Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Telluride than in the Toyota Venza. The Kia Telluride offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Venza, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Telluride as you will with the Toyota Venza, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Kia Telluride is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Venza. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Kia Telluride and the Toyota Venza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Telluride is much wider than the Toyota Venza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Kia Telluride, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota Venza.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Kia Telluride does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Venza.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Telluride greatly out-muscles the Toyota Venza.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Kia Telluride more than the Toyota Venza, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Kia Telluride, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Venza.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Telluride than that of the Toyota Venza.
