2020 Highlander vs 2020 Telluride

2020 Toyota Highlander vs 2020 Kia Telluride

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.
