Kia Telluride vs. Honda Pilot: Compare 3-row midsize crossovers near Greenville, SC

Despite being one of the segment's most recent additions, the Kia Telluride has already established itself as the standard-setter among midsize SUVs and a perfect fit for the various needs of families from Simpsonville to Forest City, NC. And while there are plenty of options in the class to choose from, the Tellurides blend of well-rounded versatility, spacious comfort, features, and value, is nearly unbeatable. Here's a quick look at how it compares to one of its most prominent competitors, the Honda Pilot.

New Kia Telluride near Greer


  • The Telluride and Pilot both provide large, well-crafted interiors with high-quality materials and comfortable seats. However, the Telluride delivers a notably more premium experience even in its most basic arrangement, with attractive modern styling and simulated leather upholstery. Rear passengers will also appreciate Telluride's standard rear HVAC controls. On the other hand, Pilot comes standard with cloth seats, and its design grows increasingly dated by the year.

  • Both models provide standard seating for eight and available 7-passenger seating with second-row captain's chairs. Front seating for each SUV is comparably spacious, but the Telluride offers much more legroom second-row legroom (42.4in - 38.4in) and a roomier third row suitable for adult-sized riders.

Tech & Power

  • Even with the Telluride's base trim level, Greer drivers can enjoy the convenience and connectivity of an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. EX models add a 10.25-inch display with navigation. The Pilot comes standard with a 5-inch screen, while advanced infotainment requires climbing the price ladder.

  • Both models equip responsive V-6 powerplants under the hood. But with 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, Telluride slightly outmuscles the Pilot (280 horsepower, 262 pound-feet of torque) without a fuel economy penalty. Telluride is also more enjoyable to drive, with precise steering and impressive handling for its size.
