Kia’s first big three-row crossover SUV (let’s all try to forget about the brief appearance of the 2009 Borrego), the Telluride seats seven or eight. It’s set to top the South Korean brand’s range of SUVs despite the company insisting it’s a mid-size model, going up against things like the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Honda Passport. But it’s not conventionally mid-size; the Telluride is on the big end of the mid-size group, much closer in size to the Volkswagen Atlas or Chevrolet Traverse. It has more passenger room even than a Chevrolet Tahoe SUV. If this is mid-size, I can’t imagine what a full-size crossover would look like. (source: cars.com) Good Looks It certainly looks the part of a full-size SUV. If comments from passersby and onlookers are anything to go by, the new Telluride is a styling hit from front to back. That big tiger-nose grille is flanked by LED running lights (white on most trims, amber on the sporty SX), and the clean body sides end in a downward swoop to the taillights that’s distinctive and modern. There are definitely elements from other automakers in the styling.
