2020 Kia Telluride vs. 2019 Volkswagen Atlas

black kia telluride compared to blue vw atlas

Over the last couple of years, we have seen some pretty great releases from Kia. Most notably, the Kia Stinger wowed drivers for the 2018 model year, and now we are being shown the 2020 Kia Telluride SUV. The Stinger was the first executive sports car of its kind in the lineup, and now the Telluride is set to be the largest model ever released by Kia.

It’s only fair that we put the Telluride up against a competitor. The Volkswagen Atlas, while not out for the 2020 model year yet, is another relatively new SUV on the market and we thought this would be a great matchup. Check out how these SUVs compare below.
