When it comes to SUVs, there are more than a fair share of choices. Honestly, the sheer number of different choices is a bit intimidating. One site you go to will tell you to get this vehicle for reason A, while another site will tell you to get that other vehicle for reason B, and so on. It can be confusing. And the prospect of spending $30,000-$40,000 on the wrong vehicle is just plain awful.
We scoured the web for you to find some of the best-rated SUVs on the market. Today we’ll look at the 2020 Toyota Highlander XLE and the 2020 Kia Telluride EX and see which comes out on top.
The 2020 Highlander has the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS) suite of safety features that are standard on every Highlander model, no matter the trim. That means you get a pre-collision system with low-light pedestrian detection, full-speed radar dynamic cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assist, lane tracing assist, automatic high beams, and road sign assist on any Highlander you purchase. Also available are blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and front/rear parking assist with automated braking. The 2020 Highlander also features the innovative dynamic torque vectoring AWD system that improves responsiveness, stability, and fuel economy by automatically sending or cutting power to individual wheels as needed.
