Kia has one of the most exciting SUV lineups on the market. Some people will be choosing between the 2019 Kia Telluride and the 2019 Kia Sportage. While the full-size Telluride can seat up to eight passengers, the more compact Sportage is sized just right for smaller families. Both benefit from Kia’s excellent warranty. Let’s take a closer look at how they compare.

You can also take advantage of the Telluride’s 5,000-pound maximum towing capacity. A combined fuel economy rating of 23 mpg makes the Telluride an even more rewarding family vehicle. The new Kia Sportage gives you two four-cylinder powertrains to choose from.

Many drivers will be drawn to the 2020 Kia Telluride’s rugged styling. A stunning headlight design helps sets apart the Telluride from every other SUV in the segment. When equipped with 20-inch black-finished wheels, the Telluride has an even more breathtaking look. Some of the available paint options include Dark Moss, Ebony Black, and Everlasting Silver. The 2020 Kia Sportage has a sleek and sporty appearance. It’s easily among today’s most attractive small crossovers. Dual exhaust tips and larger 19-inch wheels highlight the Sportage SX’s powerful look.

Kia’s easy-to-use UVO infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone support comes standard. Automatic emergency braking is just one of several standard accident-avoidance technologies. Both SUVs offer premium upgrades like a powerful Harman Kardon sound system and ventilated front seats.
