Kia Telluride size compared to Sorento
The next biggest SUV in Kia’s range is the Sorento. The Sorento is a midsize SUV which is considerably smaller than the Telluride. This means that for customers who find the Telluride’s size a little too big for their particular needs, the Sorento offers a great alternative.
Inspite of the smaller size, the Sorento offers seating for (up to) seven passengers, and offers plenty of useable room inside the cabin. The third row seats are smaller than the ones in the Telluride, making it more suitable for smaller kids, though.
We’ve listed the most important vehicle dimensions in the comparison table below, which you can check out to see exactly what the size differences are between the Kia Telluride and the Kia Sorento.

Exterior size compared to rivals
In the midsize three-row crossover SUV segment, the new Telluride is standing strong among its American-built rivals, including the Chevrolet Traverse, the Volkswagen Atlas, the Honda Pilot and the sixth-generation Ford Explorer.
Take, for instance, the sixth generation Ford Explorer. According to the Kelly Blue Book, the third row of the Explorer “is tiny and almost unusable by adults”. It’s also only available in a six or seven-seat configuration, making the Kia Telluride a more appealing choice for larger families due to the 8-seater configuration option available on the higher trim levels.
The 2022 Kia Telluride also has a competitive edge over the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas when it comes to the seating capacity; the Atlas can only fit up to seven passengers, whereas the Telluride can fit up to eight.
It’s not all about passenger room though – cargo room is also important, and that’s where the Kia Telluride has an advantage over the Honda Pilot, which only offers offers 16 cubic feet of cargo room.
