The Hyundai Palisade 2020 is named not after a fence, as one might think, but after a group of peaks in the Californian Sierra Nevada mountains.
Do you need an eight-seater car or not? Someone thinks so many seats without a trunk is a waste of space. Someone thinks that there are situations when it is better to get by with one car than two.
It is all about the Hyundai Palisade 2020, a mid-size three-row crossover with a powerful engine, four-wheel drive, a spacious third row, and quite a large trunk.
The branded cascade grille is surrounded by a bold silver line, as if hinting at high status. The same silvery line can be seen around the taillights. However, the main distinguishing feature of the Palisade is its large, vertical LED running lights. The headlights are not located where we expect them to be. The top row has the turn signals and the running light line, which is the hallmark of the Palisade.
The Palisade salon has high-quality materials, a large multimedia system screen, virtual instruments, metal-coated buttons.
The multimedia system pleases with fast responses, high-quality graphics, the 10.25-inch screen allows you to divide the screen into three zones so as not to switch between navigation and radio, for example.
There is enough space in the second row for tall people. This space can be shared with the passengers of the third row or the angle of the second-row seats can be changed to an almost reclining position.
Traditionally, for cars of this format, a second row with two captain’s seats is available. There are also optional mechanical blinds for the second-row windows. Climate control of the second row is located in the tunnel, as are the air vents.
Motion sensors will remind you of the presence of passengers in the second and third rows, so as not to forget the children in the cabin.
The volume of the luggage compartment is 510 liters, and as a bonus, there is an impressive underground, where you can spread out small things or hide something.
Seven airbags, blind spot monitoring, all-round cameras and other systems are responsible for safety.
The eight-speed “automatic” can automatically “park” if the door is open or the ignition is turned off. Front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. The ground clearance of 200 mm and the Multi Terrain Control selection washer allows you to feel relatively calm on light off-road terrain.
On the road the Hyundai Palisade behaves like an American, but does not sway to nausea, as was customary in the 90s, but is comfortable, smooth and without sharpness. At parking speeds, the steering wheel is too light and empty. However, as the speed increases, the electric booster adds gravity to the car, although reactive force is not added from this. As the speed increases, the lack of sound insulation appears. The Palisade 2020 perfectly keeps straight and “swallows” large irregularities.
