Ever-toughening vehicle-safety expectations mean that late-model vehicles tend to be more homogeneous from a styling standpoint than vintage cars and trucks–even those from just a few decades ago. Still, automakers can shock us. The new-for-2020 Kia Telluride, for example, stands out as both attractive and distinct looking.
