2020 Kia Telluride vs 2019 Nissan Pathfinder

Today’s SUVs need to have a healthy balance of brute strength and refined interior comfort, which is why many of them simply fall flat in the areas that matter most to consumers. Luxury and raw power don’t often coexist very well in the same models, which makes it all the more impressive when this actually occurs. It’s because of that that we’re proud to introduce you to the 2020 Kia Telluride, one of the top SUVs on the current American market. Thanks to a rugged-yet-classy design, as well as all the precision and convenience you need to succeed, it’s a top choice for just about anyone. But how does it match up against competitors like, say, the Nissan Pathfinder, another SUV icon?

That’s the question that we want to tackle today – keep reading with our Boucher Kia team as we show you what makes each of these models tick!

Though its towing and payload specs don’t quite compare to that of the Pathfinder, there’s no denying that the 2020 Telluride offers a much more comprehensive driving experience than any of its top competition. It features available Active On-Demand All-Wheel Drive and a 10.25-inch touchscreen interface (with a Head-up Display), both of which far exceed what the Pathfinder is able to deliver. Plus, with the following driver assistance innovations, the Telluride is unparalleled in its tech advancement, and by far your best choice in today’s automotive market:

  • Blind Spot View Monitor
  • Highway Driving Assist
  • Safe Exit Assist
  • Surround View Monitor
  • Many more!


Knowing all of this, it should come as no surprise that the 2020 Telluride attained “Best in Show” designation at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year. Contact our Boucher Kia team today to get more info or schedule a test drive of this class leader – you’ll be glad you did!
