The all-new 2020 Palisade

The Palisade’s exterior and interior design clearly reflect its unique flagship identity with a bold, distinctive road presence, winning the “Product Design – Cars and Motorcycles” category at the prestigious Red Dot international design competition last year.

From the front, a dominant, bold and wide cascading grille clearly represents a premium SUV.

Separated composite headlamps and a vertically connected forward-lighting signature create a strong and distinctive demeanour, with LED headlights, daytime running lights and turn-signal mirrors.

Powerful performance

The view from the rear – characterised by an elegant vertical LED rear lights set-up – emphasises the Palisade’s wide, stable posture, while available 20-inch alloy wheels further add to its commanding road presence.

The interior combines relaxation and comfort, creating a serene environ-ment, with seven-passenger seating perfect for family adventures.

Leather seats and smooth wood-grain trim add to the air of luxury, while the spacious wraparound interior design ensures passengers travel in comfort.

The Palisade features a 3.5-litre petrol engine, with all that power delivered to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission with HTRAC and Multi-Terrain mode.

Hyundai’s all-wheel-drive and drive modes system optimises traction on difficult road surfaces, whether muddy, sandy, bumpy or wet.

The Palisade offers a huge number of advanced safety and convenience technologies that are demanded in a premium SUV.

The centre information display is a generous 10.25-inch touchscreen in widescreen format, coupled with a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster offering various view modes and differentiated drive mode illumination.

The shift-by-wire system includes automatic parking logic that shifts the vehicle into park when the engine is turned off and the driver opens the door.

Taking inspiration from aircraft technology, the Palisade’s available heads-up display (HUD) projects a virtual image onto the windscreen, helping the driver to better focus on the road.

The Palisade also offers the class-exclusive Blind View Monitor that complements the standard Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, which provides easy-to-see body-side views whenever the indicators are used.

To enhance passenger safety, the premium SUV is equipped with Safe Exit Assist and Rear Occupant Alert.

No epic road trip would be complete without the panoramic sunroof with one-button opening, while the available QI wireless charging pad, compatible with Android as well as recent Apple iPhones, eliminates the need for chargers.
