  • Recently, I reviewed the Kia Telluride and found it to be wonderfully spacious and high quality for the price.
  • My fully loaded loaner was less than $50,000, yet it had an interior that rivaled cars priced at thousands of dollars more.
  • The leathers were soft and the interior design was classy and understated.

The Kia Telluride is Kia's three-row, midsize SUV. It's eye-catching from the outside, but by far, its most notable feature is how upscale it feels inside.

The Telluride's interior is awash in soft leathers, simulated matte-finish wood trim and brushed metal, and there's a ton of room to spread out and be comfortable. Business Insider reviewed the Telluride recently — which you can read about here! — and found it to be great for buyers who want a luxurious three-row SUV without the luxury price tag. 

Nicknamed the Kia "Sell-u-ride," the Telluride's popularity is undeniable. I'm willing to bet this interior combined with its very reasonable price tag (starting MSRP of $31,990) is what buyers have fallen in love with.

Read on to see the Telluride's upscale interior.

Even if it is "simulated" brushed metal and matte-finished wood, the trim still looks nice.

With the dark interior, the wood looks especially nice.

There's very little piano-black trim — the shiny stuff — on the center console, and the cupholders are nice and big. Piano-black trim is notorious for getting grimy with fingerprints.

All in all, there's a lot of room to put your loose items while driving.

My loaner came with Nappa leather seat trim. It was very soft and included in a $2,000 package.

The second row can either come as a bench seat or with captain's chairs.

The captain's chairs are great: plenty of legroom and shoulder room.

Even the third row is roomy. It has three seats instead of two, unlike many three-row SUVs.

There's plenty of headroom and if you're in the middle, you can stretch your legs out into the aisle.

Even with the third row upright, the trunk is quite spacious.

As does the second row. You can almost sleep in there!
