Frequently Asked Questions - the Kia Sportage vs. the Kia Telluride

While both of these popular Kia models deliver the SUV style and elevated ground clearance that Texas drivers appreciate, each brings its own qualities and performance to the table. We've highlighted some of those key differences for you here, using some frequently asked questions for illustration.

I have a large family - which Kia SUV has three rows?

A. The Kia Telluride. A seven-passenger SUV, the Telluride is spacious and powerful, with three rows of seating standard. The Kia Sportage, meanwhile, is a stylish and compact SUV with two rows that can seat up to five people. Both offer plenty of headroom, legroom, and cargo room to keep everyone happy, but the Telluride will help you ferry more passengers around town if that's your goal.

I have a camper or boat - how much can these Kia SUVs tow?

A. The Kia Telluride has a top towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, while the Kia Sportage can tow up to 2,000 pounds. This means both SUVs have useful utility ratings and selecting your perfect fit will come down to how heavy your camper or small boat is.

How about cargo space - how much can I squeeze into these SUVs?

A. Whether it's sporting equipment like golf clubs, camping gear, or groceries, both SUVs have ample cargo space behind their rear liftgates that can help you carry plenty of the stuff you need to take with you. Behind the third row of the Telluride, you'll find 21 cubic feet of space. Meanwhile, behind the backseats of the Sportage, you can expect a little more than 30 cubic feet. Plus, both SUVs have backseats that fold to accommodate more gear, making them versatile and flexible in a pinch.

How do these two SUVs compare in power and output?

A. It depends on what you're looking for. While every Kia Telluride gets standard power from a robust V6 powertrain, delivering 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, the Sportage comes with two four-cylinder possibilities. Base power for the smaller SUV is 181 horsepower, with a sporty, turbocharged upgrade available offering up to 240 horsepower.
