4 Reasons to Buy a 2023 Kia Telluride, Not a Toyota Highlander

The Kia Telluride and the Toyota Highlander are two of the most popular three-row midsize SUVs available. 

However, the Telluride has some advantages over the Highlander. Here are four reasons to buy a 2023 Kia Telluride, not a 2023 Toyota Highlander. 

2023 Kia Telluride provides more interior space than the 2023 Toyota Highlander

The Telluride offers larger inside room than the Highlander, which is the primary argument in favour of choosing a 2023 Kia Telluride over a 2023 Toyota Highlander. 

Although Kia hasn't yet made the official 2023 Telluride specs public, they are probably identical to the 2022 Telluride.

Both SUVs can accommodate up to eight passengers, although the Telluride has a larger overall passenger volume (178.1 cu ft) than the Highlander (141.1 cu ft). 

The Telluride's third-row seats benefit most from the additional passenger room. Rear legroom is increased by 3.7 inches over the Highlander.

The Telluride has additional storage room than the Highlander as well. 

It has an overall load capacity of 87.0 cu ft and a freight capacity of 21.0 cu ft behind the third row of seats.

The Highlander, in contrast, has an overall load capacity of 84.3 cu ft and a rear cargo capacity of 16.0 cu ft.

2023 Telluride has better off-road capabilities than the 2023 Highlander

The Telluride offers superior off-road capabilities than the Highlander, 

which is the second argument in favour of choosing a 2023 Kia Telluride over a 2023 Toyota Highlander.
