Small overlap front: driver-side

Rating applies to 2020-22 models

Tested vehicle: 2020 Kia Telluride SX 4-door 4wd

The Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade were introduced in the 2020 model year. Driver-side small overlap frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test conducted by Hyundai/Kia as part of frontal crash test verification and apply to both vehicles.
