The new Kia logo also makes its way in as it has for all newer models from the Koreans the world over.

The bulk of the other updates on the new Telluride is inside the cabin where a larger 10.25-inch navigation display finds its place on the dash. Features such as fully automatic temperature control and highway driving assist have now made way to lower trims like LX and S, while Navigation Based Smart Cruise Control-Curve is available on all trims.

On expected lines, making more features standard across trims and bringing additional features to lower trims does come with a higher price tag. In the US, the base Telluride LX has seen a hike of $600 and now starts at $32,790 (approximately 24 lakh). The top-of-the-line SX-P is priced at $46,890 (approximately 34.50 lakh).

There is no change under the hood and the Telluride continues to have a 3.8-litre V6 engine that produces 291 hp and has 355 Nm of torque on offer. There is also the option to choose All-Wheel-Drive (AWD). It stands on 20-inch wheels.

Telluride, last year, had won the 2020 Car of the Year title and beat the likes of Mazda3 and Mazda CX-30. Kia Telluride has also won awards like North American Car of the Year and was a 'Top Pick' in the Consumer Reports.
