Hyundai Palisade Is a Three-Row Flagship with Luxury Looks

Hyundai Palisade Is a Three-Row Flagship with Luxury Looks”

Hyundai claims a 0.33 coefficient of drag for the Palisade, thanks to its raked A-pillar angle, "rear spoiler side garnish", an extended internal air guide for the "optimised" front cooling area, aero underbody panels, and aero deflectors on the rear wheels. The central screen is a 10.25-inch unit and the instrument cluster features a 12.3-inch digital display with various, configurable modes. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionalities are standard across the board, though the larger display gets Global Positioning System navigation with traffic flow updates. And buyers can choose between front- or all-wheel-drive. Seats are finished in premium quilted Nappa leather.

Inside, the second-row seats can be moved forward with the touch of a button for easier third-row access, while the rearmost pews are power-folding and can even be reclined.

As a self-respecting American crossover should, the Palisade boasts 16 cupholders, two for each passenger, as well as seven USB ports.

Huyndai offers a sophisticated Driver Talk in-car intercom system with rear seat conversation and sleep modes for the vehicle. Second-row captain's chairs are also available with ventilated seating surfaces. "Customers can feel serenity and comfort in the Palisades". The former works in real-time to rebuild audio details lost in digitally-compressed music, while QuantumLogic extracts signals from the original recording and redistributes them into a multidimensional soundstage for playback that is clear, refined and full of detail. This new diffuser vent design provides quieter rear air conditioning airflow, draft-free operation, more uniform distribution of air and the capability for a focused stream of air whenever desired. Owners can opt for a built-in Qi wireless charging pad that's compatible with many Android devices and the most recent iPhones.

The four-cylinder engine is carried over from the old range but its outputs of 142kW and 440Nm are now more efficiently delivered with the addition of two extra gears. The overall look, though, is noticeably more premium than the lesser Hyundais; indicative of the Palisade's namesake.

The most interesting thing here is that even though the Palisade (4980 mm) is shorter nearly all three-row midsize SUVs, cargo space exceeds those of the Explorer and Highlander, with 1296 litres of available room behind the second row of seats.

Only one powertrain is available: a 3.8-liter V6 engine capable of 291hp and 355Nm of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The HTRAC system can be configured via several different drive modes, each one tweaking the behavior and location of the torque from the V-6.
