The 2020 Kia Telluride has a boxy, modern look.There’s substance to the 2020 Kia Telluride’s style.

Pros
Chic looks
Standard safety gear
Spacious, airy interior
Comfortable

Cons
Turbo rivals are quicker
So-so mpg
May be too big for some
Crowded SUV field

With enormous proportions, the boldly styled Telluride is Kia's biggest crossover. Although it's based on the Sorento, the 2020 Telluride is more interesting to look at, with nifty designs for its head- and taillights and a boxy, angular silhouette.

Pros
Excellent Style,
Cavernous interior,
loads of tech.

Cons
Intrusive adaptive cruise,
no upgraded engine option.

The 2020 Kia Telluride ranked #1 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Kia Telluride has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 20 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Gentle ride
Large cargo hold
Lots of safety features
Handsome cabin

Cons
Less agile than rivals

The 2018 Lexus RX 350L is an all-new model.The amount of standard equipment on the RX 350L is impressive, but we recommend getting the Luxury trim level. On top of standard equipment such as tri-zone climate control, LED lighting and a power-folding third-row seat, the Luxury trim level adds heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, upgraded leather upholstery, and heated second-row seats.

PROS
Impeccable cabin finished with top-quality materials and construction
Advanced safety features come standard
Wide cargo bay makes it easy to load luggage and groceries

CONS
Optional tech interface is clever but distracting to use while driving
Less overall cargo capacity than competitors
Third-row space is tight for anyone other than small children

By:

Don’t let the RX’s daring style fool you—it’s still the plush-riding crossover it’s always been, but it’s also a technological leap forward from its segment-defining predecessor. A 295-hp V-6, eight-speed automatic, and front-wheel drive are standard; all-wheel drive is optional.

Pros
Quiet operation,
cushy ride,
comfortable for five.

Cons
Alien styling,
miserly cargo hold,
uncomfortable for seven.
