Boxy KIA Telluride Concept Looks Surprisingly Good In Detroit

KIA revealed the Telluride Concept in Detroit, a design study that reveals the company’s interest in entering the large SUV segment.

The boxy shape of the Telluride shows that KIA wants to be more flexible with their design language while the fact that the concept is based upon a stretched Sorento chassis is proof of their will to throw it into production.

As a concept, the seven-seater gets a lot of impressive features such as the suicide rear doors and a limo-like configuration for the second row’s passengers but also some border-line ridiculous, like the embedded health sensors on the seats which detect your jet lag and then command the Light Emitted Rejuvenation (LER) system on the ceiling to display a therapeutic light pattern to improve your energy level.

KIA also says that the Telluride is powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain, consisting of a 270hp 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine and a 130hp electric motor for a combined 400hp which allows the big SUV concept to return 30mpg on the highway.

Whether the Telluride reaches production or not depends on the public’s reaction to it, and so far the results look really promising.
