Three-row SUVs have become a hot commodity when it comes to Utah customers, including the new 2021 Kia Telluride and the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas. The 2021 Atlas and 2021 Telluride are two of the most popular large family SUVs, offering plenty of space for families and all of their gear. Telluride’s all-wheel drive system features a center locking differential that can lock the power split 50:50, which is a neat trick and one the Atlas, along with the rest of the competition, simply can’t touch. What would happen if we put these pioneers of the SUV class in a side-by-side comparison? Sparks were definitely flying as these popular SUV models faced off in a no-holds-barred grudge match.

While both the 2021 Kia Tellrudie and the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas are alike in a variety of ways, Telluride easily comes out on top when it comes the features our Utah customers are looking for in their next SUV. Both of these SUVs are tech-savvy and spacious, but Telluride starts to pull ahead with its off-road amenities and all-around capability. With their ability to seat more passengers and next-level innovations, we think the 2021 Telluride comes out on top when compared with the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas.
