How Does Hyundai Palisade Compare to Kia Telluride?

Check Out Both Mid-Size SUVs Right Here in Chico

Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride are both mid-size crossovers that are all-new to our northern California neighborhood. However, they're already attracting followings for their capabilities, creature comforts, tech-savvy, and safety commitments. Which is better? The experts at Chico Hyundai have the scoop. We've made it easy to compare Hyundai Palisade vs. Kia Telluride right here on the Web.

At first glance, both SUVs have a lot in common. Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride feature the same engine power ratings to drive the trip to Oroville, comparable city and highway mileage, similar AWD systems and towing capacities, and driver-assist options for navigating Magalia traffic that are on par with one another. They're even comparably equipped in-cabin, from standard and available comfort features to cargo space for a Paradise day-trip. That's not to mention they're similar on the technology front. However, where they diverge, you'll see how Hyundai Palisade gets the edge.

  • For one, Hyundai Palisade features a standard self-leveling suspension, all but ensuring a relaxing yet confident ride out to Corning CA. You'll need to opt for a tow package in Kia Telluride, however, to get one.
  • Secondly, Hyundai Palisade offers power-folding third-row seats, making configuration to take on cargo a breeze. This feature isn't offered in Kia Telluride.
  • Third, a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster is available in Hyundai Palisade, providing clear visuals of critical driving metrics. That in Kia Telluride is only a 7-inch model.
  • Fourth, Hyundai Palisade incorporates 12 speakers in its optional Harman Kardon premium audio system. Kia Telluride has a similar setup, but it has only ten speakers.
  • Fifth, in Hyundai Palisade, a Quiet Mode comes standard, so you can limit audio playback to the front seats when needed. You'll have to invest in a costly 10.25-inch touchscreen-equipped Kia Telluride trim to get the same feature.
  • Finally, automatic high beams come standard across the board in Hyundai Palisade. In Kia Telluride, they're standard only on the top trim.
