The 2021 Kia Telluride is simply one of the best options on the market when it comes to SUVs. It’s too far to call anything “flawless,” but when it comes to the Telluride, it may as well be. As such, the 2021 Kia Telluride has continued to outpace other SUVs and win award after award.

Everyone loves the Kia Telluride

Simply put, the Kia Telluride, as far as anyone knows, can do no wrong. Not only do car reviewers love the car, but so do actual customers themselves. After all, it’s one thing for a review site to give the Telluride a good review, it’s another thing if nobody wants to buy one. But in the Telluride’s case, not only does it have great reviews, but people simply are buying the Telluride quickly and in large numbers.

That’s probably to be expected since the Telluride sits at a sweet spot for many American families. At a starting price tag of about $32,000, it’s not a cheap car, but it’s also not an expensive one. As such, that price tag allows many families to afford and enjoy the Telluride. 

When it comes to enjoying the car, families can do that too since the Telluride has a lot of luxurious and smart features that simply provide a great experience. That said, the Telluride has only been on sale for two model years, so its longevity is unknown right now. Regardless, as long as Kia keeps making Tellurides, it seems like the Telluride will keep winning awards.

The 2021 Kia Telluride is the best family car

Shopping for a family car can be a difficult chore, as that car has to be many things and then some. After all, that car’s going to be driving your family around, and certainly, most folks are going to want the best for their family. That’s why, when Good Housekeeping took a look at the family car market, it had a long list of things to keep track of. Cars not only have to be safe, but they also have to be comfortable and practical for families.

As many Kia Telluride owners may know by now however, the Telluride met and exceeded those expectations. Good Housekeeping ultimately declared the Telluride as the best family car in the full-size SUV segment. Not only does the Telluride have three, spacious rows of seats, but its interior, being as luxurious as it is, means that families can experience some ridiculous comfort for the Telluride’s relatively affordable $32,000 price tag.

Not only was the Telluride comfortable to be in, but it was also comfortable to drive in, according to Good Housekeeping. And of course, not only does the Telluride have a huge suite of smart safety features that’ll keep the family safe, but it also has plenty of practical features. In fact, Good Housekeeping wrote that when its seats are folded down, the Telluride can fit up to 35 carry-on bags.

Smaller options than the Telluride

The Kia Telluride may have taken home the top prize for its segment, but ultimately, many families simply don’t need a $32,000 SUV that’s capable of seating seven to eight people. For those folks, Good Housekeeping has other good recommendations. 

For example, in the compact SUV segment, Good Housekeeping said that the 2021 Honda CR-V was the best in its class for families. This shouldn’t be too surprising, as the CR-V is popular with critics and customers, just like the Telluride is. Another great smaller option is another Honda. Good Housekeeping said that one of the best midsize sedans for families is the 2021 Honda Accord. This frankly isn’t too shocking either, since the Accord is very popular.
