When looking at each vehicle, it's important to consider fuel efficiency. After all, you’re bound to be behind the wheel a lot, and it's good to have a model that takes you far.

Efficient Performances

Looking at the 2022 Pilot, it achieves an EPA-estimated 20 city/27 highway MPG on its 2-wheel drive trims. ¹The Telluride slides in just under those figures, with a 20 city/26 highway MPG.

For further consideration, the Pilot does this with a 9-speed automatic transmission, offering more gear ratios that result in a more versatile performance. The Telluride has only an 8-speed automatic transmission.

When you tackle the roads, you’ll want to be confident that you have what you need. A large amount of cargo space is a key feature that’s often overlooked—luckily, both models deliver.

Roomy Cargo Space

The Pilot clocks in with up to 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row and up to 55.9 cubic feet behind the second row. For the most space, fold down all the back rows and open the space up to a whopping 109 cubic feet of max cargo.

Meanwhile, the Telluride only comes with 87 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first row. While convenient, it lacks the ability to expand that space as the Pilot has. This puts a hard limit on what you can either bring to work or out on the road for recreation.

Having all that space available means you aren’t limited to taking only the essentials—you can have it all in the Pilot.

It’s important to know how each vehicle will make your driving experience feel. A great way to do this is with a look at some connectivity and interfacing features inside both models.

Connectivity on the Go

Both the Pilot and Telluride come outfitted with touchscreen multimedia systems—your hub for entertainment, connectivity, and information right on your dashboard. Each boasts similar features, like:

  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto®
  • Bluetooth™

However, there are some connectivity features you’ll find in the 2022 Honda Pilot that you won’t in its Kia competitor. This includes the SMS Text Message Function, a handy feature that makes texting on the go safe and convenient.

Another great feature is Wi-Fi® capability, also available on the Pilot. This is able to give you and your passengers access to a hotspot in your vehicle, perfect for connecting on those long trips. This type of feature does not make an appearance on the basic Telluride model.
