The Luxurious Kia Telluride SX Prestige X Pro AWD Delivers A Great Ride


The 2023 Kia Telluride SX Prestige X Pro AWD delivers on comfort and style, taking home the World Car Awards World Car of the Year in 2023.

What’s New?

Kia updated the Telluride with a beautiful inside curved digital display that is easy to see and to navigate. There are also new 18-nce black all-terrain tires, a raised suspension and new paint choices.



The interior is all luxury with an easy-to-use big touchscreen which is curved and fits well in the interior design. The beautiful leather seats are comfy with lumbar adjustments and both front and second-row seats offer heat and ventilation. We also loved the video screen rearview mirror and the Driver Talk feature, which directs the driver’s voice into the stereo speakers so riders in the back can easily hear the driver. 

The 3.8 liter V-6 engine gives 291 horsepower providing a smooth and powerful ride.

Driving is a breeze with their driver assist technologies including a smart cruise control, highway driving assist for lane changes and a forward collision avoidance with cyclist detection.


The new logo is a bit confusing and reads as “KV” instead of “KIA,” but the strong front grille design, raised roof rails and available accessories including bike and kayak carriers, roof cargo basket and a variety of roof rack crossbars make this model stylish and functional for any road trip.

The Kia Telluride SC Prestige X Pro AWD starts at $54,350.

I loved driving this model from LA to Las Vegas. I found it a nicer drive than many luxury SUV’s that are at a much higher price point. The interior was super comfortable, the tech was easy to use and the drive was smooth and a dream with all the driver assist options.
