Hyundai Palisade – Launched in December 2020 Hyundai Palisade adds to the already extensive SUV range offered by Hyundai, but with a difference.
It’s BIG yet well-proportioned with dynamics and quietness that belies its size.
Palisade comes with two engine options, a 3.8L V6 petrol and a 2.2L diesel, two drivetrains, FWD and AWD, seven and eight seat configurations one transmission, an eight speed AT and two specification levels, the Palisade and Highlander.
Inside it looks and feels spacious and luxurious, with even the entry level Palisade being well equipped.

Key features are wireless phone charging, smart phone connectivity, a 10.25 inch centre screen, 12 speaker Infinity premium sound system, air conditioning and airbags for all three rows of seats and a practical seat and luggage arrangement.
Pricing is from $60,000 for the entry level Palisade petrol through to $75,000 for the 2.2L Highlander, plus the usual costs. The sweet spot is probably the diesel AWD Palisade, but I must admit to liking all the bling that comes with the Highlander.
