The 2020 Kia Telluride has been named the 2020 New England Motor Press Association Winter SUV of the Year. NEMPA selects the best vehicles for winter driving and offers a combination of winter-specific features and options. These features and options make for a safe, enjoyable, and competent all-weather driving.

Recipients of this award meet, and often exceed, the wants, needs, and desires of the New England motorist. Judging and evaluation was conducted by NEMPA’s media members who subjected the Telluride to many grueling miles on every road surface and in every weather condition the region could throw at it.

“The Kia Telluride was the hands-down winner with a majority of NEMPA members,” said NEMPA president John Paul. Members were impressed with the overall quality of the Telluride’s materials, ride functionality, quiet cabin and its ability to handle New Englands historically brutal winters. “The Telluride doesn’t just answer the cost quality equation, it knocks it out of the park with good looks, ride quality, functionality, and impressive safety technology all at a great price.”

“It’s high praise when New England auto journalists judge a vehicle worthy of the title best Winter SUV,” said Sean Yoon, President & CEO, Kia Motors America, Kia Motors North America. “Their region’s weather is famously rigorous and we’re thrilled Telluride is more than up for the task.”

Telluride has garnered more than 60 awards from media outlets around the country since its introduction. Demand continues to outpace supply and more than 60,000 Tellurides have been sold since going on sale early last year.
