The Kia Telluride Is Already Cheaper Than You’d Expect

It is easy to see why people love the new Kia Telluride. The sporty SUV balances practicality and luxury with a price that an average family can afford. It is easily one of the best looking full-sized SUVs on the market, and with the addition of third-row seating, it fills a niche in the market that desperately needs more attention. The Kia Telluride is probably on your list of SUVs to test drive if you are looking for a new family vehicle, and after just a few minutes in the car, you will be excited to realize how much of a bargain it is, even brand new.

A new generation means used models

The Kia Telluride only hit the production line in 2019, so there aren’t a lot of older model years on the used car market. This can be a good thing because it means the SUV itself is pretty unique. The downside is that none of them of depreciated much because they are still so new. With the introduction of the 2021 model year, the two previous years will become old news, making them even more affordable than they were brand new.

Luxury, space, and affordability describes the Kia Telluride

There aren’t a lot of SUVs that offer three rows of seating, let alone one like the Kia Telluride. Because they require more size, third-row seating SUVs are typically more expensive. The Telluride, on the other hand, is pretty reasonably priced for an SUV of its size. Even more importantly, the space in the third row is actually useable, and not cramped and uncomfortable like some other models.

Impressive off-road capabilities

The Kia Telluride isn’t just your average pavement queen. In fact, for as capable as the vehicle is on the road, it’s just as capable off of it. While it may not keep up with the crazy trails that most overlanding fanatics take, that doesn’t mean it can’t handle some basic side-roads and muddy trails. This is part of what makes the Telluride an all-around bargain of a vehicle. Combined with the interior space, luxury, and modern styling, the addition of being able to handle your car in any road condition or off the road is just an added benefit.
