Many larger family SUVs can suffer from a boxy, minivan-style appearance, but the Kia Telluride certainly isn't one of them. It's an attractive SUV that's shaped more like a smaller, sportier compact crossover, but on a grander scale.

Every version of the 2021 Telluride has a 3.8L naturally aspirated V6 engine making 291 horsepower and 262lb-ft of torque. The power is passed through an intelligent eight-speed automatic transmission to front-wheel drive as standard, although every model can have an all-wheel drive as an option.
This configuration is a punchy performer, propelling the Telluride's hefty frame from 0-100 kmh in just 7.1 seconds.
For such a large car, the Telluride handles beautifully, thanks in part to the silky-smooth transmission which responds quickly and in all the right places. The car has power in reserve for highway passing, but is also perfectly happy under stop-start city conditions where the transmission delivers quick acceleration from standing starts. What's more, even at highway speeds the engine noise in the cabin is minimal, creating a calm driving feel that's slower to cause fatigue.
Although the Telluride is ideal for carrying larger families around the city, it also has a few features which make it a great off-road candidate too. Aside from the powerful engine, there's an optional self-levelling rear suspension, and a generous eight inches of ground clearance. Lastly, it also boasts a towing capacity of up to 2,268kg for when you need to haul your gear along the trail.
The standard Telluride boasts an 8" infotainment touchscreen featuring the usual smartphone culprits of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, with higher trims upgrading the screen size to 10.3". Multiple USB points are standard, while wireless device charging is an option in the higher trims.
The 2021 Kia Telluride has already earned a five-star rating in crash tests from the NHTSA, while the previous 2020 model was named a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS. Adding to the overall safety excellence are several active systems, with the key features including:
Higher models also feature a head-up display, relaying essential information while the driver keeps their eyes on the road.
The 2021 Kia Telluride range starts at $46.195 for the base EX AWD trim, rising to $55,695 for the high-end Nightsky model.
The Telluride is a cut above its three-row competition, combining power, comfort, and utility like few other SUVs. Book a test drive of the 2021 model from our Calgary location, and see for yourself just how satisfying a modern SUV can be.
