The Hyundai Palisade is an excellent midsize SUV that does well in various areas, from performance to interior. It does just about everything well and has some characteristics and features that are outstanding. If you need a vehicle that seats seven or eight people, then the new Palisade gives you great value for money in this class. On this page, you can learn more about the 2021 Palisade and what makes it such an attractive buy.
The most notable aspect of the interior of the Palisade is just how roomy it is. All three rows have enough room for adults, and there’s cargo space in the trunk as well. The materials are high-end and comfortable, too, so that elevates the feel of the SUV. It’s a great interior for families. You can set the second row to be configured with a bench that seats three or two captain’s chairs. The different trim levels also provide a variety of interior upgrades, so you can make changes by moving up trims. It’s a beautiful design that works well with the feature set for Delta, CO drivers.
The Palisade has an eye-catching, sporty look with a swept-back windshield over a prominent grille and nose. The look emphasizes the engine, which is a good thing for an SUV with a powerful drivetrain. Despite how large the interior is, the exterior doesn’t appear boxy or bulky. It’s a welcome sight for an SUV because recent SUV designs have tended to be practical and dull. The slope down to the rear is less extreme than the front, allowing for maximum cargo space as well as low wind resistance. This is a vehicle that takes itself seriously.
The list of tech features on the Palisade is just as robust as the safety features. It has full smartphone connectivity through Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Bluetooth, and it also has five USB ports that you can use for charging and data transfer. There is a touchscreen eight inches across that controls all of the infotainment, and you can upgrade that to over ten inches in size in higher trims. Upper trim levels also add things like push-button start, power seating, and more climate zones for comfort.
The Palisade has just one engine, but it’s a very good one. It is a V6 that gets 291 horsepower. It feels great on the highway or inclined roads when you need some power, and the acceleration is speedy. The SUV has strong handling, and it’s much more nimble than you would expect at this size.
The Palisade has five stars on its National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash tests. In terms of its safety features, it has quite a few standard ones and some available upgrades. The standard choices include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and even adaptive cruise control, usually locked away in an expensive package or trim. In terms of the available and optional features, they are mostly related to automated parking and adding more sensors. The most important and valuable features are all standard.
