2022 Kia Telluride Interior

 The cabin of the 2022 Kia Telluride is excellent. Even in lower trim levels, the materials are of high quality, and everything fits and finishes well. Furthermore, the overall design is sleek and modern.

Regardless of how people feel about the Telluride's daring exterior, its interior is undeniably upscale and comfortable. The build quality is excellent, the materials are appealing, and there are numerous desirable features. The SX trim is the most luxurious, with features such as driver seat memory settings, a head-up display, heated and ventilated rear seats, a premium headliner, and nappa leather upholstery. Because the Telluride is several inches longer than the seven-passenger Kia Sorento, the cabin is even more spacious, particularly in the back seat.

There is seating for eight people with a second-row bench seat or seven people with the optional captain's chairs. In addition to ample interior storage throughout the cabin, we were able to fit four carry-on suitcases behind the third row and a total of 35 carry-ons with both back rows folded flat.

2022 Kia Telluride Cargo Space

The Telluride has a lot of cargo space for a midsize SUV. Behind the third-row seats, you get 21 cubic feet of space, which is excellent for the class. Fold those down, and you're left with 46 cubic feet, which is about average for the segment.

With all of the rear seats folded down, the Telluride has 87 cubic feet of cargo space, which is above average, though the most spacious class rivals have around 100 cubic feet.

How Many People Does the Telluride Seat?

Depending on whether you pair the three-person third row with a second-row bench seat or second-row captain's chairs, the Kia Telluride seats seven or eight people. On long trips, the front seats keep you comfortable and supported, and the driver has a commanding view outward.

The second row is also comfortable, and the third row is large enough for tall passengers. If you can afford to lose a seat, we recommend upgrading to captain's chairs, which are more comfortable than bench seats.

2022 Kia Telluride and Child Car Seats

The Telluride comes with three complete sets of LATCH connectors, two for the second-row outboard seats and one for the third-row driver's side seat. Both rear rows have a tether anchor in the middle seat.

For its ease of use, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this LATCH system the second-highest rating of Acceptable. All of the tether anchors are easily accessible, but the lower anchors are hidden deep within the seats, making it difficult to manoeuvre your hands around the third-row lower anchors.
