The Kia Telluride SUV, which went on sale in the USA this spring, is the best choice for family buyers in the large SUV segment, according to Edmunds analysts.
Automotive experts called the large Kia Telluride SUV the best in its class for families. The model is ahead of the both Volkswagen Atlas and Subaru Ascent.
Its main advantages are considered to be a powerful and efficient V6 engine with a combined fuel consumption of 23 mpg, good handling, as well as the family options in the cabin.
The powertrain in addition to good dynamics allows towing a camper weighing up to 5000 pounds.
In the cabin, family passengers will be able to use a quiet mode that can turn off the speakers in the rear seats, as well as several USB ports and 12-volt sockets for charging devices.
As expected, numerous active aids are also offered, including an innovative real-time camera in a sensor cluster that shows blind spots when the turn signal is turned on.

The starting price of Kia‘s largest SUV is $31,690. The top version will cost from $43,490.
