Up against 67 other vehicles, the KIA Telluride decimated the competition on it’s way to Car and Driver’s 10 Best list for the third consecutive year. The team of expert judges chosen by Car and Driver was basing its judgment on a few criteria, including value, mission fulfillment, and even road manners. The field of 67 vehicles was made up of all-new or significantly updated vehicles with a base price below $90,000, as well as the previous year’s winners. As expected, the KIA Telluride rose to the top of the list quite quickly as it’s one of the best values available on the market today.
