“We test over 300 vehicles every year, and it’s clear that the K5 and Telluride are category winners,” said Alistair Weaver, editor-in-chief at Edmunds. “The K5’s ride is as smooth as those from some luxury sedans, and it makes a striking first impression thanks to sharp design that’s far more compelling than some of its more pedestrian-looking competition. In terms of SUVs, the Telluride has truly changed our expectations for the segment, thanks to its combination of high-quality design, family-friendly functionality and impressive value.”
