2022 Kia Telluride: Edmunds Top Rated SUV | Edmunds Top Rated Awards 2022

The 2022 Kia Telluride is a midsize three-row SUV and the defending champion of the Edmunds Top Rated SUV award. Despite a number of new and exciting SUVs released this year, the Telluride once again proved it's the best SUV with its combination of comfort, technology, luxurious interior and value all rolled into one. The 2022 Kia Telluride continues to dominate the midsize SUV segment and is our choice as the Edmunds Top Rated SUV for 2022 -- making it a three-time winner of this award.

2022 Kia Telluride

The best SUV — three years in a row
December 15th, 2021

Now in its third year of production, the Kia Telluride leads the midsize SUV class thanks to its outstanding ride comfort, roomy cabin, upscale interior materials, and wealth of standard and available features. But while all of the above strengths contribute to making it a competitive vehicle, it's the value proposition that elevates the Telluride to be the Edmunds Top Rated SUV.

"The Kia Telluride provides an unbeatable combination of passenger comfort, helpful technology features and outstanding value."

Not all of the above traits are exhibited by other vehicles in this segment, but the Telluride offers them all while generally costing less than rival SUVs. That's even true for the top-spec SX model, which offers rare-for-the-class features such as customizable ambient lighting and ventilated second-row seats. Further driving home the value play is Kia's lengthy warranty. Paying less to get the best? It doesn't often happen, but it does with the Telluride.

Other highlights include third-row seating that is spacious enough for 6-foot-tall adults — an attribute shared by very few midsize crossovers — a roomy cargo area, and an infotainment system that has one of the most intuitive user interfaces on the market. For all these reasons and more, the Kia Telluride is the Edmunds Top Rated SUV for the third year in a row.
