2023 Kia Telluride facelift: what's new?
Kia has introduced a whole host of styling updates to the Telluride facelift since its debut back in 2018. At the front, the three-row SUV gets updated headlights which now have LED DRLs as standard. Along with LED fog lamps, the Telluride now features a revised bumper and a front grille with black mesh, for a sportier look.
The side profile of the SUV remains similar, apart from the revised side sills and door garnishes. Other key changes to the Telluride facelift include the updated rear bumper, new tail-light inserts with vertically-positioned LEDs, new alloy wheel designs and exterior colours.
Kia has also introduced the X-Line and X-Pro variants for the Telluride facelift, which come with exclusive exterior updates that include a redesigned radiator grille, roof rails, 20-inch alloy wheels, and a 10mm increase in ride height. The X-Pro variant gets the same features as the X-Line, apart from featuring 18-inch wheels.
