A new Hyundai SUV debuted here in the St. Paul and Minneapolis area this year, and Travis Fitzsimmons, one of our Buerkle Hyundai Sales and Leasing Consultants, can't wait to tell you all about it, and everything it can add to your White Bear Lake and Brooklyn Park drives.

The all-new 2020 Hyundai Palisade Limited is Hyundai's latest, three-row, flagship SUV. It's perfect for drivers who are looking for more room and to add a little more class to their daily commute.

Hyundai used their 3.8-liter V6 engine on this SUV, which offers 291 horsepower and the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds. Paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, this engine also has a unique drive mode select system, which tailors your driving experience to the environment you're in and the kind of ride you want to have.

The model featured in today's review is the Hyundai Palisade Limited. It's the top-of-the-line trim level for this SUV, and there are two other trim options available as well. These include:

  • 2020 Hyundai Palisade SEL, which has four options packages available
  • 2020 Hyundai Palisade SE, which is the well-equipped base model

Inside the 2020 Hyundai Palisade Limited

Slip inside the top Palisade Limited model in the video above, and you'll notice premium Napa leather upholstery, including a high-end diamond-patterned leather trim. An upgraded audio system and front seats that are both heated and ventilated are also highlights of the Limited model's interior.

Take a look at the rear of the Palisade Limited, and you'll find features that help the whole family stay comfortable, including:

  • Backseats that are also heated and ventilated
  • Separate climate control system that can be monitored from the back
  • Seven USB ports spread throughout the vehicle, with plenty for everyone to have their own
  • Retractable window screens on both sides, which are great for blocking the sun from the faces of small children, especially those in car seats

When it comes storage, the Palisade offers plenty of nooks and crannies for small and large items, including map pockets on the back of the seats, in-door storage, and multiple cupholders throughout the vehicle.

Accessing the third row of the Hyundai Palisade is easy, which is especially important if you need to use it all the time. An easy-to-use, one-touch button moves the middle row forward, letting passengers hop right into the third-row seat. Third-row seats are also easily folded with the push of a button, and there's plenty of cargo space behind it for your groceries and other gear.

Backseat comfort is a key element of this model, too, with a third row that's spacious and fully-adjustable seats that fold, slide, and recline. Seating is versatile and can be configured multiple ways depending on your needs for comfort and storage. Plus, there's plenty of ventilation throughout the vehicle, so no one's ever too hot or too cold.

Exterior Design

The exterior of this SUV is striking and has your needs, and those of your family, met. There's a dual-pane sunroof on top, and a four-camera monitoring system for all angles of the vehicle, including a standard backup camera. The rear liftgate is also power-operated and has hands-free operation available, for your convenience.

20-inch wheels are highlights of the exterior design, which also features a number of great safety features, including blind spot monitors on the side mirrors, which also have LED blinkers for visibility. Also included is parking sensors, which allow you to safely pull or back into parking spots.

Technology and Connectivity Features

For your convenience and connectivity, the dashboard for this SUV features a huge suite of technology, including a high-def, widescreen display highlights the dashboard, and it's where you can access features such as weather, navigation, and the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration that's standard across all trim levels.

This Palisade model also comes equipped with the unique Hyundai Blue Link telematic system. With this system, you can remotely control a number of functions on your vehicle, including locking and unlocking, all from an app on your smartphone. An SOS button allows you to contact emergency personnel anytime you need it, although the system will automatically alert responders if it ever senses that you've been directly in an accident.

From the driver's seat, there are also memory settings for the driver's side that can store preferences for up to two drivers, as well as handy buttons that let you easily turn off any of the advanced safety features you don't want.

Other tech features worth mentioning include a heated steering wheel, and gorgeous, customizable ambient lighting, which helps light up the cabin at night. There's also a driver talk system, which allows the driver to speak to third-row and backseat passengers without having to shout, and a wireless charging pad for compatible devices.

Speaking of the steering wheel, drivers who choose this model will find a fully-automatic lighting system, all Bluetooth and phone controls for hands-free operation, and the controls to turn on and work the automatic adaptive cruise control system. Finally, a digital driver's display allows you to customize your view and see many functions of the vehicle at once.
