Are you on the hunt for a new crossover that is on the larger end of the spectrum? Then you have come to the right place! Here at Bridgewater Kia, we offer the all-new 2020 Kia Telluride. This new model has only been available for a short while, but it has already become a favorite choice for our customers. While our customers are impressed by the comfort and performance of the 2020 Kia Telluride, many of them ask if it is right for them or if they should go with a model that has been on the market for a long time – like the Toyota Highlander. To help you see what makes the 2020 Kia Telluride the better buy, we have placed it in a comparison with the popular V6 variation of the 2019 Toyota Highlander.

What Makes the 2020 Kia Telluride Better Than the 2019 Toyota Highlander?

While the Telluride and Highlander both offer similar engine performance, we love that the Telluride offers more cargo space – especially behind the third-row seats. We also love how comfortable the Telluride is with its supportive seats and ergonomic steering wheel. These comforts are essential for long road trips and will help keep our back free of pain. 

We would also like to note that the styling of the 2019 Toyota Highlander is looking rather stale – and EVERYONE is driving one. This can make finding your vehicle especially difficult in the packed parking lot at your local Target store on Saturdays. It can also be difficult for your child to see you at the busy school pick-up zone. 

With the 2020 Kia Telluride, you will enjoy fresh and adventure-ready styling that we have not seen on the crossover/SUV market for a long time. In addition to fitting in perfectly for your next adventure out in the wilderness, you will easily spot your Telluride in the busiest and most crowded of places.
