Which Midsize SUV Comes Out On Top?

In this head to head, we’ll take a look at a relative newcomer to the popular midsize SUV segment, the Kia Telluride, and one of the category’s oldest names, the Honda Pilot. If you’re looking at buying a new family-friendly SUV, the chances are good that you’ve looked at one or both of these models, since they’re currently among the best choices in the category.

The Kia Telluride was new for 2020, and was named the winner of our 2020 Best 3-Row SUV for Families award and a finalist for our 2020 Best 3-Row SUV for the Money award. Compared to the shiny new Telluride, the Honda Pilot may slip under the radar, but it gets a few updates for 2021 that improve comfort and drivability.
