The new Hyundai Palisade was officially unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The brand’s biggest crossover will be sold in the summer of 2019 and will compete with large crossovers such as the Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot and Mazda CX-9.
Hyundai Palisade can be considered as the heir to the ix55. This is noticeably larger than Santa Fe. Its length is 4981 mm, width is 1976 mm, and the wheelbase is 2900 mm. The design found elements from Santa Fe, but the Palisade is usually more muscular.
The cabin can accommodate eight people in three rows, and most of the rear seats are comfortable and even have backrest adjustments. The second-row armchairs are equipped with heating and ventilation systems, and the front seats are huge, and, according to the Koreans, they offer unique comfort.
More expensive modifications include a virtual instrument panel and a huge 10.9-inch touch screen. Instead of the gearshift lever, elegant buttons are installed. All versions are equipped with adaptive cruise control, which has semi-autonomous operation, preventive brake systems and many other safety systems.
The largest Hyundai is equipped with a V-shaped six-cylinder petrol engine. Its working volume is 3.8 liters, and the maximum power is 292 horsepower. This engine works in conjunction with an eight-speed automatic gearbox that can transmit torque (in accordance with the modification) with both front and four wheels.
