2020 Kia Telluride Safety



As the biggest SUV yet from Kia, the 2020 Kia Telluride is an all-new model that can seat up to seven or eight people. With such a huge capacity, there comes the question of safety on the road. Does the 2020 Kia Telluride provide a safe and secure driving experience for both the driver and passengers? Which safety features does the SUV come with?
Although the 2020 Kia Telluride has not been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), customers don’t have to worry about the level of safety the vehicle provides. It has been named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS). This Top Safety Pick applies to the range-topping Telluride SX models that come equipped with unique headlights.

In every crash test conducted by the IIHS, all the other models of the Telluride, including the SX, earned top “Good” scores for their body and frame. The automatic emergency braking system, which is a standard feature across all ranges, also earned a “Superior” rating as it could avoid forward crashes at both 12 and 25 mph.


Wide Range Of Safety Features
Besides, the 2020 Kia Telluride comes equipped with a number of driver assistance features. These include adaptive cruise control with stop and go blind spot view monitoring, safe exit assist, forward collision avoidance, active lane control, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
The active lane control that the Telluride comes with is powered by a system from Kia is known as the Highway Driving Assist, which can read road markings and automatically changes lanes as required. The blind spot view monitor comes with a live camera view of the driver’s blind spots when you activate the turn signal. The safe exit assist, on the other hand, warns the driver when a bicycle or a vehicle approaches a parked car, automatically locking the doors to prevent opening them into traffic, thus avoiding collision.
Even though the top-ranking Telluride SX comes with the most safety features, this does not mean that the other models are lacking. In fact, every model of the 2020 Kia Telluride comes with plenty of features to give you a safe and secure driving experience.
