The Hyundai Palisade Is Coming to Australia | Phil Gilbert Hyundai

The Hyundai Palisade Is Coming to Australia

Exciting upgrades and brand-new models await us in 2020 from Hyundai for NSW and across Australia. Perhaps most notable of all is the Hyundai Palisade - the all-new flagship SUV that’s already made its impact in the US and is set to work its way down under later this year.

Hyundai’s flagship SUV

The Palisade is already being hailed as the brand’s “flagship SUV”, and is the realisation of Hyundai’s desire to import enhanced large SUVs into the Australian market. Set to rival direct car-based competitors such as the Toyota Kluger, we can expect something of an evolution compared to the Hyundai SUVs and commercial vehicles we’re already familiar with.

Available with up to eight seats and an eight-speed automatic transmission, we’re anticipating both diesel and petrol power trains from Hyundai this year. 

A match for even best-in-class SUVs, we can expect premium features and innovative technologies that will put Hyundai at the top of its SUV game in 2020.

Superior features, maximum versatility

How are we expecting the Hyundai Palisade to compare to existing large SUVs in the market? With brand-new features that could just change the way you view SUVs and commercial vehicles, drivers can enjoy an advanced ride and more versatility from the highly-anticipated model.

Some notable features include:

  • An eight-speed automatic transmission that drives all four wheels
  • A 10-inch multimedia screen and 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster
  • Wireless phone charging and seven USB power outlets
  • Stitched leather door seats with Nappa upholstery
  • Ultrasonic sensors to detect movement in the rear seats - for increased protection for pets and children
  • 20-inch alloy wheels
  • A full suite of Hyundai’s SmartSense active safety technologies

We’re seeing versatility from the model’s strength through to its family-friendly capabilities. With everything from a “sleep mode” that turns off the rear speakers if the kids fall asleep, to an intercom system so the driver can be heard in the back row, trips away with the family can run a little bit smoother.

Larger than the Santa Fe, ample seating and an overload of new smart technologies - it’s no wonder this has been hailed as the brand’s flagship large SUV.

Phil Gilbert Sydney Hyundai car Dealers should have a Mazda CX-9 rival to be proud of by the end of 2020. While we thought we’d have to wait a little longer for the vehicle to be manufactured in right-hand drive, Hyundai seems to have accelerated the process, meaning Aussies could get access to the Palisade sooner than we thought.
