Which model is more versatile: Telluride or Pilot?

We know that you are not just getting a three-row SUV just for the passenger room. You actually want to use it too, and Kia understands that.

In fact, if you wanted to look at this comparison in a different way, the Telluride still offers 21 cubic-feet of cargo room with all the seats up and the Pilot only offers 16.5 cubic-feet of cargo room with all the seats up. Talk about a difference.

What about features? The Telluride comes with a huge number of features standard. Not only do you get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard features, but you also get automatic headlights, forward collision avoidance, lane keeping assist, safe exit assist, and so much more.

Reliability should be a concern for every new car buyer, but as you were drawn to both Kia and Honda, it is definitely something that you’re already considering. You will be pleased to learn that not only does the Telluride offer an impressive powertrain warranty, it also has a bumper-to-bumper warranty of 5 years or 60,000 miles where the Pilot only comes with 3 years or 36,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper protection.
