- Kia SUV selected number one from a field of 19 competitor vehicles
- Another prestigious trophy added to Telluride’s long list of awards
CHICAGO, February 6, 2020 — The Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA) awarded the Telluride its 2020 MAMA Family Vehicle of the Year. The Telluride beat out 19 contenders for the award, and in order to qualify, vehicles must be either new or significantly updated for that model year.
“The Midwest Automotive Media Association’s membership includes some of the most prominent and respected auto journalists in the country,” said MAMA president Damon Bell, “and they selected the Kia Telluride as the 2020 MAMA Family Vehicle of the Year over a formidable roster of contenders. The Telluride can add another prestigious trophy to the long list of awards it has earned this year.”
“The Chicago auto show has always had a special place in Kia’s corporate heart,” said Michael Cole, president, Kia Motors America. “And our respect for MAMA and its journalist members goes hand-in-hand with our affinity for the region. Kia is very proud of the Telluride and this award.”
Telluride has garnered more than 40 awards from media outlets around the country since its introduction. Demand continues to outpace supply and more than 60,000 Tellurides have been sold since going on sale early last year.
