The Kia Telluride Concept


Unveiled in 2016, the Kia Telluride previews a cutting-edge vision for a full-size SUV. A striking three-row, seven-passenger, luxury SUV concept, it features a modern and upright shape, muscular stance, and – for maximum comfort – a longer wheelbase than many other production Kia models. 

The car made an aesthetic statement as a bold, all-new luxury SUV with an abundance of advanced technologies. 

The concept focuses on the passenger experience and comfort of second-row occupants, whose seats can recline nearly flat with large fold-away footrests. Front- and middle-row passenger seats feature a series of precise diamond-cut openings in the seatbacks, each embedded with Smart Sensors to capture a passenger’s vital health information. Passenger vitals are then displayed on interior door panel screens, and synchronize with a Light Emitted Rejuvenation (LER) system. The LER system utilizes a large LED panel in the ceiling which displays therapeutic light patterns to treat desynchronosis, more commonly known as jetlag, and improve passengers’ energy levels.
