Since its debut for the 2020 model year, the Kia Telluride has been a leader in the midsize SUV market. With plenty of room for cargo and versatility for nearly any type of outing, the Telluride serves many purposes. Whether you’re making a big grocery run, taking the kids to soccer practice, or headed out on a family road trip, this crowd-pleaser can do it all.
Ford, Toyota, and Honda have dominated this segment for a long time. Still, Kia’s new(ish) contender is giving them a run and quickly winning over customers while also making a name for itself within the automotive industry. Racking up awards and accolades, the Telluride offers an attractive and thoughtful design, near-luxury features, and all the newest technology at a reasonable price. The three-row 2024 Kia Telluride near Santa Fe, NM offers ten trim levels, so that you can find the best fit for your family. Instead of discussing the entry-level Telluride, we’ve decided to take a good look at the other end of the lineup, the top-tier SX Prestige X-Line, to show you everything the Telluride has to offer.
If you enjoy comfort and convenience, the Telluride SX Prestige will surely grab your attention. Eight passengers can fit comfortably in the Telluride when you choose the second-row bench seat, or seven when you select the optional captain’s chairs for the second row. No matter which you choose, this trim is equipped with heated and ventilated first and second-row seats with Nappa leather trim and X-Line embossed on the front seats. The front seats are power-adjustable, with memory settings for the driver’s seat, smart posture control with thigh extension, and a 4-way lumbar adjustment. Fold the 50/50 split-folding second and 60/40 split-folding third rows down with the touch of a button to provide a variety of passenger and cargo combinations and one of the most spacious cabins in the segment. There’s also a dual-level cargo floor, with a hidden cargo area beneath the hatch floor.
Also included at this level is independent climate control, dual sunroofs, sound-absorbing windshield and front door window glass, solar control glass that’s designed to reduce interior heat build-up, a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel, ambient interior mood lighting with 64 colors, woodgrain interior accents, a suede headliner, and more.
While all trims of the Telluride come with lots of technology, the SX Prestige X-Line is overflowing with state-of-the-art tech. Dual 12.3-inch screens, one for infotainment, the other for instrumentation, create one continuous display across the dash, along with a 10-inch head-up display. A 10-speaker Harmon Kardon premium audio system will immerse you in sound, while Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration keeps your hands on the wheel. Six fast-charging USB-C ports (two for each row), a 12-volt power port for each row, a 110-volt power inverter, and a Wi-Fi hotspot ensure passengers can simultaneously charge and operate all their devices.
The SX Prestige X-Line trim of the 2024 Kia Telluride near Santa Fe, NM is equipped with a towing mode with adjustable weight profiles making the 5,500-pound towing capability easier to use. Drive mode selections for Economy, Comfort, Sport, and Snow combine with a Smart mode that learns the driver’s style. And Kia DriveWise driver-assist technology increases driving safety with new highway driving and lane change assist features, blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic, forward collision, and other collision avoidance functions.
For an all-purpose SUV for the family that doesn’t miss in any category, the 2024 Kia Telluride is an outstanding choice. It offers the feel of a luxury vehicle with the same attention to comfort and passenger needs, and capabilities under wide-ranging conditions.
