Three automotive brands comprise Hyundai Motor Group (HMG): Genesis, Hyundai, and Kia. Vehicles sold under each brand share platforms, powertrains, and technologies but are styled, packaged, and dynamically tuned to serve different customers. For example, HMG's mid-size three-row SUVs are the 2021 Hyundai Palisade and 2021 Kia Telluride. They're essentially different flavors of the same thing but crafted in different ways for different customers.
The 2021 Palisade is available in SE, SEL, Limited, and Calligraphy trim levels. The Palisade Calligraphy is new this year, a luxury-oriented version with more expressive design details. The 2021 Telluride comes in LX, S, EX, and SX trim. A Nightfall Edition Package adds a trendy blacked-out appearance to the EX and SX trims, while an SX Prestige Package brings the Telluride up to a level of specification similar to the Palisade Calligraphy. You want to know if one of these SUVs is better than the other. The answer, especially when comparing these two models, depends on your preferences and priorities. Keep reading to learn the details.
