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 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid receives no significant changes.The 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid comes with a good amount of standard equipment in the base LE trim. But we recommend upgrading to the midlevel XLE. On top of the standard systems such as forward collision mitigation and lane departure intervention, the XLE gets blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert as well as the upgraded 8.1-inch touchscreen.

PROS
Impressive fuel economy for a three-row crossover
Just-right size for many families
Added peace of mind from standard accident-avoidance tech
Quiet and compliant ride

CONS
Touchscreen and other controls may require an extra-long reach
Third-row seat isn't as roomy as those of many competitors
