Kia Telluride 2021: Kia’s largest SUV.

At the Detroit Auto Show, the premiere of the new KIA Telluride took place — the largest car in the history of the company for all time, even the Mohave frame SUV turned out to be a little smaller in size.

Recall that the appearance of this model was preceded by the concept of the same name, first shown back in two thousand and sixteen.

The appearance of the new Kia Telluride (photo and price) was drawn in the Californian design studio of the brand, and this is understandable, because the key market for this giant is the United States.

The car received a wide radiator grille, at the bottom and top framed by chrome strips, vertical headlights and «fangs» located under them near the air ducts in the front bumper.

In general, the exterior of the crossover turned out to be more angular than the soplatform Hyundai Palisade, which made the Telluride look more brutal.

The austere image is emphasized by an almost vertical massive front end, a straight roofline, as well as a chrome trim on the doors running parallel to it.

The new body of Kia Telluride 2020-2021 also stands out for its L-shaped taillights, wide protective linings made of unpainted plastic over the wheel arches and sills, the “Telluride” lettering on the edge of the bonnet and on the trunk lid, as well as the chrome edging of the entire perimeter of the glazing with a slight rise on center rack.

The interior of the crossover with three rows of seats can have either an 8-seat configuration or a 7-seat one — with two captain’s chairs in the second row.

Unfortunately, the woodgrain and polished aluminum inserts on the front are made of plastic, but the 10.25-inch multimedia touchscreen tablet (supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) on the center console is impressive for its size.

And there are also ceiling vents of the ventilation system for passengers of the second row, a special microphone for communication between the driver and passengers in the gallery, the function of turning off the rear speakers (useful in case the passengers dozed behind on a long journey), six USB connectors (two on each row ), Bluetooth support for two smartphones at the same time, etc.
