What Makes the 2020 Kia Telluride Better than the 2019 Honda Pilot?

When it comes to size and performance, the 2020 Kia Telluride and 2019 Honda Pilot are similar. However, we love that the 2020 Kia Telluride offers a little more space behind the third-row seats, which can be extremely helpful when bringing along coolers and gear on your next camping trip – or even bringing home the groceries! 

We also love the styling of the 2020 Kia Telluride much more than the 2019 Honda Pilot. The 2020 Kia Telluride sports classic and rugged SUV styling cues that make it at home out in the wilderness. The 2019 Honda Pilot, on the other hand, looks incredibly stale and befitting of a mom lugging her kids to school and soccer practice – and it is hard to find in the packed parking lot at Target on Saturdays. 

It should also be noted that the base trim of the 2020 Kia Telluride comes complete with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and the UVO infotainment system. Similar features are not available in the base trim of the 2019 Honda Pilot.
