Now that you know a little more about how Kia's 2022 Telluride stacks up against the Toyota Highlander, you're probably itching to get behind the wheel. Notable amenities across the 2022 Telluride trims include a large Touchscreen Display, Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay™, and a high-powered audio system.

While both the 2022 Kia Telluride and 2022 Toyota Highlander are mid-size SUVs with standard three-row seating, they are not created equal when it comes to passenger space and comfort. Frankly, the Highlander's third row is cramped. Kia's Telluride provides far more legroom and headroom for third-row passengers, meaning it is the clear choice for any SUV shopper or family that plans to use all three rows for seating regularly.

The New Standard in Safety

The 2022 Telluride looks after you and your crew while cruising around Portland, OR, and beyond with help from the Kia Drive Wise safety suite. Select a new Telluride SUV to gain a host of intelligent safety systems, including Forward Collision-Avoidance with Pedestrian Detection, a Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision Warning, and Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist-Rear.

The Highlander offers some similar safety systems to the Kia SUV, but the Toyota model will cost you more. Keep in mind that the Telluride's starting MSRP is thousands of dollars less than the Highlander's, and that's even before comparing it with pricier Toyota options.
