2020 Kia Telluride Safety
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

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.
