Kia K5 and Telluride Earn Their Spot as Best of the Best

Top Rated Vehicles for 2021 Include Kia K5 and Telluride 

When you buy a new vehicle, it’s important to do as much research as possible to ensure you’re getting the best vehicle for your driving needs. Of course, you hardly have the time to be comparing vehicle after vehicle in detail, so sometimes, it’s helpful to let the experts do it for you. 

We’re talking specifically about the experts over at Edmunds, who have recently announced their Top Rated awards for 2021, signifying the best vehicles for the 2021 model year. This year, that list includes two Kia models… the Kia K5 and the Kia Telluride. Both models came out on top in their respective sedan and SUV categories. In fact, this is the second year in a row the Telluride earned this recognition. 

Why Are the K5 and Telluride So Good?

Some of the success certainly comes down to the luxurious interiors and stunning design found in these vehicles. Both the K5 and the Telluride boast premium-level interior both in terms of design and quality, while still remaining available at an affordable price. 

Edmunds tests many other factors in making its determination as well. These include things like driving performance, comfort, technology found in the vehicle and storage space. Editor-In-Chief Alistair Weaver at Edmunds had this to say: “The K5’s ride is as smooth as those from some luxury sedans, and it makes a striking first impression thanks to sharp design that’s far more compelling than some of its pedestrian-looking competition. In terms of SUVs, the Telluride has truly changed our expectations for the segment thanks to its combination of high-quality design, family-friendly functionality and impressive value.
