Compare the New Hyundai Palisade vs Kia Telluride

Compare the Hyundai Palisade to the SUV Competition

It's been a year since Hyundai first introduced Washington drivers to their new cutting-edge, exciting SUV, the Hyundai Palisade. With its eye-catching SUV style and spacious interior design with three rows, the new Palisade has a lot to offer drivers, and the team at Korum Hyundai is proud to help you get to know it better.

While the Hyundai Palisade turns heads and delivers impressive performance, we know it's not the only family-friendly SUV competing for your attention. To help you understand all the ways the Palisade is the standout option for your next vehicle, we've put together this comparison research. We hope it helps you make the right decision for your next SUV.

The Hyundai Palisade vs. the Kia Telluride

Similar in size and power to the Hyundai Palisade, the Kia Telluride is also still in its first generation as a new SUV option for Tacoma families. Both models have standard V6 power and 291 horsepower, and both models have similar exterior dimensions. However, when you dig a little further and compare the two side by side in a number of minute, yet important, areas, you'll find that the Hyundai Palisade comes out ahead.

We've done the research for you, and we're ready to help guide you and show you the ways in which our new SUV dominates the competition:

  • MSRP. Both SUVs offer Auburn, WA drivers a similar starting price of around $32,000. However, you'll find that the Hyundai Palisade has the slight edge here, where most first-time buyers spend an average of around $32,525 for the Hyundai and $33,187 for the Kia Telluride.
  • Standard features. Look for more innovative safety and tech features to come standard on the Hyundai Palisade than the Kia Telluride. Every Palisade comes with standard rear parking sensors to help you safely back up, while the Telluride doesn't, and every Palisade comes with standard Rear Seat Quiet Mode, which can help little ones in the backseat ride in comfort by cutting sound to backseat speakers. The Kia SUV doesn't have a rear seat quiet option.
  • Optional features. When it comes to the standard roster of tech and comfort features, these two SUVs offer nearly identical lists of the amenities drivers want. However, you'll find that the Hyundai Palisade allows you to upgrade and personalize your SUV experience quicker than the Kia Telluride. For example, starting at the second trim level in the lineup, the Palisade has options that includes such luxury features as a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats. With the Kia Telluride, these options aren't available until much higher in the lineup and are only available for drivers who choose the top-tier models.
  • Interior design and comfort. Both models have three rows of seating standard and space for either seven or eight people. But the Hyundai Palisade is more flexible inside, letting you choose either a bench seat or captain's chairs as an option for the second row on the second trim at no extra cost. The same choice for the Kia will cost you more because it's only available as a special package. Plus, the Palisade is more spacious inside and comfortable for you and your passengers. Look for more legroom than the Telluride, especially in the front seat, and marvel at the incredible amount of space in the Palisade's third row, where even adults can sit in perfect comfort.
