Hyundai Palisade Arrives Ready To Haul Your Whole Family

The Hyundai Palisade will be first launched in the U.S. market in the summer of 2019.

First, let's talk design. The imposing front fascia features an unmissable hexagonal chrome grille. LED illumination is optional out back.

Hyundai said the Palisade's exterior was styled to stand out and exude security to appeal to "parents with growing families and active lifestyles".

Measuring 196.1in (4981mm) long, 77.8in (1976mm) wide and 68.9in (1750mm) tall, the Palisade is longer and wider than the top-selling Toyota, while its 114.2in (2900mm) wheelbase is a match for the larger-than-class-average Nissan Pathfinder. Besides the Hyundai badge and model name spelled out, there's nothing much to distract the eyes. The imposing SUV features 3 rows, 8 seats and mammoth 20 inch tyres with 245/50 rubber.

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.

Twin digital displays, for the instrument cluster and infotainment system, dominate the dashboard. The shift-by-wire system also includes automatic park logic that shifts the vehicle into park when the engine is off and the driver opens the door. This layout also frees up the centre tunnel, allowing for convenient storage space underneath. Seats are finished in premium quilted Nappa leather. The second row includes one touch seating to make it easier for kids to operate and for better access to the third row. Seven-seat models get captain seats with heating and ventilation for the second row.

To sum that up, the Palisade is supposed to be a premium, Korean-made package of practicality, comfort, and performance. 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 innovative function provides quieter air conditioner operation and more uniform air distribution. To eliminate the need for a charging cord, there's an available Qi wireless charging pad for compatible Android devices as well as recent Apple iPhones. The efficiency of the engine is 295 horsepower and 355 Nm of torque. There are 16 cupholders on offer as well.

Inside, the big Palisade offers 18 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row of seats and 45.8 cubic feet behind the second row - figures that are average for the segment. When equipped with the latter system, the Aviator offers several drive modes so the driver can adjust to the road conditions... or to their mood in the moment. A newly-developed Snow Mode is available too.

HTRAC is a major highlight because if have AWD locking, can shuffle power side-to-side and even influences shifting according to available grip. Another handy feature is the Rear Occupant alert that uses sensors to detect if a kid or pet is in the auto. The safe exit assist uses the Palisade's radar to detect cars approaching from the rear and alerts passengers looking to exit the vehicle.

There's also the fact that it is created to LOOK big.
