The Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) recently named the all-new 2020 Kia Telluride “CUV of Texas” as well as the “Mid-Size CUV” category winner at the association’s recent Auto Roundup event.
Forty-four journalist members of the TAWA who attended the Auto Roundup event evaluated 29 vehicles across a wide variety of criteria. They drove each vehicle on predetermined street and track courses and were encouraged to drive as they would during their own daily driving commutes. After two days of driving and evaluations, the final results were calculated.
“The Telluride was designed in California, assembled in Georgia, and has now been honored in Texas with two awards from this distinguished group of journalists,” said Michael Cole, COO and executive vice president, Kia Motors America. “TAWA members know automotive, especially utility vehicles, and Telluride being crowned not only the ‘CUV of Texas’ but also ‘Mid-Sized CUV’, is further proof of Kia’s ‘Give It Everything’ credo. It’s true what they say: Everything, even Telluride, is bigger in Texas.”
