Hyundai’s new 3-row midsize SUV lands smack in the middle of a very busy segment and is priced to disrupt.
The midsize SUV segments are abuzz recently. We’ve not counted how many new or all-new SUVs have joined these clubs in the last two years but we do know that if OEM hasn’t updated their product recently or plan to launch very soon, they’re going to lose big. The new 2020 Hyundai Palisade is poised to disrupt with value, styling and tons of room.
With a base price set at $38,499, the large and loaded Hyundai Palisade includes a 291-horsepower 3.8-litre V6, an 8-speed automatic transmission, seating for 8, heated front seats and steering wheel, Hyundai’s SmartSense battery od safety features, 16 cupholders, 7 USB ports, drive modes as well as the unmistakeable feeling of being aboard a luxury yacht.
Hyundai’ latest generation HTRAC AWD system is a $2,000 option, and a smart one at that. The popular Preferred trim retails for $45,499 and includes AWD.
Other available features include luxury-SUV-like rear vented captain seats, Nappa leather-covered seats, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch infotainment screen and a number of other active safety features.
Hyundai knows value, as always. Here’s the complete pricing structure as per Hyundai Canada’s press release:
