The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.5
6.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Kia Telluride still tops our family-SUV shopping list with its handsome looks, great space, plentiful features, and long warranty. The 2022 VW Atlas competes as a thoroughly competent family wagon, but doesn’t stand out in any particular way.
