Kia Telluride is ready for winterBlog Sep 23rd, 2020
Canadians are a pragmatic bunch. The majority of us want one vehicle that can do it all. And by do it all, we mean take the entire family to all our favorite activities, to visit family and friends and, most importantly, in complete safety.
The new Kia Telluride is not only one of the hottest SUVs money can buy today but it’s also one of the best-equipped and safest in the three-row midsize SUV segment in Canada. Now, safety is a broad word in this setting. It involves everything from the full suite of standard passive and active safety features, to being able to tackle our country’s harsh winter driving conditions with complete confidence.
Every new Kia Telluride is delivered with all-wheel-drive as standard for improved traction in all situations. Kia’s AWD system is perfectly at home in our climate where conditions can vary wildly from season to season, and from one day to another. The system automatically monitors road conditions and sends power to the appropriate wheels to keep momentum going. These transitions occur in fractions of a second, and seamlessly. And most importantly, compared to some other automakers, the Active On-Demand AWD system requires no input whatsoever from the driver.
And when the going gets especially difficult, the driver can manually activate AWD Lock or Snow Mode for optimal traction. AWD Lock distributes the V6’s power evenly to all four wheels which is a near guarantee that the Telluride will never get stuck. With a decent set of winter tires, wintery driving conditions will never stop you from getting to where you want to go.
Being ready for winter also involves being comfortable during the cold season. This is why the Kia Telluride is fitted, as standard, with synthetic leather seats that are heated in the front, a heated steering wheel and tri-zone automatic climate control. Moving up the trim ladder will include real leather seats which are heated in the second row.
The Kia Telluride is a rare vehicle that is not only affordable but that is capable of handling all conceivable family and driving situations, no matter the conditions, including our Canadian winters.
