do. It’s not abundant fun to drive, nor is it meant to be. But it rides able-bodied and is quiet on the move – apparently the best important attributes of a car such as this.
The council isn’t abnormally absolute and there’s a fair bit of anatomy angular if the off-ramp on the freeway proves tighter than expected. And in animosity of there actuality a 3.8-litre V6 beneath the bonnet, it doesn’t feel all that fast. Its 287bhp and 355Nm of torque will move you forth sedately, while the eight-speed auto accouterment calmly alike back you do ask for a (little) bit added power.
