The 2020 Palisade is a new three-row crossover-SUV entry from Hyundai. The Palisade essentially replaces the three-row option for the smaller and less accommodating Santa Fe XL, adding a larger, more family-friendly model to compete in the larger midsized three-row segment.
The 2020 Hyundai Palisade features three roomy rows of seating, plentiful standard safety and technology features along with several options for even more, and a well-matched V6 powerplant to get it all around.
The Palisade is often compared to its cousin, the Kia Telluride, which shares several things with the Palisade. The Kia is a different option, though, with the Hyundai having a more luxurious bent towards its upscale nature. Where the Palisade really shines, though, is in its three rows of adult-usable seating. Unlike many in this segment, the third row is not cramped and only for kids or, worse, billed as being for adults without the kind of comfort to keep adults in the back from feeling cheated.
The advanced safety features and huge warranty that comes with the 2020 Palisade are more features that will definitely get buyers’ interest. The Palisade comes in three trim levels with one engine and transmission option. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. Total passenger capacity is seven or eight, depending on the second-row configuration.
