Riverside Hyundai Shoppers Get An Early Look At The Family Friendly 2020 Hyundai Palisade
The all-new 2020 Hyundai Palisade is a midsize three-row SUV that comes in configurations that seat seven or eight passengers. While it shares much with its sister vehicle, the Kia Telluride, when you see the Hyundai Palisade at a dealership like Riverside Hyundai, you’ll agree that the Palisade’s unique interior and exterior styling sets it apart from the Telluride.
Although the 2020 Hyundai Palisade is the automaker’s first midsize three-row SUV, it’s a formidable rival to competing vehicles. The Palisade features a pleasing cabin, exceptional handling, a long list of standard and available features, and a modest price tag. If you’re looking for a Hyundai in Riverside County, you owe it to yourself to place the 2020 Hyundai Palisade at the top of your shopping list.
Equipped for The Family
To enable the Palisade to compete against rival SUVs, Hyundai made it bigger than the Santa Fe XL, which it replaces. The Palisade is offered in three trim levels: SE, SEL and Limited. No matter which trim you choose, you’ll get a 3.8-liter V6 engine developing 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. All trims get standard front-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive. Buyers can choose the standard eight-passenger configuration with a second-row bench or the optional captain’s chair that reduces the total seating capacity to seven. Towing capacity maxes out at 5,000 pounds.
Automotive Press Praise
The Palisade receives accolades from the automotive press, with Autoweek writing: “For the midsize SUV shopper, there's quite honestly nothing I don't like about the 2020 Hyundai Palisade, especially when price is factored in. Yes, there's a tremendous amount of value here, but price shouldn't be the key selling point – the Palisade would be a top-tier competitor even at a higher MSRP.”
The SE trim may be the base model, but it still comes with plenty of features, including push-button start, one-touch sliding second-row seats, keyless access, automatic headlights, smart cruise control, an 8-inch infotainment screen, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Safety features that come standard include seven airbags, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and lane-keeping assist. Of course, the Palisade benefits from Hyundai’s 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
The 2020 Hyundai Palisade received the highest rating of Good in all IIHS crash tests, and the organization awarded the Palisade with its top ranking as a Top Safety Pick+ model. As of this writing, the Palisade has yet to be reviewed by the NHTSA.
