2022 Kia Telluride Interior Features

Trim Levels: Choose Your Own Adventure

The level of luxury your 2022 Kia Telluride delivers largely depends on the trim level you choose. The new Telluride offers four trim levels called the LX, S, EX, and SX. You can upgrade the latter two trim levels with the EX Premium and SX Prestige packages for even more exciting interior features. Though the entry-level LX is equipped with an impressive number of creature comforts—such as high-quality speakers, quiet mode, and dual front car holders—the Telluride experience only improves as you progress through the trim levels.

Cabin Space

The Telluride’s midsize SUV body provides up to eight passengers, meaning you’ll have plenty of room for relaxation during a drive. You can opt for captain’s chairs in the second row that will decrease your passenger capacity to seven, but provide a first-class experience for your passengers.

The trim levels have different levels of headroom depending on whether there’s a sunroof. The LX does not come standard with a sunroof, while the S and EX both sport a single-pane sunroof. The SX boasts dual sunroofs that let even more light into the cabin.

  • Total passenger volume: 178.1 cubic feet.
  • Cargo volume behind first/second/third row: 87/46/21 cubic feet.
  • Headroom (inches)
    • Front row: 40.9 for LX and 39.5 for S, EX, and SX.
    • Second row: 40.2 for LX, S, and EX. 38.8 for SX.

The Telluride’s reconfigurable seating allows you to strike the perfect balance between passenger and cargo volume. All models come standard with one-touch sliding and folding second-row seats to allow for easier access to the third row. The rear cargo area also has an adjustable cargo floor that you can drop down to fit taller cargo items, like luggage or moving boxes.

2022 Telluride: Cargo space

Finally, the Telluride has a very spacious cargo area. It’s surprising that an SUV can provide this much cargo space behind three rows of seats fitting seven or eight passengers inside. Each Telluride has 21 cubic feet of space behind the third row, 46 cubic feet behind the second, and with both rear rows folded flat, 87 cubic feet of cargo space.

According to KBB, selecting the second-row captain’s chairs unlocks a little more customizability. Those who use the third row regularly will find access to each row easier with the captain’s chairs instead of the second-row bench.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Regardless of people’s opinion about the Telluride’s bold outward appearance, its interior is undeniably upscale and comfortable. The build quality is excellent, the materials are attractive, and the desirable features are plentiful. The SX trim tops them all with the fanciest options, which include driver’s seat memory settings, a head-up display, heated and ventilated rear seats, a premium headliner, and nappa leather upholstery. Because the Telluride is several inches longer than the seven-passenger Kia Sorento, its cabin is even more spacious, especially for those in the wayback seat. There is room for eight with a second-row bench seat or room for seven with the optional captain’s chairs. Along with ample interior storage throughout the cabin, we managed to fit four carry-on suitcases behind its third row and stuffed a total of 35 carry-ons with both back rows folded flat.
