Kia Telluride

Both the Kia Telluride and the Hyundai Palisade are known for their spacious interiors. Both midsize SUVs come with a third row, making them fit for the whole family. However, we want to take a deep dive to see which one will be more comfortable.

Comfort Comparison

Both models supply their occupants with a lot of comfortable space throughout their respective cabins. Below, we've compiled a few key measurements for each one. We'll start with the Kia Telluride.

  • Passenger volume: 178.1 cubic feet
  • First-row headroom: 40.9 inches
  • Second-row shoulder room: 61.2 inches
  • Third-row headroom: 38.1 inches

This snapshot of the space inside the Kia Telluride makes it clear that you and your passengers will remain comfortable.

Comfort in the Hyundai

Here are the dimensions for the same areas inside the 2023 Hyundai Palisade.

  • Passenger volume: 155.3 cubic feet
  • First-row headroom: 40.7 inches
  • Second-row shoulder room: 60.8 inches
  • Third-row headroom: 37.8 inches

The Palisade is no slouch in the comfort department. However, it doesn't offer the extra wiggle room you'll find in the Kia Telluride. The Kia SUV provides more room where it counts so everyone on board can stretch out.

There's far more versatility and possibility in a cabin beyond its passenger room. Thanks to easily folded rear seats, your ride can be a capable machine when it comes to transporting bulky gear.

Packing Your Gear and Equipment

You'll love having a spacious set of wheels when it comes time to pack bulky items for a move or a camping trip. As you might have guessed, the boost in passenger volume carries over to cargo capacity. The Kia Telluride lets you securely pack more of your must-have gear for your adventures.

In total, the Kia Telluride has up to 87 cubic feet of cargo volume, while the Hyundai Palisade maxes out at 86.4 cubic feet.

Different Cargo Configurations
Kia Telluride vs. Hyundai Palisade Cargo Capacities
  Kia Telluride Hyundai Palisade
Behind 1st row 21 cu. ft. 18 cu. ft.
Behind 2nd row 46 cu. ft. 45.8 cu. ft.
Behind 3rd row 87 cu. ft. 86.4 cu. ft.

In every possible configuration, the Kia Telluride provides more space for your gear. This is equally true for everything from shopping trips with a week's worth of groceries in the trunk to epic road trips with the family's luggage and lots of essentials along for the ride.

Kia Telluride

One of the most important things when it comes to convenient and simple use is having a large and easy-to-read touchscreen.

Standard Touchscreens

In their 2023 iterations, both the Kia Telluride and the Hyundai Palisade come with a standard 12.3-inch touchscreen that makes your apps, messages, and other info easy to read while you're out and about.

Today’s drivers need to stay connected while on the go. As such, both models also come with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, Bluetooth® wireless technology, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio.

Technology Features

An area where the Kia Telluride surpasses the Hyundai Palisade is in some of its built-in features. While both models include a standard Navigation system, only the Telluride includes a standard Driver Talk system.

The Driver Talk system allows you to amplify your voice through the speakers for riders in the second and third rows. This feature is only available with the purchase of a Premium Package in the Palisade.
