2022 Kia Telluride
|21/26 MPG||Fuel Economy (City/Highway)|
Most midsize crossovers are similar in size, and our 2022 Nissan Pathfinder or the 2022 Kia Telluride comparison are no exception. The new Pathfinder has a 114.2-inch wheelbase and a total length of 197.0 inches, or roughly 16.4 feet. The Telluride has a similar 114.2-inch wheelbase but is shorter at 196.9 inches. The Pathfinder is slightly taller (70.9 vs. 68.9 inches) and marginally broader (78.3 vs. 77.9 inches) than the Telluride. Kia has chosen a minimum ground clearance of 8.0 inches. For better handling, Nissan chose a 7.1-inch wheel. Alloy wheels are standard on both versions, and wheel design and finish options range from 18 to 20 inches.
Both vehicles have seating for seven and eight passengers, as well as a similar total passenger capacity. However, Nissan has assured that the Pathfinder can accommodate taller drivers thanks to 41.1 inches of headroom and 44.3 inches of legroom. Only 39.5 inches of headroom and 41.4 inches of legroom are available in the 2022 Kia Telluride. With 42.4 inches of legroom in the second seat, Kia offers one of the roomier second rows in the class. However, with 35.5 inches, the Pathfinder can still accommodate adults.
Kia also has a little more legroom in the third row: 31.4 vs. 28.0. Kia has 21.0 cu.-ft. of cargo space, whereas Nissan has 16.6 cu.-ft. While this may appear to be a gain for Kia, the Pathfinder also features underfloor storage compartments in the seating and load areas, which increase functional capacity.
