Compare Kia Telluride vs. Hyundai Palisade

Kia Telluride 

See How the Kia Telluride Stacks Up Against the Hyundai Palisade at Dulles Kia

Choosing a new SUV for your Leesburg drive can take careful consideration to ensure you have the right fit. For large, luxury-styled SUVs, the Kia Telluride is a class leader that you won't want to miss! Three rows of seats, impressive capability, innovative technology, and an array of safety features come together in the reliable Kia Telluride, offering the full experience from the moment you climb into the driver's seat.

However, new SUV options around Sterling aren't just the Telluride lineup. Rivals like the Hyundai Palisade offer a similar experience to the Kia Telluride, making it challenging to choose the one that best suits your needs. Here at Dulles Kia, we encourage you to explore our comparison below, where we detail the benefits of the Kia Telluride lineup and why we prefer it over the Hyundai Palisade.

Let us know if you have any questions today on what you can expect from the Telluride driver's seat!


Both SUVs equip a standard 3.8-liter V6 that delivers 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, making it a dead heat underneath the hood. However, the Kia Telluride can take you further with one tank of gas, thanks to a fuel economy rating of 20/26 mpg city/highway. With the Hyundai Palisade, you'll get the same performance on the highway, but you will only manage 19 mpg in the city. The Telluride and Palisade can tow up to 5,000 pounds if you need to attach a trailer around Chantilly.


Seat comfort should be a premium option for many SUVs, but the Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade make it a priority for their lineups. Both SUVs seat up to eight passengers, and either option can switch out the second-row bench seat for Captain's Chairs. Stadium-style seating allows passengers in the rear to have a clear view of the road ahead, while front and second-row passengers find seating that is well-cushioned and spacious with ample headroom and legroom. However, if you're looking for more cargo space to work with, the Kia Telluride narrowly holds the edge - every cubic foot of space counts when trying to maximize your family's luggage needs! The Kia Telluride offers a maximum of 87 cubic feet, while the Palisade offers only 86.4 cubic feet. Behind the second row of seats, the Telluride leads with 46 cubic feet to 45.8 cubic feet. Behind the third row, the Telluride offers 21 cubic feet, 3.0 more cubic feet than the Palisade.


Looking to enjoy a smooth, enjoyable drive around Arlington in your new SUV? The Kia Telluride can equip you with more standard features and amenities than its Hyundai competitor. Connectivity lovers will enjoy the Telluride's standard 10.25-inch touchscreen, complete with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. While the Hyundai Palisade also offers integration for your Apple and Android devices, an eight-inch screen is the best the base trim level can do - a 10.25-inch touchscreen will cost you more. The Kia Telluride offers six standard USB ports to the Hyundai Palisade's five ports - if you need to charge up multiple devices, the Telluride makes it easier!


Both SUVs earned a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS for 2022, making them perfect for families on the go looking for more peace of mind from their next vehicle. The Telluride boasts numerous driver assistance features, including forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, and lane-keeping assist. The Hyundai Palisade closely matches the Telluride with a similar array of features. However, the Telluride offers its base model nearly $500 cheaper than its Hyundai rival, allowing you to enjoy unique features at a more affordable cost.
