In a big city like Chicago, the Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride can be spotted on the streets every hour, affirming their popularity in the Midwest. Editor Sommer and Motorsports Correspondent Daryl compare notes from their illustrious first drive reviews with the 2020 Kia Telluride SX V6 AWD and the 2020 Palisade SEL AWD to see which a lux lover and a sports-toy fiend would put on top.
The all-new Kia Telluride dropped last year and has quickly became the new drip of 2020. The full-sized SUV has the latest safety and comfort technology plus a very efficient 3.8 liter V6 engine and effortless 8-speed transmission.
The Kia Sorento may seem like an underdog, but it’s a powerhouse in the segment. Fan’s love the spacious omni-functional leather cabin replete with customizable tech. For MY2019 designers give the SUV a slimmer frame and a more powerful V6.
Boasted as a go-anywhere do-anything strapping SUV, the new Telluride offers rugged capability and advanced interior comfort.
The brand new AWD V6 sports whip has 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque and a tricked out cockpit wtih Nappa leather, a Harmon Kardon system, Heads up Display and tons of safety technology- ALL STANDARD!
As part of its mission to triple their alternative fuel vehicles by 2020, Kia’s Niro PHEV is the fourth vehicle produced under Kia Motors’ Eco Dynamics brand alongside the Optima PHEV and the Soul EV. We reviewed both the gas-powered Niro and the Niro Plug-in. While no one here is hatin on plug-ins we couldn’t help but wonder, does the already-efficient Niro needed a plug-in companion with less sauce?
The 2017 Kia Sorento is a truly versatile big-body with an athletic performance, efficient drivetrain and spacious interior with premium perks.
Kia blends their balanced performance principal with a sporty drivetrain and more resilient chassis.
The new Sorento gives buyers a wider more aggressive stance, advanced dynamic driving technology and a more spacious lux interior.
