Searching for a luxurious SUV with plenty of space for both passengers and cargo? During your search, you have likely come across the Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade. While both vehicles certainly have their merits and share a number of similarities, only one can earn that coveted spot on your driveway. That is why Riverchase Kia has compared the Kia Telluride vs. Hyundai Palisade to show you which of these stellar SUVs is more deserving of your hard-earned dollar. 

Telluride vs. Palisade: Price

Both the Kia Telluride and the Hyundai Palisade allow you to enjoy a wealth of sophisticated amenities without that steep luxury car price tag. As mentioned before, these SUVs are similar in terms of reliability, interior features, acceleration, and handling. However, you will be able to take advantage of all of this and more for less when you opt for the Kia Telluride.

The Telluride has a lower base price of $31,990 MSRP compared to the base price of $32,525 for the Palisade. It would be a small difference if it weren’t for the advantages that come with the Telluride already.

Telluride vs. Palisade: Safety

As with many of their features, the 2021 Kia Telluride vs. Hyundai Palisade are pretty similar when it comes to safety — both 2020 models earned 5 stars from the NHTSA, and both took home Top Safety Picks for that year as well. Here’s where they differ:

  • The Palisade includes standard automatic high-beams as a safety precaution
  • The Telluride includes superior safety tech in standard blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

Telluride vs. Palisade: Performance and Efficiency

While the Palisade and Telluride have a similar powertrain, the Telluride comes out on top in terms of efficiency. With the Telluride, you have the same level of power, but you will spend less time at Hoover gas stations. 

2021 Kia Telluride:

  • 3.8L V6 Engine

2021 Hyundai Palisade:

Telluride vs. Palisade: Interior

When it comes to interior features, each SUV is equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD Radio, Bluetooth, and five USB ports. However, the Telluride once again has a few advantages over its related rival. This SUV from Kia comes with standard synthetic leather upholstery, while the standard offering for the Palisade is cloth seating surfaces. If you need more space for cargo, the Telluride is again your best bet. It offers 21 cubic feet of cargo space compared to 18 cubic feet for the Palisade.
