Should I Buy the 2022 Kia Telluride?
The 2022 Telluride remains a great value thanks to its lineup of comfort and safety features. Interior quality and roominess are highlights, too. We weren’t that impressed with the Telluride’s audio systems, however, and thought the standard lane-keeping system was too aggressive. Still, the Telluride is definitely worth considering if you’re shopping for a three-row SUV.
