2020 Hyundai Palisade

   

Overview

   

There is lots of anticipation over the 2020 Hyundai Palisade, which goes on sale this summer to replace - and improve upon - the outgoing Santa Fe XL. That anticipation is certainly well deserved, with all of the technological advancements this full-sized SUV is bringing with it, especially in its active safety equipment. The eight-passenger (or seven-passenger, if buyers opt for second-row captain's chairs instead of a bench seat) people mover will give its segment rivals a run for their money, offering a cavernous cabin and loads of features across an affordable pricing range.

   
   

Just as the weather heats up, so will the competition against the likes of the Toyota Highlander, the Subaru Ascent, the VW Atlas, the Honda Pilot, and the Nissan Pathfinder, as well as the closely related Kia Telluride, which has an earlier timeline for its release. The nitty-gritty details aren't public knowledge yet, but most trims of the Palisade should start out, before any a la carte options or packages are added, under $40,000, with the base trim expected to be closer to $30,000. This SUV will be larger than the Santa Fe XL that it's pushing out of the lineup, and its powertrain will be a 3.8-liter 291 horsepower V6 mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive will be available.

Connectivity Features

There's no question that the '20 Palisade is a modern vehicle; when you sit in the driver's seat you'll be surrounded by state-of-the-art features in all directions. The first thing you'll notice is the fully digital instrument cluster, a very nicely designed and modern arrangement of gauges showing everything you want to know about the vehicle as you're driving it. By all accounts, the infotainment system is easy to use and comes with great features in the base trim while adding more as trim levels rise.

Although other family-oriented vehicles in this class offer intercom systems for easy and efficient communication to all three rows, this Hyundai system features a sleep mode that can be activated so that sleeping passengers aren't disturbed. There will be plenty of USB ports for everyone, although they won't outnumber the sixteen cup holders that up to eight passengers get to share. Other available - and possibly standard - features in this vehicle should include ventilated seats, wireless charging, tri-zone climate control, a heated steering wheel, and a sliding moonroof.


Safety Features

People shopping for a vehicle to transport their most precious cargo - their family - always have safety equipment high on their list of must-haves. Hyundai gets ahead of most of its competition by including an attention-getting range of crash-mitigating features in the 2020 Palisade. Among the standard active safety features will be forward collision-avoidance assist and smart cruise control with stop-and-go. Some of the in-demand available crash-mitigating features will be a blind spot monitor with collision-avoidance assist, ultrasonic rear-occupant alert, a surround view monitor, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, and Hyundai's Safe Exit Assist, which prevents doors on the traffic side from opening when a vehicle is approaching.
